Miami with Kids: Top Places to Visit for Family Fun

We all know that Miami, a.k.a The Magic City, is a vibrant adult playground. It also happens to be a fantastic destination for families with kids of all ages. We have put together a list of the top 10 Miami kids activities that will have your little ones smiling from ear to ear. 

To help you get from one venue to the next, we recommend renting a full-sized family SUV like the Porsche Cayenne. It has plenty of space for strollers, car seats, and all the necessities a family needs for a fun day in Miami.

Why Miami is a Family Paradise

When thinking about what to do in Miami with kids, the city is your oyster. From its pristine beaches to waterparks, the zoo, and children’s theaters, Miami ensures that every family visit is filled with excitement and fun. Few cities are as accommodating for young families as this city.

Top Miami Kids Activities

After intense research, here’s what the best places to go in Miami with family look like:

Fun Dimension Wynwood

This arcade and entertainment center is guaranteed to keep everyone, young and old, engaged for hours. Are you feeling a little nostalgic? Go up against your kids in an old-fashioned game of bowling. If the little ones are into video games, the virtual reality room will wow them. Add a round of bumper cars and rock climbing, which will surely stir up an appetite. Luckily, their on-site restaurant and lounge serves delicious food and drinks.

Tidal Cove

Located at JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa, Tidal Cove is more than just a hotel pool. It features a lazy river, kid-friendly pools, and seven waterslides. We think the term magical waterpark is more suitable. Parents can relax with a cocktail from the Surf House restaurant while kids enjoy the 4,000 sq. ft. pool. 

If you’re not staying at the Marriott, consider RealCar premium car rental in Miami to help get around the city.

Zoological Wildlife Foundation

From camels to owls, the Zoological Wildlife Foundation offers a unique opportunity for kids to interact with various animals. If your little ones are intrigued by wildlife, this is one of the most fun places to go in Miami. And it’s for a good cause. All animals at the ZWF are rescued or donated from owners who can no longer care for them.

Miami Theater Center

Ideal for aspiring actors and theater-loving kids, this center in Miami Shores offers kid-friendly performances, drama classes, and even camps. It’s a place where your children can thrive and explore their creative sides in a safe space. 

Bill Baggs State Park

Located in the furthest point of southern Key Biscayne, this landmark is more than a beach spot. It’s the home of the Cape Florida historical lighthouse, which is 65’ tall. The native wildlife exploration and activities like kayaking and cycling make it the perfect place for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Treetop Trekking at Jungle Island

An adventure park in the middle of Jungle Island is exactly the place your kids will love. The park offers 55 fun and challenging elements, including seven zip lines. Completing the course with your kids forms a wonderful bond and is a blast for the entire family.

It’s a place that combines art with stunning visual and physical aspects in a way that’s hard to describe.

Wynwood Walls

As an outdoor museum featuring murals by renowned artists, Wynwood Walls is a colorful and creative spot for families. The art is constantly changing, with new installations constantly added. Pro tip: Come often to see what Wynwood Walls has in store for you.

A water lover’s paradise! Matheson Hammock Park is great for people who want to enjoy a day out by the ocean. It also serves as one of the busiest boating docks. Not a fan of open waters? Your kids can take a dip in the manmade pool that connects to nearby Byscane Bay. The abundance of biking trails and picnic spots make Matheson Hammock Park a great place for families who want a fantastic seaside view while relaxing in the shade.  

Everglades Alligator Farm 

If your little ones are into reptiles and all things alligator-related, Everglades Alligator Farm is the place to be. It’s a little far, but when you rent a Porsche from Realcar Miami, you’ll be there in no time. Even though our vehicles are pet-friendly, we don’t recommend bringing an alligator home. However, you can get up close and personal with them. You can even pet them if you have the courage. 

Miami: a Trip to Remember

Miami is a treasure trove of experiences for the entire family. The places featured combine fun, education, and adventure. It’s a destination that promises something special for everyone.
