Family holiday in Miami

Far and away the most exciting city in Florida, Miami is an often intoxicatingly beautiful place, with palm trees swaying in the breeze and South Beach’s famous Art Deco buildings stunning in the warm sunlight. 

If your family likes to be outside, at the beach, a park or a pool or inside, shopping, eating or hanging out together – in Miami, you can do it all. Get the family together in Miami and you’ll be remembering the fun times for years to come.

Miami offers so many exciting attractions for children, from parks to museums to wildlife. If you have children along, you will want to visit some spots tailored just for them. When your family is ready to take a break from the South Beach scene, visit some of these kid-friendly attractions, which are favorites of locals and visitors alike.

Whether you’re traveling over your children’s spring break, summer vacation or winter holidays, you’ll find great weather in South Florida — which explains why Miami is such a hot spot for families year round. Long before the original Disneyland opened its gates, vacationing kids were flocking to Parrot Jungle, Monkey Jungle and the Miami Seaquarium, and even today, pastimes abound to keep even the shortest attention span focused.
