Even though most of the summer is behind us, don’t let that stop you from planning fun activities for the rest of August! Here in South Florida, there’s always new places to explore and fun times to experience with loved ones. That’s why we’ve put together a quick guide of sights that you can see during your last month of summer.
Named “the Cape of Florida” all the way back in 1513 by Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon, the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is a must-see for tourists and locals alike! This spot in Key Biscayne FL is home to a 1.25-mile long Atlantic beach with a historic lighthouse built in 1825. Spend the day swimming, kayaking, and exploring until you enjoy the sun set over the bay. Open every day until sundown, this beautiful site is only $8 per vehicle to behold!
For those who are ready to discover new things, we recommend you stop by the IMAG History & Science Center in Fort Myers, FL. This place is fun for all ages and provides a large open environment to explore over 60 hands-on exhibits. Learn about the native wildlife of Florida and see them up close at the Living Lab, or stare in awe of the 3,200-gallon aquarium. Regardless of the path you take, you’ll be sure to have fun and learn something new. Parking is free at this site, and children’s admission is only $10 ($14 for adults).
Enjoy a piece of history and a gorgeous walk through galleries, gardens and exhibits at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates. With 20-acres of property to explore, you may find it difficult to see every bit of Thomas Edison’s historic vacation home. By visiting this place, you’ll be exploring the heritage of Fort Myers FL and will form memories that are sure to last a lifetime! Children under 5 are free to end, while other admission is as low as $15!
Make the most of your summer while it’s still happening and consider visiting one the above sights to see! While AC installation is our main gig, we also want to make sure people get the most out of their time in the beautiful South Florida area.
