Summer Fun and Adventure is a Train Ride Away

  • Post author:

If you are one of the many who are feeling like it is finally time to get out of the house, you are surely looking for some adventurous outings, and we know the perfect thing to scratch that itch. It does not matter what your interests are, there is something for everyone in South Florida – from history buffs, parents, shoppers to foodies and more.

What kind of adventure are you looking for? Here are a few to get your wheels spinning – all accessible by Tri-Rail, which has everything you might need, including onboard Wi-Fi, free parking at train stations, and 18 of those stations with connections or short Uber rides to these South Florida attractions. And it is just $5 to ride all day on the weekends.

Parents and kids at heart

Visit the Palm Beach Zoo for a fun outdoor day with the animals. Or if you want to take the kids for an interactive day of fun and learning, you can stop by the Museum of Discovery and Science in Broward County, where there’s also an IMAX theater, or swing into the Frost Science Museum in Miami. They are both easily accessible via Tri-Rail, which is free for kids under 5, which, let’s admit, would be like a dream for the little ones.


Most of us don’t want to be on cooking duty every night, so why not give yourself a break and let someone else take over? Check out Bayside Marketplace, where there is an array of food, tropical cocktails, and beautiful views. The train can take you there, too, but it can also make stops at other restaurants.


The Shops at Las Olas, in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Florida, features eclectic shopping, with everything from fashion boutiques to art galleries.

Nature lovers

Nestled in the beautiful neighborhood of Coconut Grove is the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, where you can enjoy 10 acres of spectacular Italianate gardens and tour the main floor of the historic villa and estate of businessman James Deering.

History buffs

Engage in education experiences and innovative cultural exhibits, research, and preservation artifacts at History Fort Lauderdale.

You can easily get to each fun spot above, and about a dozen others in South Florida, by taking Tri-Rail. Not only does the rail system have Wi-Fi and $5 fares on weekends, but bikes are also welcome on board, too.

Taking Tri-Rail is not just a way to get from A to B, it is something new and fun to do and a great way to explore various destinations around South Florida. Visitors will find it is an easy way to get around town, too.
