Lion Country Safari

The kids are very close to going back to school, Lion Country Safari is a fun trip any day!

This amazing park was originally developed by a group of South African and British entrepreneurs who wanted to bring the experience of a safari, a very expensive and time consuming trip, to families who could not afford such an adventure. South Florida proved to be an ideal location and environment, with a perfect outdoor climate, plentiful land, and a growing population as well as tourists who visited from all over the world.

Today, Lion Country Safari is home to over 900 animals. You can see lions, white rhinos, zebra, giraffe and chimpanzee in the drive through area. There is a campground, a 4 mile drive through preserve, gift shop, veterinary hospital, and an animal dem0nstration theater. Lion Country Safari also offers educational programs as well as a summer day camp.

Hop in the car and pay a visit to this South Florida treasure, located at 2003 Lion Country Safari Road, Loxahatchee.

The Seminole Inn

BEACH SAFETY

Living in our beautiful state, a day at the beach sounds like just the ticket for a fun day! Sun, sand and a picnic are the perfect ingredients to make for a great day outdoors. Pack up your suit, sunscreen (always) flip flops and a good book for a trip to your favorites seaside spot.

You do, however, need to be on guard before you get your feet wet. Stick to the lifeguard protected beaches and obey all warning signs, informing you of rip tides, high surf, jellyfish, etc. Make sure your young kids wear appropriate gear. Never dive headfirst into an area where you can’t see. Pay especially close attention to young children and the elderly. Even in very shallow water, people can lose their footing and get into trouble.

Enjoy the beach but be cautious, and enjoy the beautiful and soothing ocean waves.
