The Superbowl may be over, but Miami’s party reputation still isn’t going anywhere. Don’t let that discourage you from planning a family vacation to Sunny Florida, however! Miami is more family-friendly than you think, and has gorgeous weather this time of year. Here are some ideas for a fun-filled day with your kids in beautiful Key Biscayne:
Miami Seaquarium – The Miami Seaquarium might not be the biggest aquarium, or even the best, but its location on Key Biscayne overlooking the water gives it a definitive edge over the competition. The aquarium’s modest size is perfect for a fun day that won’t tire you out, and offers several live shows to keep you entertained throughout. Your choices include the Top Deck Dolphin Show, Killer Whale & Dolphin Show, Flipper Dolphin Show and Sea Lion Show. And if your kids want more a more intimate experience with the dolphin, check out their swim-with-the-dolphins program for an adventure in the water!
Crandon Park Beach – Pack your picnic basket or grab a quick lunch and stop by the Crandon Park beach for a leisure break at one of Miami’s top beaches. The white sand and perfect waves are guaranteed to keep everyone in a good mood. But if swimming does get old, the Crandon Park Beach Amusement Center is there to provide kids with endless dry-land entertainment, ranging from a carousel, outdoor skating rink, splash fountain and playground.
For a convenient stay, check out the only hotel in Key Biscayne, Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne. Or stay at one of the kid-friendly hotels in South Beach area that are just a short drive away, like Lowes Miami Beach hotel or Ritz-Carlton South Beach.
