Gumbo Limbo is such a fun place to go on a date or with children (depending on your situation!). Inexpensive, fun, and outdoorsy :)
Spend a few hours here - great fish tanks with interesting marine life. Try to be there for a feeding. A butterfly garden. A beach on the intercoastal (tho you can't swim or wade you can watch fish go by). Not a whole day be a beautiful beach is across the road.
Entrance by donation, educational animal rehab centre. The large tanks were fascinating. Feeding time is not to be missed.

Amazing people dedicated to helping and rehabilitating turtles that have been wounded by boats, plastic and pollution. Maybe you will be able to view a "release" of baby turtles that have been raised since birth and helped to grow a bit before facing the cruel world. Large marine tanks and a boardwalk through the mangroves. Good any time of year-... More
Immaculate Research Facility open for the public as a Nature Reserve. The Focus is Conservation work for Turtles. There are usually some very large and old live sea turtles available for viewing, some that at some point have appeared at SeaWorld - Orlando.
