Setting a New Year’s resolution is a popular practice for many people. When the clock chimes twelve on January 1st, it’s a chance for a fresh start and an opportunity to begin the New Year on the right foot with the best of intentions guiding you forward.
Doing a quick internet search reveals some of the top resolutions people set in the New Year:
- Get fit
- Travel to new places
- Reduce stress
- Learn something new
- Spend more time with family
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with new goals and forming new habits. Try taking advantage of opportunities that can help you check off several of your new resolutions at once– I guarantee it will make you feel happy and productive.
I’d also recommend spending time researching unique and off the beaten path activities to make your year unforgettable. Here at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum we not only offer a memorable, one of a kind experience, but can help you work towards some of those 2018 resolutions!
Our mile long boardwalk offers visitors a chance to stretch their legs and get in their steps, all while taking in the beautiful scenes of a cypress dome environment. The boardwalk is a continuous loop so feel free to make as many laps as you’d like.
Explore New Places
We are a perfect day trip for locals and out of state visitors alike. A little over an hour from major city hubs like Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Fort Myers, a visit to the Museum will feel like a mini getaway from the hustle and bustle. Don’t forget to stop down the street at Billie Swamp Safari to wrap up your visit with some Seminole fry bread and a buggy ride.
Walking our boardwalk is not only great exercise but can be a special retreat for visitors to relax and unwind. Several rest stops along the boardwalk encourage you to sit and stay awhile. Spend a few minutes taking in the different animal sounds and the breeze rustling through the tree canopy.
Enjoy a self-guided and self-paced tour of the Museum galleries and make sure to bring a picnic lunch to eat under a traditional chickee (adjacent to the visitor parking lot). Don’t forget to stop and take in a peaceful moment by the crackling fire in front of the Museum as you leave.
Learn New Things
We may be biased, but we think there is no better place to learn then at a museum! The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum strives to foster an understanding and appreciation of Seminole history and culture. We are excited for you to learn about the Seminole Tribe of Florida through collections, exhibits, oral histories, programs, tours and more.
Quality Family Time
If you’re like me, making time for family is important, but it can sometimes prove difficult to pry ourselves away from the everyday responsibilities. Planning activities or outings together can be a great way to get everyone excited and out of the house for some fun. We know your valuable family time will be well spent at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum.
Whatever your goals and resolutions may be for 2018, we wish you all a prosperous and joyful New Year and hope to see you soon!
