How to Enjoy Summer Drug and Alcohol Free
When you picture a fun summer day, does it include drugs and drinking? There are plenty of activities to do in the hot summer months that have nothing to do with substance use. Residents of Fort Lauderdale are especially lucky, because not only are there miles of beaches and Fort Lauderdale’s waters to enjoy, but the city is also filled with fun things to do that are sober friendly, from axe throwing to sailing the intracoastal waterway to visiting the Bonnet House museum and gardens.
When you are coming up with activities to do with friends or on your own, try thinking of things to do that will benefit your health, expand your mind, or allow you to have a new experience. These types of experiences will help you create new memories and enrich your life.
3 Sober-Friendly Summer Activities in Fort Lauderdale
The list of sober-friendly summer activities in Fort Lauderdale is expansive. Here are three ideas of places to check out that do not include drugs or alcohol and are family friendly.
1. Visit the Hugh Taylor State Park Bonnet House Museum and Gardens
This is a unique historical home build in the 1920s with incredible gardens. It is a museum, an art gallery and a working studio, with tours available daily.
2. Get a South Florida Adventure Pass
You also receive a percentage off the admission to Palm Beach Zoo, Zoo Miami, the Miami Seaquarium, and the Florida Aquarium with this pass.
3. Tour the intracoastal waterway on a boat and see millionaire’s row on a cruise boat
You can charter a private boat or join a company like Carrie B Cruises and explore the canals that are the reason Fort Lauderdale is called the ‘Venice of America’. Millionaire’s row is a neighbourhood of multi-million-dollar homes visible from the water.
Other ideas of things to look for in downtown Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas include:
- Along with the Fort Lauderdale beaches, south Florida is full of incredible art museums and galleries
- You can go axe throwing then get ice cream or visit a food truck, then see local Ft. Lauderdale live music
- Have wholesome fun at the Fort Lauderdale beach with friends – build sandcastles, have underwater handstand contests, play beach volleyball, or dig the biggest hole.
- Learn a water sport like water skiing, jet skiing, paddleboarding, snorkeling, tubing, kayaking or wakeboarding. It takes hours of practice and will keep you fit.
- Go for a hike. Florida has 175 state parks to explore, and you can enjoy the peace that being out in nature brings as you get a little exercise.
- Learn to fish. Fort Lauderdale Florida has incredible fishing opportunities and is a fishing destination for many expert anglers.
