Fun Activities In Lake Worth For The Whole Family

We here at Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill have locations in Lake Worth, Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, Lauderdale by the Sea, Sebastian, and Stuart. Throughout southern and central Florida you can find our wonderful tropical restaurants filled with happy people, including families and kids, having a great time eating fantastic food.

In our previous two posts, we outlined some of the fun things to do in Vero Beach and Jensen Beach. The two beach communities have so many different activities to offer that it was difficult to whittle our list down to a manageable size. In today’s post, which is dedicated to outlining activities in Lake Worth, we have a similar problem on our hands. That said, let’s dive into some of the exciting events and hidden gems that Lake Worth offers tourists and locals alike.

Palm Beach Bass Fishing

If you have any interest in fishing whatsoever, you are not going to want to miss the bass fishing that can be found on Palm Beach’s wonderful lakes. The butterfly peacock bass are a sight to behold in their own right, but when you add a little sport to the mix, then you really are cooking up a good time.

Comfortably aboard a 21 foot fishing boat, you’ll have a captain who knows Palm Beach’s lakes like the back of their hand. And if you have members of your party worried about being compelled to fish (or getting wet), have no fear. There is no pressure here, only good times. Likewise, if you are an experienced angler or are a first timer, your captain will cater to what you need. After all, it’s your trip! And by the way, if you want to skip the catching portion of your seafood dinner, come on by Mulligan’s in Lake Worth! We have some of the best Mahi Mahi in all of Florida!

A Farmer’s Market On The Beach

If fresh air, fresh vegetables, and fresh water sound like a good use of a day to you, then Lake Worth’s Farmer’s Market might be worth checking out, should you be visiting the Palm Beach region any time soon. The farmer’s market is right on the water, with a small town feel.

As one reviewer put it in her online review of the market, the market has “fresh produce and beautiful surroundings! What a lovely idea to have a farmers market between the intercoastal waterway and the beach! If you are the type of person who wants to get in and out quickly, you are in luck as this is one of the smaller markets where you still have a good assortment of stands and be able to get all your shopping done in a few minutes. Fresh breads, farm fresh eggs, organic vegetables and fruits and much more, make this a delightful place to shop.”

Talk about a glowing review! Lake Worth’s Farmer’s Market is definitely worth a visit to get some local flavor.

Downtown Lake Worth

Speaking of things to do in town, let’s talk about Lake Worth’s downtown for a minute. If you are a fan of coffee shops, boutique shopping, food trucks, live music, quality seafood restaurants (like Mulligan’s), and fun events like sidewalk chalk painting and face painting, this is a downtown right for you.

Another aspect of Lake Worth is that it has a unique, almost quirky vibe to it. As Susan C., of Georgia, put it: “Fun and Funky. It lives up to ‘Keep Lake Worth Weird’. One of the reasons we bought in Lakeworth is the Fun and Funky factor. There is not the typical polished corporate retail and the people are Very welcoming. There is a variety of eateries which are all unique and delicious. Many great festivals and activities year round. Worth a visit for certain!”

Nice pun, Susan! And we agree 100 percent with Susan. Downtown has a little bit of fun for everyone, so it’s perfect if you are alone, a couple, or are going with a family!

Rapids Water Park

Given a ⅘ rating by Travelocity, you probably are going to want to cool off at Lake Worth’s water park of choice, Rapids Water Park, the largest water park in all of South Florida! With 42 different water slides to choose from, the kids are certain to have a good time. While they are busy screaming their heads off and having a great time, you can finally slow down, unwind, and let the sun kiss your skin. The water park is 30 acres across, and boasts a variety of rides and activities, like the splash gymnastics at Alligator Alley.

Of course, no water park is complete without a lazy river and a gigantic (25,000 square foot!) wave pool. Located just a few miles north of Lake Worth, this is a family activity you don’t want to miss out on!

Eco Tours

There are plenty of opportunities to experience nature where the land meets the sea at Lake Worth. And if you are a person who likes to be a bit more active while being a part of nature (sorry, anglers), you can take an eco tour by kayaking or paddle boarding around Lake Worth!

And don’t worry if you have never paddle boarded before, because Paddleboard Connection has experienced, down-to-earth instructors who love showing newbies the ropes. Take sunset tours, full moon tours, and guided tours, and join so many others partaking the fastest growing watersport in the world!

