family on beach

Family traditions start here

The most memorable vacation moments often feature your child’s smile. With our countless hiking trails, offshore excursions and hands-on activities, make a habit of finding picture-perfect memories that include grins beaming ear to ear.

Families looking for fun naturally look no further than Southwest Florida. Museums and theaters present hands-on and interactive learning experiences for kids, while continuous miles of park trails and beaches give them plenty of room to explore. Many of our restaurants even cater to little ones, all while showing mom and dad a great time, too.

Head to Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers and board the miniature train ride for big-time fun. Then, splash in the fountains, climb a rock wall, rent a bike or paddleboard, or just relax and have a picnic in the shade surrounded by green space. In North Fort Myers, set a course for fun at The Shell Factory & Nature Park where bumper boats, life-sized dinosaur models and tons of cool animal pens keep young minds fascinated for hours.

In a place as interesting and beautiful as Southwest Florida, even learning can be a blast. Local parks, preserves and museums like Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium and the J.N. “Ding” National Wildlife Refuge host guided tours that bring your family face-to-face with unique wildlife. It’s a natural fit for most visitors, young and old.
