Planning for your next family vacation? Miami is a family-oriented city packed with must-see attractions and activities. From world-renowned museums to beautiful parks, there are plenty of family-friendly sights for you and your children to experience. If you are looking for ideas of things to do in Miami, here are a few recommendations that are family friendly and fun for kids and adults of all ages. For downtown Miami accommodations, stay at Hilton Miami Downtown and check out our Miami hotel packages for savings.
A great place to visit with toddlers or little kids is the Miami Children’s Museum. The MCM offers hundreds of interactive exhibits and programs related to art, culture, community and communication. Children will have tons of fun climbing through a two story sandcastle, walking through a six-foot piggy bank and designing their own money or dive into a sea of wonder and enjoy a gallery of water play. Plan on staying two to three hours to experience most, if not all of the exhibits. If you were staying in downtown Miami accommodations like our Hilton Miami Downtown hotel, MCM is only a few minutes’ drive from our hotel, where the family can grab a bite to eat, little ones can take a nap and adults can either workout in our fitness center or enjoy the rooftop pool.
Another fun attraction, also just minutes from our Hilton Downtown Miami accommodations is well suited for little to bigger kids. Jungle Island is a unique place to visit for animal lovers. This interactive zoological park has a petting zoo where visitors can interact with a number of domestic and exotic animals, including an experience with red kangaroos. There are also three different, wonderful shows presented daily; one of which called Winged Wonders is not to be missed and is the favorite among many visitors. Jungle Island will leave a lasting impression on any animal lover’s heart.
The last recommendation of things to do in Miami is for families with older children. Gator Park is an alligator adventure in the Florida Everglades. Here you can take Airboat tours and see the vast wildlife such as endangered birds, more than 28 kinds of snakes, American crocodiles and other marine life including, wild alligators. Hold on to your hats! The airboat ride is fast and will bring you face to face with alligators in their habitat; so close you can touch the tall grass that they live in. This adventure will have your kids talking about their experience for a long time to come.
