Family-Friendly Activities in and Around Davie, FL

Jun 28th, 2017

The South Florida community of Davie is a wonderful place to raise children. Spacious two- and three-bedroom apartments and single-family homes dominate the real estate market. Davie is home to numerous educational institutions and recreational opportunities geared toward children and families. Other fun and enriching family-friendly outings can be had nearby. Here is a list of those most popular.

Bar-B Ranch

Davie is home to the largest, most well-established horse riding school in South Florida. As a family, you can go on a scenic trail ride together. Bar-B Ranch also offers lessons for riders of all skill level, as well as day and summer camp. This family-friendly Davie attraction is a 15-minute drive from AMLI Toscana Place.

Buehler Planetarium and Observatory

The Buehler Planetarium, one of the most advanced planetariums in South Florida, is located on the A. Hugh Adams campus of Broward College in Davie. Feed your budding astronaut’s passion, and marvel at the stars and planets as a family. Just a 10-minute walk from AMLI’s Davie apartments, the Buehler Planetarium is completely free to enter and explore on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.


Cool de Sac

Cool de Sac, a children’s entertainment center with an outpost in Miami, is a wonderful place for exhausted parents to take their restless children. Children can roam between art and computer stations, build structures with foam blocks, and play with a range of other equipment. A specialized toddler section is perfect for younger visitors. What is there to do while your kids engage with other children and their surroundings? You can watch them, or eat some of the best pizza in town at Cool de Sac’s full-service restaurant. This family-friendly attraction is a five-minute drive from AMLI at Doral.

Daggerwing Nature Center

South Florida is home to many centers where children can learn about the region’s biology and ecology. One of the most interactive and family-friendly of these places is the Daggerwing Nature Center in Boca Raton. Highlights include state-of-the-art educational exhibits, live animals such as osprey and alligator, and nature trails. This free nature center is a half-hour drive from ALMI Toscana Place and AMLI Sawgrass Village.

Galaxy Skateway

Spend a few hours roller skating with your kids at Galaxy Skateway’s Davie Road Extension, a 10-minute drive from AMLI Toscana Place. Also home to an arcade and concession stands, Galaxy is a popular venue for birthday parties and other celebrations. Open-skate sessions are held most days.

Laser Jump

A short, 10-minute walk from AMLI Toscana Place sits one of South Florida’s most exciting indoor playgrounds. Laser Jump, a state-of-the-art laser tag arena and play center, is a must-visit for families in the area. A toddler area keeps children too young to play laser tag busy, and giant inflatables and play structures add to the fun.

Young at Art Museum

Davie’s Young at Art Museum was founded on the belief that art is essential to a comprehensive education. The museum houses permanent and temporary exhibits aimed at toddlers, children, and adolescents. It also hosts art camps, studio art classes, and studio art workshops for youngsters looking to pursue artistic passions and hone their skills. The museum is a ten-minute drive from AMLI Toscana Place.