Here is what one of their customers had to say about their paddleboarding tour with Paddleboard Connection: “Absolutely perfect paddle boarding. We came into town for 3 days and called/texted Paddleboard Connection last minute and Vivian was able to work is into her schedule. She was so kind to us and gave excellent instruction before getting on the boards. She was knowledgeable about both The history of Paddle boarding and the area! We just loved getting to know her while relaxing on the water!”

Clearly, if you are on the adventurous side, this is a Lake Worth attraction that is worthy of consideration!

Guided Segway Tour Of Deerfield Beach

If you’d rather get a lay of the land…on the land, something the whole family can enjoy without working up too much of a sweat is the segway tour of Deerfield Beach. Based in Boca Raton, you’ll experience incredible views from the peaceful vantage point of a segway. The coast is truly a sight worth seeing, and better yet, groups get to see the famous “Al Capone Island”, along with a host of other local hidden gems the Palm Beach area has to offer. And if you are worried about operating the segway, fear not, because their instructors are calm, experienced, and will help you out! It’s a low intensity tour, so get ready to relax while you enjoy the wonderful Atlantic Coast.

The Crown Jewel Of Lake Worth

You probably could have guessed this one! Located on 10 Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth, FL., Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill is a full-service restaurant that goes above and beyond “just seafood”. A kid-friendly, family restaurant, everyone will find something to enjoy on our extensive menu.

Found within the Lake Worth Casino Building and renovated Beach Complex, the casino is an attraction in its own right, as it has a classic 1920s feel. And if you are planning on coming with kids, keep in mind that there is no gambling at the new complex. Our community just wanted to keep the name “casino” to remind everyone about Lake Worth’s history. With happy hour everyday from 1-7pm, and a great line of desserts, appetizers, land food, and cocktails, you won’t regret you stopped by one of South Florida’s top restaurants! Come on by Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill, and come get yourself a flavorful menu item that is sure to surprise and delight.

Welcome To Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill

 

Welcome to the first of many posts about Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill! We are excited to create a place designed to educate our Vero Beach, Lake Worth, and Jensen Beach communities about our restaurant’s special offerings, interesting tidbits about Mulligan’s, and perhaps even some helpful information about local events going on throughout the year! There’s always something fun to do along the waterfront, and usually a great night out starts with delicious food. If you are a fan of tropical restaurants with great seafood, you have got to try Mulligan’s. We are family friendly and offer locations in Stuart, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Sebastian, Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, and Lake Worth.

But we are getting ahead of ourselves; let’s take a step back and look at Mulligan’s history and how we became one of Florida’s favorite fish and seafood joints.

How We Started

Founded twenty years ago all the way back in 1997 by Florida native George Heart, Mulligan’s has become a staple for Floridian neighborhoods across the eastern coast. President, owner, and founder George Heart has been in the restaurant industry for over thirty years, having opened Mulligan’s while he was still a young man. His mission was simple; to grow Mulligan’s brand throughout Florida while providing a family-friendly, tropical dining experience. George’s passion for high-quality seafood is sure to be noticed by your taste buds too. With a kid-friendly, an entertaining and beautiful waterfront atmosphere, and delicious fish and shellfish, Mulligan’s is the complete package when you are looking for restaurants in Vero Beach, Lake Worth, or beyond.

Special Events

We are proud to offer private rooms for special corporate or private events at our Vero and Jensen locations. Both comfortably accommodate large groups of up to forty guests at Jensen, and forty five at at Vero. And rest easy if you are having trouble thinking of themes or activities at your special event. First of all, there will be delicious food to take the pressure off of the coordinator. So we have you covered there. Keep in mind that while of course we can accommodate any indoor event in our private beach side banquet room, we are also able to host a special outdoor event in our backyard beachside or waterfront patio locations. Between the incredible food, breathtaking location, and our friendly, creative staff, Mulligan’s is Florida’s waterfront choice for any special event you may have in mind!

Our Menu

While you can check out our full menu here, one of our customer’s favorite offerings is that we are a full service bar and grill, serving breakfast, appetizers, soups and salads, sandwiches and sliders, entrees, and a great lineup of cocktails and other beach house favorites. Even if you aren’t a “seafood person” we are sure you can find something you will enjoy. Whether it’s steak n’ eggs, stuffed french toast, a juicy burger, or a southern fried chicken sandwich, we offer a wide variety of dishes without sacrificing the quality of our food. Perhaps best of all for families, are prices are reasonable, so you can take out the kids or in-laws without worrying about the size of the dent that it’s going to make in your wallet.

Stop by today and give Mulligan’s a try! If you are looking for one of the best and closest seafood restaurants around the waterfront in Jensen or Vero Beach, we would love to earn your business.
