Miami BeachUnited States of America

It’s known for glamorous restaurants and designer boutiques, but this city also offers pristine beaches, fabulous old hotels and family-friendly activities.

Famous for sun, sand and surf, as well as its glittering nightlife and glamorous restaurants, Miami also offers a wide range of activities for families and nature trails to explore.

Start your holiday at one of Miami’s beaches to enjoy the warm waters and soft sand. Most of the action is at South Beach, but further north you can avoid the crowds and find some great spots for surfing.

For families, Surfside Beach is perfect, as it has a long, quiet stretch for children to play. Find yourself a comfy spot and relax or go for a dip. If you are looking for something more exciting, rent out a Jet Ski, go waterskiing, or grab a snorkel and check out the local marine life. Those who don’t mind going "au naturel" should make their way over to the nudist beach at Haulover Beach Park.

See how some of the locals live with a stroll around Bal Harbor Beach. Admire the landscaped gardens and pristine waters of one of the city’s more elegant areas.

Boutiques, restaurants and bars are plentiful, but many of the biggest and best are clustered around South Beach, which is the city’s social and cultural center. Here you can see a show, explore an art gallery, or dance the night away in a club.

Architecture lovers will notice the huge number of art deco buildings. Drop by the Art Deco Welcome Center for more information and to organize a tour of the city’s best districts.

Those with families should take a visit to Zoo Miami, one of the first free-range zoos in the country. Animals are grouped together based on their geographic territory, and animals that live peacefully together in the wild are placed in the same exhibit area. The Miami Seaquarium is another great family attraction with regular dolphins shows.

For a city with a reputation as a party destination, Miami also offers a lot for families and architecture and art lovers.
