Places to go on your Davie Adventure
Throughout the summer weather, outdoor activities are the perfect solution for a great time. We'd suggest spending time at a Town park, cool down at the pool, or spend it in the air conditioning touring the Old Davie School Historical Museum and surrounding areas.
1. Old Davie School Historical Museum
The Old Davie School Historical Museum (ODSHM) is on the must-visit list for locals and visitors looking to learn more about the rich past of what was Davie where residents rode horses instead of cars.
Before leaving, be sure to snap a picture at the beautifully diverse mural that represents our Town and catch a tour while you’re at it!
EVENTS: Who you gonna call? Bust a ghost at the Old Davie School Historical Museum during a Paranormal investigation or boot camp. If paranormal activity is not your cup of tea, join the ODSHM for their Teach & Tea lessons and Let’s Paint events. To schedule a tour, visit olddavieschool.org or call 954-797-1044.

4. Shop Small, Shop Local
Whether you're craving ice cream, donuts, or looking to buy hay for your horse, it's never too late to shop small. Small businesses are easy to find across Davie from Flamingo Road to Griffin Road to Davie Road and buying locally helps our economy recover from the pandemic.
Visit your local plaza to support local businesses, celebrate their patronage, and encourage others to visit these businesses too!
Within Davie, residents and visitors can experience a nature escape by visiting Flamingo Gardens, Long Key Nature Park, and Tree Tops Park.
