Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society in West Palm Beach
Okeechobee Blvd will get you anywhere you want to go in West Palm Beach, which is one of the reasons we chose it for our West Palm Bolay restaurant. And the Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society is conveniently located nearby on Summit Blvd. The zoo is home to more than 550 animals, many of them endangered, within 23-acres of lush tropical habitat. Great for a day trip, the zoo also offers a wide variety of educational programs for the entire family. If you go, be sure to bring swimsuits and towels, as the play fountain and nature pavilion is just one of the features of the zoo. And don’t forget to stop by Bolay for a snack, cookies, or a full meal. It’s just a short drive away on Okeechobee Blvd. View the location here.

Smith Park in Pembroke Pines offers the sprawling Paradise Cove Water Park with a lazy river, four 50-foot high waterslides, a large campground, and AllGolf.

Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge at Lake Nona
The Orlando area is famous for its theme parks, but there’s much more going on. A short distance from our Narcoossee Rd, Lake Nona Bolay restaurant is the Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is a wildlife rehabilitation and education center for Central Florida’s injured and orphaned native wildlife. It is currently home to more than 30 non-releasable native and exotic species. Their interactive website features downloadable coloring pages that kids can color before their trip. When you visit, bring the pages with you. You can choose between a self-guided tour or book a guided tour so the entire family can learn more about the residents of the refuge. After working up an appetite while visiting the animals, stop by Bolay for a quick snack or nourishing meal. View the location here.
