Family Vacation for Spring Training

My family (Husband, 6 year old, 14 year old, parents, and sister!) will all be in West Palm Beach/Jupiter in a few weeks for a couple Spring Training games. We are planning on a day trip to Key Largo, but are needing some other ideas for the rest of our stay. We won't have tons of free time, so not looking for anything that would be an all-day activity. The kids would like to do an air boat tour - is there a good place close to the area? Also need recomendations on best public beaches, good eats, and other family-friendly activities. Thanks!!

You should visit Loggerhead marinelife Center in Juno Beach. Just across the street from a great beach. Touch tanks, sea turtles of every shape and size. Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach might be fun. The Palm Beach Zoo. Carlin Park in Jupiter for swimming. Juno Beach Pier.

Near the Roger Dean Stadium you'll find some restaurants on Main St Abacoa and just across the street (Donald Ross Rd). Where are you staying? It helps with restaurant recos. All beaches in Jupiter are public and some good acess in Juno Beach (also a pier). Singer Island (10 min) has a couple of good public beaches.

Red Reef in Boca would be worth the trip. Bring a picnic lunch or something to throw on the grill. Blowing rocks is also fun if you arrive at high tide.

For eats I would recommend Guanabanas. The food is good, nothing super great, but the atmosphere, if you are not from florida, is awesome. Also Waterway Cafe, Panama Hatties,and the Tiki Hut at Singer, all are on the River or Intercoastal, nice for all and not real expensive.
