When a town is nicknamed “Butterfly Capital of the World”, peace and tranquility can’t be too far away – and that’s just what you’ll find here. Coconut Creek was actually first in the state of Florida and 11th in the U.S. to be recognized as a certified Community Wildlife Habitat. But there’s more to this hidden gem than natural beauty and tranquility.
Coconut Creek’s lush trees, waterways, and beautiful parks melt the stress away. One must-do on your list is Butterfly World – literally the largest butterfly aviary on the planet and an experience you won’t find anywhere else. Or saddle up and enjoy a peaceful ride through unspoiled trails at Tradewinds Park and Stables. The beautiful grounds of Fern Forest Nature Center are tailor made for picnicking – all that’s missing is you and a basket of goodies.
The action will find you as soon as you step through the doors of Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, with almost 2,000 slots, 70 live table games, world-class dining, live music performers, three nightclubs and the Pavilion, a 1,200 seat concert venue.
If shopping is more your game, wander through the 23-acre Promenade at Coconut Creek and browse through 36 fun stores and boutiques, dine at 14 restaurants and sink into plush comfort and the latest blockbusters at the luxurious 11-screen Silverspot Cinema.
This small town packs a mighty big palette. Dig into authentic stuffed grape leaves and gyros at ethos Greek Bistro; sample fresh, upscale delights, from lobster bisque to hand-carved meats, at Santos Modern American Buffet and Sushi; get your burger and beer fix at Brgr Stop described by one Trip Advisor reviewer as “gourmet yum”; or indulge in mouthwatering Italian fare at Pasquale's Pizza Company and Sette Mezzo Ristorante.
Situated in Northern Broward County, just a few minutes’ drive from Pompano Beach and Deerfield Beach, Coconut Creek is a peaceful home base from which to explore Greater Fort Lauderdale. Nearby highways and turnpike access provide direct routes into Miami and West Palm Beach as well.
