When our sister-in-law told us she had promised her sons to bring them outdoor skating on REAL ICE in southern Florida, we were intrigued. Off we went, various aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins, piled into cars, to Hoffman's Christmas Wonderland. Parking was well organized...MoreThanks so much for joining us for the holidays. Come back for one of our chocolate making classes!

Lake Worth Beach

Reviewed By eboosler - Los Angeles, California

Plenty of paid parking, so if you get a spot and feed the machine you are set for the day. There's a great park adjacent to the beach, with shade trees for napping under and tables for picnicking. The beach itself is beautiful; white sand, lots of shells to collect along the water, always clean, with posted info about ocean conditions, temperatures, what kinds of fishies might be stinging you today, and when not to swim. There is always a volleyball game going on. The pier is a favorite spot, with the great restaurant and bar Benny's On the Beach in case you get thirsty or hungry. Everyone comes here, it's a true public beach full of happy people. Across the street, there is an Olympic sized public pool that we went to for years, for only a few dollars a day. It has been having its ups and downs, and was drained the last time we came. We sure hope it reopens as it's a treasure if you like to swim laps. Public restrooms in the building remain open for beachgoers, and some shops and restaurants right across the street make this an awesome beach.

Henry Morrison Flagler Museum

Henry Flagler's 73-room mansion which contains many of the original furnishings as well as an art collection.

Reviewed By JHLuvtotravel - Staten Island, New York

My friends and I visited the gorgeous Flagler Museum and we weren't disappointed. Henry Flagler was a extremely interesting man who used his great riches to make Florida the place to visit in the early 1900's. Not only did he create train travel to Florida but he also built wonderful hotels, hospitals and churches. Certainly a man with a vision for what Florida would become.

Downtown Lake Worth

Reviewed By Kariout - U.S.A.

I was pleasantly surprised when we visited this area, to see the small town, small shop
atmosphere. After reading very negative things about Lake Worth in general, I was delighted to see that the east end of the town is alive and well and seems to be thriving.
Because it was evening and we did not have the opoortunity to visit many shops, I cannot say whether or not the prices are reasonable but it looked so inviting that I plan to make another visit soon and check out the area in greater detail.

The gardens are small, but the plantings and fountains are very pretty. The Japanese garden is located in a separate area and has a beautiful door leading to it. We weren't able to see the sculpture garden because a private event was being held there. Admission was free.

We chose the Nature Center and its trails for today's visit to this park. It is so large families would need to divide the area and do a different activity on each day. The Nature Center had small exhibits, some especially designed for children. Numerous paved trails allowed us to enjoy the quiet and peaceful pine forests. There are also more rugged trails for the adventurer. There is also a deer and wildlife enclosure on the path plus a couple of natural ponds with plenty of birds to observe. This was the itinerary for our first visit, but there are soccer fields, a dog park, baseball diamonds, picnic pavilions. miles of walking trails, a couple of lakes, playgrounds. and most likely something else fun to do. Florida is very good about including recreational opportunities in planning the growth of communities, but this park is especially outstanding. The price is right--admission is free.

Lake Worth Playhouse

The Lake Worth Playhouse offers live theatre, Broadway standards, musicals, dramas, comedies, educational classes and independent film.

Reviewed By bookalukus - Lake Worth, Florida

We found this little theater while browsing in downtown Lake Worth. We obtained a schedule of events and returned for several of them. The first, a play entitled -----, was our first experience inside the theater. Built in the 1930's I believe, it has a 'retro' feeling as you enter. Probably seating no more than 200, the accoustics were great, the lighting was excellent, and the stage settings fit the little stage perfectly. We enjoyed the price of the tickets even more!! We returned a couple of months later for Evita, which was performed exceptionally well and left us singing 'Argentina' for days! Again, the price of the tickets was well within our budget, and the evening performance was a perfect way to spend an evening. There is also a tiny black box theater adjacent to the main theater where we saw the movie "Snowman", a most unusual and moving film not shown on the big screen. Will we return to Lake Worth Playhouse? You betcha.
