My kids and I recently went to Manatee Lagoon, an FPL Eco-Discovery Center, in West Palm Beach to see some manatees before the season ended.
(Manatee season is November 15th to March 31st.)
We saw manatees, learned some things, and posed for pictures.

Outside Manatee Lagoon
Let’s just forget about the manatees for a second. This area is beautiful.
You can sit on the many benches outside, eat at one of the covered picnic tables, and of course, watch for manatees.
During season, the manatees congregate in the warm water outside Florida Power & Light Company’s (FPL) Next Generation Clean Energy Center in Riveria Beach.

And if you can’t make it to Manatee Lagoon, don’t forget to catch the manatee cam that is always streaming live video here.
Inside Manatee Lagoon
Inside Manatee Lagoon, it’s like a museum.
The building is full of interactive and entertaining exhibits for people to learn about manatees and other sea creatures.
