Florida is a great place to visit for people of all ages. But it’s particularly fun with kids. If you’re thinking of traveling to Florida, here are just a few of the best things to do:
Explore the theme parks
Orlando really is fun for the whole family. If you’ve got small kids, Disneyworld is always a win. If your kids are a little older, be sure to visit Universal Studios. Harry Potter World is a must-visit if you’re fans, and there are numerous other parks to explore- from Epcot to SeaWorld. Do yourself a favor and stay close to the parks so you can get the most out of each day. If you stay at one of the main Disney parks, you’ll usually have free transportation to the parks included each day, otherwise, it’s well worth hiring a car for the freedom and flexibility.
Visit the zoo
If you’re looking for a zoo with a difference, Zoo Miami will give you everything you’re looking for and more. All exhibits here are cage-free, and the zoo is well-known for its wildlife conservation and global environmental initiatives. Since the climate in Miami is so welcoming, your kids will be able to see animals from Asia, Africa, Australia, and all over the world.
See the Monkeys
If you and your kids love monkeys, you’ll adore Monkey Jungle. This unique park is an excellent way to get up close to many different primates while they have the freedom to scamper along branches and swing through the trees above you.
Since this replicates their natural habitat, your kids will get to see how monkeys interact with each other in the wild.
Hang out in South Beach
If you’re heading to Florida, South Beach is well worth a visit. Not only are there numerous beaches to choose from, but you’ll be able to enjoy some excellent restaurants, great stores, and fun parks for the kids. If you’ve got a car, a trip to Fort Lauderdale can also be a good idea, since these beaches are often less crowded than those in Miami.
See the Everglades
Most kids love the idea of getting up close and personal with alligators, and a trip to the Everglades is a fun option for the whole family. You’ll be taken along the rivers by a knowledgeable guide, and if you’re lucky your kids may even get to see a baby alligator.
