Thinking about cooling down your summer by the beach? Bring the whole family to Miami!

If you like to get outside and exercise, check out Miami bike rentals. If you want to see and learn more about the city, the Duck Tours of South Beach are sure to satisfy.

Whatever you choose to do, all that matters is keeping the whole family together and having fun.


Here are four family-friendly ideas we’ve cooked up for you to enjoy. 

Explore the Coast with Miami Bike Rentals

Breathe in the ocean air and explore the Miami beaches on a bike ride with the whole family. Renting bikes is a great way to stay active and take in the Miami culture, while keeping close to the blue waters. There’s a whole host of options for Miami bike rentals like the Virginia Key Outdoor Center, Bike and Roll, and South Beach Bicycle Rental. Just make sure you bring a valid ID and pay with card or via app (depending on the service.)


Cruise the 305 with the Duck Tours on South Beach

Want to sightsee Miami but also keep the kids interested? Departing from South Beach and ending in Biscayne Bay, the South Beach Duck Tours take passengers to the Art Deco District, Fisher Island, Millionaire’s Row, and many other stops. Every tour guide has a background in acting and comedy to keep the family laughing along the way, and juicy insider information about the celebrities that live in Miami.


Spark Creativity at the Miami Children’s Museum

Encourage imagination at one of the largest children’s museums in the country. The museum is home to 14 interactive and bilingual galleries, all designed to stimulate a love of learning in your child. Check out the Castle of Dreams, a two-story sandcastle with a winding slide and an ambient sound experience. Or play in the Cruise Ship with a Navigational Control Station made out of legos and browse through a book at the Dr. Suess reading area.


Cool Down and Splash Around at Tidal Cove

Waterparks tend to be more loved by kids than their parents. But don’t worry parents, Tidal Cove is different. Located at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa, the waterpark has different options for both kid and adult fun. For kids, enjoy thrilling raft rides, defy gravity with the freefall loop, and test your surfing skills at the Flow Rider®. Then eat lunch at Surf House, relax in the lazy river, and satisfy your sweet tooth with homemade gelato for the adults.

Summers in Miami are unparalleled. With these four experiences, you’re sure to make memories that will last a lifetime!
