COVID-Friendly Places to Visit in the Palm Beaches

The social atmosphere has irreversibly changed due to the coronavirus pandemic. To say these are unprecedented times would be cliché, but I’d be remiss to say otherwise. Although the way we operate has changed, we still have access to much of the same things we had pre-pandemic, just with certain safety measures in place.

In prefacing this article, I’d like to state that it’s always important to follow state and local guidelines, but to also follow common sense. Please be sure to wear a face mask when out in public, stay at least six feet apart from others whenever possible, and keep hands washed.

Locals have undoubtedly seen the Diva Duck vehicle out on the streets before, or perhaps even on the water. The unique thing about an amphibious tour is that, much like the name implies, there’s a bit of land and sea interaction going on. Enjoy a scenic view of downtown West Palm Beach before sliding straight into the ocean! Diva Duck buses are open to the air and they are following local mask guidelines due to COVID-19.

In the quiet recesses of Palm Beach County exists a lush Japanese garden in the heart of tropical South Florida. Since 1977, the Morikami gardens have remained an important hub of Japanese culture and diversity in the South Florida area. Take a walk through the museums and marvel at botanical wonders as you peruse nearly a century’s worth of culture and history. The property is closed on Mondays but business as usual continues amidst the pandemic.

A Segway, for those unfamiliar, is essentially an upright electric scooter for adults. Although not a very practical form of transportation, it offers the unique ability to enjoy sightseeing as you would on a bicycle, perhaps. Palm Beach Segway Tours offers completely COVID-friendly, socially-distant fun. These Segway tours run about an hour or two, rain or shine, and offer many breaks and photo-ops along the way.

Topping our list today is Lion Country Safari: a free-range, outdoor zoological environment through which patrons drive their personal vehicles to view the animals and tour the property. Unlike a traditional zoo, Lion County Safari is enjoyed completely from the safety and privacy of your own vehicle, making it one of the most fun and safest activities for the whole family. Just be sure to bring your mask anyway in case anything catches your eye in the gift shop.
