For a long time, Plantation in Florida has been a popular vacation destination. Close to Fort Lauderdale and the Everglades Wildlife Management Area, it's no wonder Plantation sees travelers return year after year. Before the area was settled, it was a wetland, and only in the 20th century was it drained -- a process that took almost 10 years to complete. Ever since, Plantation has continually grown and developed. Nowdays, the city is home to museums, cultural centers, restaurants, landmarks, and much more.
Plantation is not only beautiful but also offers a wide variety of things to do. Begin your trip at one of the most picturesque spots in the country -- the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Preserve, which is home to multiple preserves, refugees and national parks. Here, visitors can enjoy plants and animals (including alligators), and explore the wetlands which once covered the whole state of Florida.
To relax on a stunning beach, the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is an urban oasis that should be on every Plantation itinerary. Swim, snorkel, fish, paddle board, kayak and canoe here -- the possibilities are endless. The park features picnic areas and places to rent water sports equipment, as well as family facilities. Elsewhere, the Fort Lauderdale Beach boasts white sandy shores complete with shallow waters, cafes, and vacation rentals on the water front.
Alternatively, for a stroll back in time, check out the Plantation Historical Museum where you can delve into the history of the city and area. The museum has artifacts from local artists, as well as interactive exhibits, and guided tours.
The best area to stay in Plantation is Plantation Gardens where there is access to a golf course, parks, bars, night clubs, restaurants, stores, plus the beach only a few miles away. Vacation home properties in Plantation offer beautifully decorated gardens, private pool access, full kitchens, and dining areas -- great when traveling with family and friends.
