Have you heard of The Girls Strawberry U-Pick? This hidden GEM even has GEM Mining (yes, pun intended)! When you pull up to the location, you might be fooled by the strip mall appearance of the entrance…but when you open the backdoor you enter a tropical paradise!
Jupiter Family Fun Co-Owner, Brooke Grogan, recently spent the day at The Girls and her kids thought it rivaled (dare we say it?) Disney World! The moment you walk in, you are entranced by a vintage candy store that has all the feels of a Candy Shop that your grandparents would have frequented as children (think the 50s and 60s). Do you remember the scene from Willy Wonka where the Candy Man is passing out sweets to the kids? It feels JUST like that! The excitement factor is INSTANT! After you spend some time enjoying the nostalgia and picking out your favorite candy, at the very back of the store there is a door that leads outside. The second you open the door, you have entered an open air tropical oasis.

The hardest decision of the day will be deciding which animal food to buy (and which animals to feed first)! With birds, bunnies, goats, donkeys, and ponies to feed, you can spend hours up close and personal with some of your favorite animals! We highly recommend buying several of the bird branches, as The Grogan children spent the most time in the bird habitat. With the petting zoo, bird feeding enclosure, gem mining, and more – The Girls provides hours of outdoor fun and excitement! Make sure to bring your appetite too, you can enjoy authentic New York Style pizza at Bambini’s Garden Pizzeria (a large pizza is HUGE)! Order your favorite toppings and then sit outside in The Girls covered patio seating! Be sure to save a little room because they have HOMEMADE ICE CREAM! Right now the Strawberry Patch is closed, however during season you can add strawberry picking to your experience!
