A sunny city in a sunny state, but Miami is about far more than just the beach!
If you’re about to head to Miami with the family you’re probably already searching for kid-friendly activities to enjoy together. It’s vital when traveling as a family you factor in plenty of fun for the little ones, to keep them occupied and to avoid tantrums! Of course, keeping your child active and focused on fun during the day will also ensure a better night’s sleep when evening rolls around.
So, for your upcoming Miami trip, be sure to check out these fantastic child-friendly activities.
PHILLIP & PATRICIA FROST MUSEUM OF SCIENCE
In this huge museum, Children won’t feel like they’re learning, which is the ideal blend! Packed with hands-on, interactive fun, children can learn about the human body, the underwater world, and everything you can think of related to science. It’s a full day out and adults will love it too!
MIAMI CHILDREN’S MUSEUM
A museum especially for children is the ideal spot to spend a few hours and here your little ones will be able to explore with total freedom. The best thing about this museum is that it allows your children to explore the adult world in miniature form. Check out the tiny shops and banks! Local schools often take their classes here for day excursions and that’s for a very good and educational reason.
Located at Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa, this huge waterpark will certainly be a hit with your little ones and spans a huge 4000 square feet. Suitable for children of all ages, there are rides, splash slides, and even a lazy river. This is certainly a full day out and one which will tire out your little ones.
BILL BAGGS CAPE FLORIDA STATE PARK
Not only is this a spot for seriously beautiful nature but it’s going to keep your kids occupied for hours too.
