Question by occali2006: What are free/inexpensive things to do in South Florida?
I am coming to Fort Lauderdale with my 2 teens (will also stay 2 nights on grand bahama island – Freeport). July 30 – Aug 3. What can we do that is free or inexpensive?
We will also visit Orlando and I will get Disney tickets.
I wanted them to swim with dolphins, but it is expensive.
We are bringing our own snorkel gear.
We will have a rental car.

For free… enjoy the beautiful beaches!
The National Parks are inexpensive and beautiful too, in most you can grill, fish and sometimes rent a canoo to further explore, or bikes or segways. F.i. check out the Hugh Taylor Birch park in Ft Lauderdale.
On a rainy day, you can also go the malls (f.i. the Sawgras Mills) and allow each person a small amount of money (like 10-20 dollars) to spend as they want, then meet again at the food court a few hours later and see what they could find.
To swim with dolphins for less money than in Miami Seaquarium, there´s a place on Isla Morada on the way to Key West, called Theater of the Sea. They also offer very nice shows, like a small Seaworld but I was surprised at how much fun I had, I expected much less. And the entrance of course is much less!
