Or they can take the day and drift along blue Atlantic waters, looking for game fish. Closer to the sparkling shoreline, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding take “family beach day� to the next level.

OUT DOOR ACT IV Surf & Turf There are myriad diving and snorkeling locations in Greater Miami and the Beaches, including natural reefs just offshore from Key Biscayne. Dramatic wrecks add to the stunning underwater views. Miami’s many inland lakes and waterways — including those in and around the Everglades — provide ample opportunity for fishing, canoeing and airboat tours. In Hialeah's Amelia Earhart Park, Miami Watersports Complex teaches visitors how to wake board, water ski, wake surf and more. Our tropical environment invites year-round play, and the area's incredible parks feature biking and hiking trails, boat rentals, ecotours, swimming, picnic shelters, playgrounds, barbecue grills and game facilities. Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department operates Miami EcoAdventures, which offers a variety of naturalist-guided excursions.

The National Parks From biking to camping and kayaking, Everglades National Park has many adventures to offer kids of all ages.

Big Cypress National Preserve encompasses a mixture of tropical and temperate plant communities and wildlife, including the Florida panther. Sports Fans Two-time World Series champs the Miami Marlins, three-time NBA champs Miami HEAT and the NFL’s legendary Miami Dolphins offer kid-focused activities, camps and programs throughout the year and summer months. Major tennis and auto racing spectacles offer thrills for the whole family.

The Whole Package Be sure to check out special family packages and children’s programs when you check into a major chain hotel or resort, boutique hotel, condo-style rental or all-suite property. From meal deals or kids-eat-free programs, to special kids-stay-free pricing or tickets to local attractions, perks might include recreation vouchers and rooms designed with kids in mind. Many familyfriendly hotels in Miami also offer special welcome amenities like backpacks filled with goodies — beach balls, activity books and cameras or sweet treats, for instance. No Boredom Allowed While mom and dad enjoy some much-needed quality time together at the hotel spa or golf course, tykes stay busy in

full- or half-day camps featuring supervised kidcentric activities that might include anything from arts and crafts or sand castle-building to swimming lessons and shell gathering. Location, Staycation, Daycation... Many Greater Miami hotels offer attractive weekend and even daylong packages for locals with deals, discounts and special offers. Some hotels run two-day room stay deals, and some offer discounted spa treatments, gym and pool access packages for single-day use, even if you don't spend the night. Beach chair, valet parking, or cocktails and snacks may be included. Packages are limited, so keep your eyes open or contact your dream hotel for special promotions.

GETTING TO MIAMI

MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT 2100 NW 42nd Ave., Miami, FL 33142 305/876-7000 | miami-airport.com THE NEW MIA

Centrally located just seven miles from Downtown Miami, 45 million travelers pass through Miami International Airport’s gates annually. MIA is the largest U.S. gateway for Latin America and the Caribbean.

CRUISING FROM MIAMI PORTMIAMI 1015 North America Way, Miami, FL 33132 305/347-4800 | portmiami.biz CRUISE CAPITAL OF THE WORLDTM

Modern-day cruising began at PortMiami more than four decades ago, and since then, Miami has continued to build upon its reputation as the “Cruise Capital of the World™.” PortMiami welcomes more than 5.5 million cruise vacationers each year — no other port in the world matches this traffic.

GETTING AROUND MIAMI Looking for a fast, easy and affordable way to get around? Miami-Dade Transit offers several public transportation options. Metrorail is a 25-mile elevated rail system, with stops approximately every mile. The Orange Line provides a reliable and seamless Metrorail connection between Miami International Airport and Downtown Miami. Metromover features individual motorized cars that run atop a 4.4-mile elevated track looping around Downtown Miami. Metrobus offers nearly 100 routes, including The Miami Beach Airport Express (Route 150), an express route connecting Miami International Airport to Miami Beach in less than half an hour for just $2.25 each way. Free trolleys also operate in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Doral, Homestead, Wynwood, the City of Miami and Miami Beach.

To learn more about public transportation options, visit www.miamidade.gov/transit or call 305/891-3131. Virgin Trains USA (formerly Brightline) offers rail service to and from Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach, from Downtown Miami’s brand new Virgin MiamiCentral Station. Visit gobrightline.com for more information. The Lyft ridesharing app also connects people with affordable, reliable rides within minutes. Visit lyft.com for more information. Freebee offers free electric shuttle rides in various areas throughout Greater Miami. Rides can be hailed from a mobile app. Visit ridefreebee.com for more information.
