Other accessibility-friendly museums include the Coral Springs Museum of Art, and the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale and Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS), also in Fort Lauderdale. MODS offers sensory-friendly film screenings at its IMAX Theater on select days.
All Broward County parks – from Davie’s Tree Tops Park to T.Y. (Topeekeegee Yugnee) Park in Hollywood – provide services and programs for guests with disabilities. And so do the beaches and parks, including Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in Fort Lauderdale and Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park in Dania Beach. Both parks feature accessible picnic pavilions and restrooms, offer beach wheelchairs, and allow service animals.
For water fun, hop on a Jungle Queen Riverboats, which weaves its way through the Intracoastal Waterway, offering a sightseeing cruise and a dinner and a show add-on. Both the boat and island are wheelchair accessible.
Shopping is something everyone can do. Area shopping destinations, like Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise and Broward Mall in Plantation, make it easier with complimentary wheelchairs, plenty of handicapped parking, and the allowance of service animals. For more shops and centers, visit the Shopping page.
