“I’m not traveling out of state, but I am going to Universal Studios for a few days and they are just taking extra precautions to stay open, so I’m excited,” junior Alana Harris said.

An all-in-one-ticket at the Miami Frost Science Museum includes museum exhibitions, an aquarium, live science demonstrations and a Frost Planetarium show at only $29.95 for adults and free for kids two and under. Visitors must wear a mask at all times.
“My family likes to visit different cities in Florida a lot, so we are going down to Key West for the week,” junior Ashton Hubble said. “We’re going to scuba dive and be on the boat most of the time; it’s a great option for social distancing.”
Key West holds many great activities that are social distance friendly. Many people favor the boat tours and snorkeling to view the crystal clear ocean. Key West also has numerous activities to do with family such as the Key West Aquarium, Conch Train Tour, sunset sails and many more. The app Groupon has many deals for fun day adventures.
Traveling to other countries and states may be hard due to COVID-19, but there are several fun places open in Florida to visit during spring break.
