When you think about Miami and South Florida in general, the first thing that comes to mind is the beach, but there is so much more to have fun with your kids. I know because I have two kids and I constantly need to come up with new and fun activities.
I do think the beach in itself is a wonderful plan, but the tropical weather in Miami sometimes will boycott your plans. The summer tends to be the rainiest season and thunderstorms in the afternoon are the norm. That’s why many of the coolest places for kids are indoors; not only are you under A/C to keep you cool despite the sweltering heat and humidity, but you don’t need to worry about the rain.
Popular Miami landmarks include South Beach, Little Havana, the Venetian Pool, the Biltmore Hotel, the Miami Seaquarium, Vizcaya Gardens, Jungle Island, Lincoln Road and Casa Casuarina (the Versace mansion), but there is so much more to do. There are great museums and indoor playgrounds that will keep little ones entertained for hours, rain or shine.
Don’t be surprised by the amount of Spanish you will hear in Miami. It’s part of the charm and influences food, beverages, music and fashion. El Palacio de los Jugos (with several locations) is a Miami must-do for anybody who loves fresh juices, especially made from tropical fruits.
