A visit to the Florida Oceanographic Society offers a number of experiences and activities for the entire family. You can take to nature and just enjoy their nature trails, or check out their 750,000-gallon Game Fishing Lagoon,.

Younger kids will love the Children's Activity Pavilion, or they can actually touch rays with their own hands at he Sea Star Touch Tank Pavilion, always a big hit with kids. Here, they can enjoy a gentle hands on experience with some of the exhibits

It's always a good idea to stop at the Frances Langford Visitors Center too, where you can ask questions, find out timings for programs and plan your day.
