South Florida Family Outdoor Activities

Heat and humidity levels are high in South Florida and that naturally leads to a desire to cool off. That means that many of the family-friendly outdoor activities will revolve around the water. There are also dozens of other activities that are available to enjoy a fun day out for those that want a land-bound experience. The number of options is so varied that in many instances even residents may not be aware of them.

You don’t have to own a boat, personal water craft or even a paddle board to enjoy the ocean, lakes, and rivers. Numerous rentals are available for varying lengths of time whether you just want to spend a few hours of quiet fishing, go snorkeling or even learn to surf. Florida has a very active surfing community and some of the most accomplished surfers in the world trained at one time in Florida.

Kayaking/Canoeing – Rivers abound in South Florida, providing ample space and scenic views. Some areas pass through wildlife refuges and federally designated wild and scenic locales that feature unique birds, wildlife and plants.

Fishing – From largemouth bass to sea trout, South Florida has a species for a mouthwatering feast. Trophy fishing is also allowed.

Paddle boarding – Better known as standup paddle boarding (SUP), a variety of locations have been designated as good places to take a board and enjoy the scenery that includes rivers, inlets, and established paddle boarding trails.

Boating – From the ocean to dozens of quiet waterways, boating is one of the most popular activities. There are small islands to visit, park waterways to sail, and a wealth of lakes that provide the opportunity to use a personal water craft.

Snorkeling – John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is the nation’s first undersea park and offers an underwater wonderland to explore. Florida’s reefs are home to starfish, octopus and squid, rays and urchins, along with some of the most brightly colored fish in their natural habitat.
