Summer break is a time to relax and enjoy your free time. If you’re in town this month and looking for places to go, here are five fun activities to do with your friends and family:

Plantation Historical Museum:

The Plantation Historical Museum preserves Plantation’s history showcasing exhibits such as the “The Many Faces of the Everglades” and memorabilia from the city’s beginnings such as its first fire engine. The museum is also located amidst a butterfly garden where visitors can wander in a garden of indigenous plants and flowers native to the city. To officially become a part of Plantation’s history, guests can order an engraved brick at the museum to place in the butterfly garden. Visit the Plantation Historical Museum this summer to learn and enjoy the city’s history. (Photo/Plantation Historical Museum)

Lockbox Escape Room:

Escape rooms are a great way to have fun with friends while also putting your mind to the test. Participants are locked into rooms and have to use clues around them to find their way out. The Lockbox Escape Room features various scenarios such as time-traveling experiences and murder mysteries for participants to solve. The company also features virtual escape rooms so you can crack cases from home. (Photo/Lockbox Escape Room)

Color Me Mine:

Painting is another great way to relax this summer. Color Me Mine studios include dozens of ready-made ceramic pieces such as mugs, plates and figures for guests to paint their own pottery. Using their wide range of colors, guests can personalize their pottery pieces with friends and family, and of course, take their creation home. (Photo/Pxfuel)

Painting with a Twist is another relaxing art studio to bring your friends and family to, but with a twist. Painting with a Twist allows guests to bring their own food and drinks to relax and socialize while painting.
