Discover Fun

Weather-wise, summer in South Florida can get pretty intense so sometimes you need a day inside. For an escape from the heat sure to thrill the whole family, we recommend the Museum of Discovery and Science, a hands-on museum with tons of interactive exhibits. Located just twenty minutes from our Sunrise hotel, visitors can take a ride on the Everglades Airboat Adventure, experience hurricane force winds in the Storm Center, dig for fossils alongside a giant prehistoric megalodon, enjoy the antics of North American river otters in their two-story habitat, or hang out with bats, turtles and sharks. You can even take a ride to Mars or soar through the skies in an FA-18 cockpit simulator. There’s also the 3D IMAX theater, the largest screen in South Florida, which plays a mix of commercial movies and educational adventures. So be scientists for a day before heading back to the Sawgrass Grand to discover comfort and luxury.
