Just because Pompano Beach, FL, is a smaller city doesn’t mean there is a lack of fun things to do! There are many activities for residents and visitors in indulge in. In fact, there are so many that we here at The Dental Lounge haven’t even been able to get to all of them yet ourselves! With the plethora of things to do in the community we love – and many other great new experiences popping up almost daily – here are some of the best activities we think everyone should experience at least once.
26 Degree Brewing Company
Don’t let the word “brewery” scare you. It’s still a place that can be enjoyed by yourself or with loved ones as long as they’re 21 years of age or older! While 26 Degree Brewing Company is very new, they have proven to stand out amongst other competition in Pompano Beach with a 4,600 square foot taproom that can hold 400 people. Along with that, amazing air conditioning, and a wide range of drink options, there is something for everyone here.
With its lavish shops and restaurants, many visitors may not realize that Pompano Beach got its start as a farming town, which is why visiting the Sample-McDougald House is so important to us. Since it was built in 1916 by one of the city’s finest pioneers, the house has stood and now serves as a historic museum with a walk-through tour. On the tour, you’ll get lost in its antiquity and elegance, which is refreshing to be thrown into from the hustle and bustle we all go through daily. We absolutely recommend this one to anyone that wants to get a little history in, even if they’re already a resident!
Bailey Contemporary Arts Center
We couldn’t be prouder of how much Pompano Beach has chosen to invest in the arts and entertainment, which is why the Bailey Contemporary Arts Center has stood out to us since its opening. It now is home to a dozen art studios, features large galleries, and provides spaces for
artists to work their magic and be able to educate visitors. You better take advantage and sign up for classes, attend any lectures, or watch an artist’s process because it can get busy very quickly!
Charade Sailboat Charters
You can’t say you’ve done everything that’s in Pompano Beach without some water fun first. The Charade Sailboat Charters’ day tour is perfect for those that are looking to get away from the business of the beaches. Captain Chuck is the perfect host as he’s welcoming and he’ll take you out on his boat for a day of laid-back fun in the sun that may even influence you to buy a boat of your own!
Visiting the city’s actual beach is a must for anyone. Pompano Beach is well cared for with clean umbrellas and chairs at your disposal, and lifeguards that you can count on if you find yourself needing help. While at the beach, it’s a necessity to take a walk along the pier and see what animals there are to find. We can promise that Pompano Beach has some of the best wildlife around!
