School’s out!! Yay! Some of us parents are more excited that our kids. But some of us are all of a sudden in a panic, because…now what? What do we do with our kids all summer?  It won’t be too soon before you hear, “I’m bored.” But don’t worry, Broward County has TONS of fun and FREE stuff do! 

In South Florida is feels like summer in April so by the time the calendar says summer it is H O T!! Unlike the rest of the U.S. South Florida summer is often about cool A/C rather than outdoors. 

Here are some COOL ways to keep things Cool with Kids in South Florida for the Summer! 

Movie Specials! 

Some of the major theaters in the Broward County offer free or discounted children’s movies during the summer.  Be sure to arrive early for these because they on are a first come, first served basis, and what’s worse than promising your child a movie, and then having to leave? 

Regal Cinemas features $1 movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10:00 am. Get more information and the Summer movie schedule here:  One Dollar Regal Movies. Locations in Plantation and Sunrise, FL. 

Paragon Theaters in Davie, FL offers FREE movies on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays at 10:00am. For more information, and the movie schedule, go to: Free Paragon Movies

Located throughout Broward, in Weston, Sunrise, Pembroke Pines, and other surrounding areas. They offer an upgrade for added perks, but the basic membership is free. Sign up here: Five Dollar AMC Movies 

Perhaps you want to stay indoors, but want to do something a little more active than sitting and watching a movie. Don’t let your summer go down the gutter! Take advantage the Bowling specials offered in our local Broward County Bowling lanes.
