Broward Drum Circle
at Fern Forest Nature Center
in Coconut Creek – Broward County has some of the best drummers in South Florida, and this is the best place to find them on a Saturday afternoon. The site is sheltered, so the circle rocks even in a downpour. I come up from Miami, and it’s always
worth the trip.
