It’s not always easy or affordable to go away for spring break with the family. It’s also hard to rationalize taking the family on a trip when you live in this South Florida paradise.
If you decide to stay home this spring break, then you have to check out the Local Mom Scoop Spring Break Bucket List that will have your family love staying local.

You can dine at Café Med Deerfield which is located in the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with a view of the ocean. On Sundays, kids eat free starting at 5:00 p.m. It includes one free kids meal per adult entrée ordered and face painting.

3. Picnic in the park
Make sure to visit Boca’s Red Reef Park. Pack a lunch or bring the charcoal to this 67-acre, oceanfront park. It’s equipped with grills, tables, and restrooms.
