A growing number of shoppers plan to give their friends and family members an experience — not stuff — this holiday season.
Over the last five years, consumers have shifted some of their holiday spending away from goods, opting instead to buy services and other experience-based gifts.
One local option for holiday shoppers looking to give an experience over goods: An annual pass to one of the Palm Beach County’s tourist attractions.
Lion Country Safari is Florida’s only drive-through safari and walk-through amusement park is a gift that keeps giving all year long. Annual passholders receive free admission and parking. Cost: Children’s passes (ages 3-9) $60; Regular passes (ages 10-64) $75; Senior passes $67
Palm Beach Zoo/South Florida Science Center: If you are shopping for a gift for a whole family, consider memberships to the Palm Beach Zoo or the South Florida Science Center. Families can enjoy the memberships all year long. Passholders also get special perks and discounts.
A family membership to the zoo costs $145. A family pass to the science center is $100.
