Many visitors think of the boating and beach life in Fort Lauderdale as the main attraction, however there are a number of cultural attractions that certainly add to the allure of Fort Lauderdale for visitors. Two popular attractions that are worth a short drive are the Bonnet House Museum and the Morikami Japanese Gardens. Each are proximately located to Fort Lauderdale real estate , and if you are visiting or already a resident and have never been, I highly recommend a visit.

The Bonnet House Musuem: The Bonnet House is a historic home, on the National Register of Historic Places and is named after Bonnet Lily. It was built by High Taylor Birch and is a plantation style home and is a historic house museum that contains period furnishings that reflect the original orientation when the home was built. Located amidst lush greenery, it is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon going back in time.

Morikami Japanese Gardens: Morikami center for Japanese arts and culture is located just west of Delray Beach and is a learning center that includes two museum buildings and the Roji-en Japanese Gardens. Included in the gardens are the Garden of the Drops of Dew, a bonsai garden, and a museum gift shop and café. If you are lucky enough, the gardens are the host of traditional festivals celebrated certain times of year. Named after George Morikami who donated the space to be used as a park, it was opened in 1977 and continues to be a tranquil attraction in South Florida.
