Kids are notoriously difficult to please on vacation, as many Hollywood movies have been keen to point out. But not all family vacations have to be filled with the grumpiness of bored children, especially not in Miami. The city has a dazzling range of family activities, to suit whatever interests the little ones might have.
Miami and its surrounding areas are rich with family activities for those who are keen on science, and especially biology. Miami’s Seaquarium has a huge range of animals to see and activities to take part in, and would please even the most discerning little customers. If water’s less your style and your family’s all about the vast, sweeping plains and bush of continents such as Africa and Australia, then the Miami MetroZoo is for you. Thanks to Miami’s climate, rare animals from all over the globe have found a home here. The MetroZoo is also one of the first free-range zoos in the country, and the animals are free to roam, only grouped by their geographic origins and in groups that peacefully coexist.
For a more natural environment, the Everglades National Park has to be the first choice, due to its highly unique biodiversity and geography. The Everglades are home to 14 rare and endangered species, including the West Indian Manatee and the Florida Panther.
When you need to take shelter indoors, away from all of that glorious Florida sunshine, you should head to the Miami Museum of Science, which will keep your kids occupied for hours. Alongside the museum are also the Bird of Prey Research Center and the Weintraub Observatory, pretty much guaranteeing that your kids won’t even get a chance to find themselves bored for a second!
Whatever your interests, Miami has an exciting and varied range of family activities to suit all tastes and budgets. There is also a pretty good Miami condo for rent that you may be interested in looking at. You can stay in one of these condos and enjoy the activities in the area.
