From gardens to museums to marvels you won't find anywhere else, Miami is a treasure trove of family-friendly attractions. Put some of the most popular spots at the top of your list.
Start your Miami trip at Museum Park, a 30-acre public park in the heart of the city's downtown area. Walk along the waterfront promenade, join in one of the many events and festivals that happen here, visit the contemporary art-focused Perez Art Museum Miami, or catch a Miami Heat game at the American Airlines Arena.
Make your way to the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, which hosts beautiful Italian Renaissance Gardens, a historic village, and a Mediterranean Revival estate. Whether you feel like cooling off with an indoor tour or running around in the outdoor gardens, there's plenty to do and see here.
Miami is home to numerous gardens, and the 83-acre Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is considered one of the best. See orchids, spot butterflies and hummingbirds, or stroll along the peaceful garden paths. Check the schedule ahead of time to learn about classes and events geared toward kids.
When you want to cool off but don't want to go to the beach, the Venetian Pool is a must. This historic spot dates back to the 1920s, and today this pool still has freshwater swimming surrounded by tropical foliage and Italian architecture.
