Many parents worry about how accessible some beach towns are for their children, but luckily for us, Jensen Beach has our back. If you are traveling with small children there are many fun activities that your kids will love! For example, renting a scooter, bike or Segway and take a slow ride next to the beach, as well the wonderful Indian Riverside Park which is full of many interactive activities and has multiple picnic areas, a fishing pier and even a butterfly garden. Last but not least, make sure to take your kids to visit the Children’s Museum of The Treasure Coast. The best part about these activities is that adults can also take part in them and have just as much fun.
If you are into sports, you can have a relaxing golfing evening at the Eagle Marsh Golf Club, which features a mind-blowing 4000 yards field and a river course as well.
A trip can’t be complete with some gifts and local souvenirs. And you will be in for a ride! Because Jensen Beach is full of small shops that feature independent crafters and artists.
