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.

What People Are Saying About Mulligan’s Beach House Bar And Grill

Most of our local Floridian readers likely already know how beautiful a spot Jensen Beach is. Located north of Stuart and just south of Savannas Preserve State Park, there aren’t too many places you could rather be than at a lovely waterfront restaurant at Jensen Beach. Luckily, Mulligan’s Beach House Bar at Jensen Beach is such a waterfront restaurant, serving delicious seafood and other menu items that will be sure to delight your tastebuds. While you are busy tasting, you’ll be able to take in the sights and sounds of the water, as Mulligan’s is one of the top beach restaurants around.

Today’s post is going to be dedicated to our readers who want to know what people are saying about Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill. In today’s day and age, there are more negative reviews for businesses than bits of sand on the beach. It makes sense, too. People don’t enjoy it when they receive a poor product or service, and want others like them to know what happened. But conversely, when people get what they expect, they are much less likely to go out of their way and leave a positive review. With that in mind, we at Mulligan’s are very proud of the positive feedback we have received throughout the years. But we don’t have to look far to find some glowing reviews about the wonderful customer experiences we daily provide.

So, you’ll have to excuse us for a moment while we go ahead and brag about ourselves! We are proud of having the top waterfront restaurants in Jensen Beach, with wonderful locations in Vero Beach and Lake Worth as well. We want locals and visitors alike to realize that they don’t need to search “fish restaurant near me” anymore. All you have to do is make your way on over to 2019 NE Jensen Beach Blvd, Jensen Beach, FL 34957!

“Definitely Recommend!!!”

“This place was great!!!! We drove 20+ minutes to come here for crab legs for my moms birthday and she was more than pleased. They were very accommodating considering we did show up an hour before close as a large party. The calamari was delicious and the servings were large!!!!!  Definitely recommend !!!! Our server ty was great and very polite and professional… we are a large crazy group from New York!!!” – T.T.

We love large groups! So don’t be shy, even if you are from New York. We love creating a warm, high-energy atmosphere where everybody can be themselves, like T.T.’s group. By the way, T.T. is absolutely correct; our calamari is delicious (and huge), and TY is a great server. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review, T.T.

“The Hot Wings Were Super And A Good Value”

“We recently stopped in for afternoon drinks and apps. We sat at the bar in front along the street and enjoyed a beautiful day and view of the river. The spicy shrimp were tasty and the hot wings were super and a good value. Our bartender was very attentive.” – Dee B.

We couldn’t agree more with Dee, the spicy shrimp are absolutely incredible! By the way, Dee, thanks for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We are very pleased you had a good time and were had great service! We make a point to ensure that all of our staff, be they bartenders, hosts, or servers, all understand that there is no higher priority than the customer. While we can’t promise perfection, we do our best to make sure that every one is taken care of, and that the cocktails and spicy shrimp keep on coming!

“We Love This Place!”

“We love this place! This is our favorite local restaurant. Honestly you might find better fish somewhere else but you can’t beat the atmosphere and service. I love the tacos and always order them. They feature a large menu so there’s something for everyone.” – Kim C.

Thanks for taking the time to tell us how we are doing, Kim! We genuinely appreciate it, and even moreso when we hear that this is Kim and company’s favorite local restaurant! And Kim is absolutely correct, we feature a menu with plenty of options. So if you are thinking that you would love to go to a centrally located waterfront restaurant, but aren’t the biggest seafood fan in the world, we have some wonderful options for you. Whether it’s breakfast, appetizers, soups and salads, sandwiches and sliders, entrees, or beverages, Mulligan’s is the top restaurant around.

“The Service Is Amazing And The Food Is Even Better!”

“Came here to celebrate my friend’s little sister’s 21st birthday last week. We were all first-timers and very much enjoyed our lunch here!! The service is amazing and the food is even better!! I would definitely recommend anyone coming here and eating. We did like a family-style buffet and shared mahi fish tacos, clam fritters platter, and the monster fish and chips. It was also nice to have a view of the river and the boats docked there. Everything was amazing!!” Lina Y.

Talk about a glowing review! Thank you so much Lina, we are so happy you and your company enjoyed your friend’s twenty first birthday with us! Although we pride ourselves on being a kid friendly restaurant (making sure everyone has fun), we are also a top restaurant for birthday parties, company events, and happy hour! It’s tough to find a gathering that isn’t improved by the beautiful beachfront location, delicious seafood, and friendly staff. All those combine to make quite the tropical restaurant, but when you add in affordable prices as well, and Mulligan’s becomes a must-visit, if we do say so ourselves.

“A Long Established Local Favorite”

“Went here for a brunch after a nice weekend in the island. The food was good and the staff was very friendly! We were even greeted by the wonder upon arriving. We had a party of ten and the staff handled this very well. The only complaint was that two orders were wrong. This was quickly fixed without any issue. There was not a terribly long wait for the food to arrive at all. A family friendly atmosphere where the adults could chat but the child present could also feel comfortable. Most people in our party ordered the pancakes, even if they don’t normally like them since the pancakes here are fantastic. Would recommend this restaurant as a long established local favorite.” – Laura S.

Thanks Laura, we appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we are doing. And although we weren’t perfect that evening, at least we were able to quickly fix the issue and everyone got what they ordered. We highlight this to show you that we aren’t just full of fluff; we are realistic. Mistakes will happen from time to time, but even when they do, we do our best to make it right with our customers.

The other part of this review that we would like to point out is the fact that we are a “long established local favorite.” This is significant because to note because a there are more than a handful of restaurants out there that locals know better to ignore. Those types of restaurants tend to prey on tourists who don’t know any better. As Laura has attested, that couldn’t be further from the truth at Mulligan’s Beach House. We are the top tropical restaurant around for more reasons than our location.

We hope that you’ve enjoyed today’s post, and found it helpful in your search for Jensen Beach restaurants. We are proud to be a top choice for locals and visitors alike. With great specials, family night on Thursdays from 5-8pm (kids eat free!), and happy hour everyday from 1-7pm, we are Jensen Beach’s top waterfront restaurant for a reason. So what are you waiting for, stop reading and come join the beach party at Mulligan’s Beach House Bar and Grill!
