Flamingo Gardens

Reviewed By lusby - Ridge, Maryland

We enjoyed our visit to Flamingo Gardens very much and were pleased to see the efforts made to help various creatures who have been injured and, if possible, return them to a natural habitat. It’s also a great place for visitors of all ages. While we were there we noticed several groups of school children who were enjoying their visit. The tram ride is a good way to get an overview of the Gardens and start your visit. Then you can return to areas of interest. There are lots of interesting tropical flora and birds, many flying free on the grounds as well as a large variety in an aviary with a walkway, and snakes and animals from the region. Kids as well as adults will enjoy the otters frolic in their habitat. There is snack bar with seating that looks out on the area where the flamingos are and is a pleasant place to take a break, have a bite, and enjoy the flamingos. The weekend home of the Wrays, the founders of Flamingo Gardens is also worth a look. We might have passed it by but a shower came while we were there and we ducked for a brief and worthwhile visit. It was interesting to note how small and modest the home was compared to many weekend homes of today.

C.B. Smith Park

Reviewed By J D - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Stayed here for 2 weeks plus. Rates compareable to others in area. Location is convienent to Ft Lauderdale locations. Sites are relatively large with paved areas big enough for unit to sit on, relatively level with full hook ups.Quiet in park unless they have bands or outrageously loud music from the many parties going on during weekends.. and sometimes the nearby soccer field. Was interesting to see iguanas, multiple birds, ducks, and raccoons daily.

I found this place randomly while driving by and wish it was in a better location but gosh they have so much stuff here! Nothing caught my eye this trip but i also had to rush through since i had other errands to run. I also saw another antique shop in the same plaza so its worth coming out and getting to see a few places at the same time!

I rank it to the level of the Mulhouse (France) Schlumpf Collection, which is said in the 10 best in the world.
Only-Packard Museum, but all cars maintained WITH LOVE !!! exciting for elder (who remember those cars : "He owns a Packard", meaning la crème de la crème of car owners) as well as for the younger ones, to see how BEAUTIFUL those pieces of art were designed. DO NOT MISS !!!

Tree Tops Park

Reviewed By Zonicle

We were in the Davie area and decided to pick up sandwiches at Publix and have an impromptu picnic. Tree Tops Park sounded inviting so checked it out. Cost $1.50/pp to get in. As we entered, noticed a pretty lake on the right with several picnic tables right on the water, had lunch there. Was very relaxing. Watched people paddle boating right in front of us. Drove around the park, is big! A very appealing feature is SO many shady trees with LOTS of picnic tables to choose from. No shortage of tables. And if you are a big group, lots of pavilions to reserve...all the pavilions were filled! Highlights: Great shady trails, an observation tower, boardwalk over a marsh, playgrounds, butterfly garden, paddle boats, equestrian trails, picnicking, lots of green areas!

Secret Woods Nature Center

Reviewed By sdms82 - Plantation, Florida

Visited this past Sunday morning with the family. The boardwalk path was a great length for my 4-year-old to walk herself and she got a kick at seeing the manatees at the mid-point on the river. There was even a play area set aside with digging tools so the kids could get their hands dirty. Once we were done with the boardwalk path, we tried for the mulched path, but it was closed-off part way. We look forward to when that re-opens. Once we were done with walking, we headed back to the monarch center where my 4yo had fun coloring and exploring. A very nice way of spending a couple hours of quality family time.

A very large well treed park with a 2 mile walking trail around a central lake this is an excellent place to enjoy some exercise and have a picnic. There are many picnic tables and several shelters that can be reserved for larger groups.

There is a water park area that is open on weekends. Entrance to the park is free on weekdays and costs $3.00 on weekends.

Ocean Park Beach

Reviewed By imosamchoon - Denver, Colorado

Their Parking payment machine is a real scam. It is supposed to be $2/hr, but it will automatically charge you $4, assuming you are going to stay for 2 hours. Some of their machines do not dispense receipts. So if you walk away from your car to the other side of the parking lot to find another one, a parking officer is just waiting for that to happen. They know about this machine or they would not just fine people parking near it. While you are far away he will come and issue a $43 citation. It does not matter if you paid after the fact. He will tell you to go ahead and appeal it. The appeal is a joke. It's a form and it is all the same. You will end up paying or they will send it to collection doubling the fine. If you are a tourist, avoid this beach at all costs. I'll never set foot in this state again. And parking is not only a scam in Dania. Miami Beach and Miami are just the same.

The museum is more of an activity center. of course There are some good works of art on display. But young children from Elementary and middle schools will love this rather than high school kids.
A few theme based displays are also available and they would definitely stimulate the young brains.
