The Week Ahead for South Florida: Hiking, Parks and Museums

Grovelands Park Winchmore Hill

The Week Ahead is all about Earth Day!

My Picks of the Week

BOA Museums on USBank of America has a great program called Museums on Us. Bank of America offers it’s customers free admission to local museums all over the country.  It is usually the first full weekend of the month and you just have to present your bank card at the door.

We have been to the Museum of Discovery and Science and the South Florida Science Museum with the program.  Basically it means the adults are free (as long as you have a bank card for each person) and you just have to pay for the kids if they are over 2.

Click Here for the link to see other participating Museums (there are over 150) in your area.

Take a Hike

Fern ForestBroward County Parks are pulling out all the stops for walks, hikes and bird walks!  Take advantage before it gets too hot!  You can choose from a variety of nature-related hikes and walks. Most programs are $3 to $5 per person; some are free. Call the park of your choice for additional information, including preregistration requirements.
