WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Monday is National Get Out of the House Day, and there are several freebies that parents and caregivers should know about.

Palm Beach Zoo is a great option on a hot and humid day, along with the winding shaded pathways there is the splash pad.

"It's very important for the zoo to allow people to come in as big numbers as we can get so that we inspire them to care about wildlife and wild places. We are all about conservation," Christine DeMichael, director of marketing of Palm Beach Zoo said. "By connecting them with these amazing animals, we hope that they care about them and do work in their own neighborhoods, backyards — and for Florida as a whole — to help wildlife survive and thrive."

For every full-priced adult admission in July, up to two children, ages 3 to 12, receive complimentary admission to Palm Beach Zoo. Children age 2 and younger are always free.

NOTE: Do not buy children's tickets in advance. They will be let in at the door.

Brightline has its summer passport available through Labor Day weekend.

Kids riding the train will get an activity bag and free admission to Palm Beach Zoo, Museum of Discovery + Science, Miami Children's Museum and Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science.

Summer SMART fares start at $10 for adults and $5 fares for kids 12 and under.
