South Florida Attractions

The list of things to do in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties seems endless. South Florida's tropical environment makes it an excellent spot for zoos and botanical gardens, while museums offer a respite from the sizzling South Florida sun. The following list of South Florida museums, gardens, zoos, and other attractions are ones that we have personally visited since this site was started.

Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf

Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf

Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf has been around for a year or so, but I just finally got to visit in November of 2015. There aren't a whole lot of miniature golf options southeast of Orlando - none that are really worth going to, anyway - but Lighthouse Cove is definitely a notch or two above the rest. There are a total of 36 holes; one 18-hole course, Paradise Falls, is handicapped-accessible and has more water features, while the other 18-hole course, Lost Lagoon, has more terrain variance, with hills and caves. My companions and I chose the latter of the two, and it was pretty nifty. Something I've not seen even in the Orlando area were two holes that included over-water shots. The first of these shots seemed deceptively easy, but two of us hit rocks and bounced into the water. Fortunately, there are pool nets placed throughout the course, so we didn't have to go wading! The second over-water hole? Well, I'll be honest, it didn't even look possible, so we just rolled our balls across! Lighthouse Cove also has an ice cream shop in the main lobby, as well as a little burger joint/snack bar. Overall, Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf isn't quite as extravagant as some of its counterparts in central Florida, but it's worth a visit if you're in the area. Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf is open every day from 10AM to 11PM (latest admission is 10PM). Pricing is as follows: 18 Holes: $11.99 36 Holes: $13.99 Children 5 & under: $6 Seniors: $9.99 Military: $8.00 Replay Rate: $4.00 Unlimited Play $16.00 (Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf continued)
