There are so many things to do in Fort Lauderdale with kids. Sometimes it’s great to have a list of places to choose from so that you can plan accordingly.

It’s been extremely taxing on everyone over the last few months and getting out the house has been a matter of what to do and when. Since everyone is still practicing social distancing, it’s best to see what activities are available & how the facilities are implementing safety protocols.

Every family is different when it comes to deciding what and when activities are safe. 

I’ve noticed a lot of families prefer outdoor activities however it really depends on you and your family.
