Travel on your board or kayak past Seven Isles.  You might see blue and green herons, squirrels, racoons, turtles, needle fish or maybe a wild monkey.

Your ticket will include a wristband that will allow you to walk the grounds around the Bonnet House’s Gardens and Trails.+

The Bonnet House’s construction was begun in the 1920s and completed in the 1930s.  The owner was the artist Frederick Clay Bartlett and his wife Evelyn.  The museum shows you the lifestyle of the wealthy as well as their staff. 

The Bonnet House is located along Fort Lauderdale Beach.  Its 35.4 acres include 100 feet of beach.  It’s on a coastal barrier island protected by the mainland from tides.  The house was named after the water lilies that flourished in the freshwater marsh that were called “bonnets.”

You may recognize the Bonnet House because it was the location for the movie “Hoot.”  The house was also on the TV series “The Bachelor” and “The Glades.”  It was used as the finishing line for Season 7 of the “Amazing Race.”

Coconut Cove was once a mangrove and buttonwood swamp.  The swamp was filled in and Mr. Bartlett planted rows of Coconut Palms.  You’ll see a desert garden, Orchid House, Shell Museum, Fruit Groves, Freshwater Slough, Silver Palms, Seagrapes, Coontie Plants, Sabal Palms, Gumbo Limbo and Paradise Trees.

Bonnet House Museum & Grounds really is the last of Old Florida in the present day.
