This Miami Seaquarium post was written by my sister and Modern Boca Mom contributor, Lauren Ricks. I am so happy she decided to share her experience and share a Miami Seaquarium coupon with all of us! Enjoy!
Being a big fan of sea animals and wildlife, it was a no brainer taking my son Aden down to the Miami Seaquarium! Did you know that you can visit world-class exhibits with manatees, sea turtles, penguins, rays and more? And it’s less than an hour away from Boca Raton!
The beginning of summer was rough for my family. I’m always a bit burned out by the end of the school year since not only am I a mom, but I also work at a local Boca private school. But what complicated everything this year was that my grandfather (at age 92) passed away on June 1st. Yes, I know it was his time and he lived a great life (especially being married to my grandmother for 70 years!!). But it also created a lot of extra work for my family. We had never planned a funeral before. Now we are experts…unfortunately… :/
So when an invitation to experience a fancy family trip to Miami came across my inbox, I was grateful for the break. And the timing meant I would leave directly after my grandfather’s memorial service reception. It was perfect!
I love to take my daughter to New York City. Modern Boca Dadand I lived in the Big Apple for almost 9 years and really enjoy heading back to the site of our 20’s to visit and reminisce. But now that we have a six year-old, our priorities as tourists have changed. These days, we’re more interested in having Tea with Eloise vs. Sleeping No More. And after a recent trip to the city, I have some awesome new recommendations for your next family visit. Here are Modern Boca Mom’s top things to do with kids in NYC this spring and summer!
At a space-themed ceremony, the Canaveral Port Authority and longtime cruise partner Carnival Cruise Line officially broke ground for construction of Port Canaveral’s new Cruise Terminal 3 complex. The new terminal, dubbed the Launch Pad, will be the home of the Carnival Mardi Gras, the cruise line’s newest and most innovative ship, beginning in 2020!
Currently under construction, Mardi Gras will arrive at Port Canaveral mid-October 2020. It will feature:
BOLT, the first roller coaster at sea
20 passenger decks
6 distinctive theme zones of fun, dining and entertainment:
The French Quarter with Emeril’s Bistro 1396, the first restaurant at sea created by famed New Orleans chef Emeril Lagasse
The Ultimate Playground
We can’t wait to see the Carnival Mardi Gras in all its glory!
