Peanut Island 2

A great destination in South Florida is Peanut Island Park, especially as summer time is upon us. This destination offers breath taking snorkeling options, 20 campsites, and the most popular aspect – Kennedy Bunker.


Along the beaches of Peanut Island are colorful fish that crowd the coral reefs of Peanut Island. The snorkeling aspect is great for families because it is in waist deep water. Visitors have spotted small nurf sharks, eels, manatees, rays, and starfish. If you’re lucky, you may be able to come across small sea turtles. Water taxis can transport visitors to and from the island from Sailfish Marina (another excellent restaurant for visitors to South Florida along the Intracoastal), and Riviera Beach Marina.

Underground Bunker

The bunker was created during the Cold War for John F. Kennedy’s command center.

You instantly see how unique Kennedy’s Bunker is from the moment you enter through a large, dark mysterious tunnel with a 90 degree angle to prevent shock effects in case of a nuclear explosion in the past.   This is a great experience for those who have never seen South Florida and really want to experience the history and beautiful nature of what South Florida has to offer its visitors.
