Staying at home day after day can start to feel stifling, and we’ve been doing it for almost a year now! Most of us by now have found little ways to get out of the house safely to keep from getting stir crazy, but today we wanted to provide you with a few Florida day trips for when you really want a change of scenery! From racing to shopping, to gardens, this list has something for everyone.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Marvel at the architecture and vast green gardens of this historic Miami staple! Situated right on the water, you can take advantage of the cooler weather and tour the massive villa and its expansive gardens. They are currently offering audio tours of the gardens, as well as farmer’s markets and drop-in artmaking.
Schnebly Redland's Winery
The Sunshine State is known for it’s tropical fruit as much as it’s gorgeous beaches; and at Schnebly’s you can enjoy handcrafted wine and beers created from fruit harvested right in the Miami countryside. On top of that, you’d be supporting a Florida owned and operated business in a beautiful tropical atmosphere, complete with waterfalls!
You can book a tasting here.
Hallandale Beach, FL
Whether you’d like to sit and watch a race, go out to eat, shop til you drop (or all of the above), Gulfstream Park has it all! They even provide a fun range of bingo cards filled with activities and event offerings for those who’d like more of an adventure! They also offer activities such as bowling, billiards, karaoke, and an art gallery for strolling through.
You can find their Gulfstream bingo cards here.
International Polo Club
Dress in your Sunday best and catch a polo match, and should you so choose, attend their famous Sunday Brunch where you can enjoy an exquisite meal steps from the action, or even test your skill on the riding simulator! They offer simulations for general riding, polo, cross-country jumping, and dressage.
You can purchase tickets for their Sunday Brunch here.
Westgate River Ranch
River Ranch, FL
If you’re looking to get away for more than a day, Westgate River Ranch is a few hours away in River Ranch FL. Westgate offers “Glamping” (the more luxurious version of camping) with a variety of accommodations, ranging from air-conditioned teepees and tents to cabins and cottages! It’s the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors without having to forgo life’s little luxuries. They offer a Saturday night rodeo, as well as nightly campfires, rock climbing, archery, airboat tours, zip-lining, and more!
You can check out all they have to offer here.
While the world has changed so much over the past year or so, it’s always good to (safely) take a trip somewhere new, to relax, to have fun, and get your mind off your day-to-day life, even if it’s only for a day.
