“From Miami’s famous beaches to the Art Deco district to the Cuban cuisine of Little Havana, Albritton delivers an excellent resource for families looking to get the most out of their visit to Miami. This book is a guide for not only every budget, but every family.”—Brad Bertelli, author of Snorkeling the Florida Keys
In Miami for Families: A Vacation Guide for Parents and Kids, Laura Albritton, a Mom, Florida native, and long-time Miami resident, brings together all the essential details so you can easily organize your trip and maximize family fun while avoiding the common headaches of rush-hour traffic and lack of diaper-changing facilities. Sites, activities, and restaurants are all selected with the particular needs of parents traveling with children in mind.
Miami for Families covers hotspot destinations like South Beach and Coconut Grove but also guides you and your family through hidden gems like Wynwood and the southern Miami suburbs. If your family wants to kayak with manatees off Key Biscayne, hand-feed macaws at Jungle Island, ride a camel at Zoo Miami, go paddle-boarding, windsurfing, or golfing, or perhaps enjoy a stroll through the shops of the Design District or Lincoln Road, Albritton helps you navigate and experience every corner of the bustling city.
Dividing the large metropolis into 8 manageable, neighborhood-focused chapters, Albritton rates activities and outings by their age-appropriateness. She also includes practical information about nearby parking, restrooms, and ever-essential ice cream shops. Each chapter also highlights helpful tips on deals and splurges, rain day activities, and where to buy necessities.
With insights and strategic advice about travel, transportation tips, safety measures, and what to pack, Miami for Families is an invaluable tool for crafting a memorable vacation. Whether you’re traveling with an infant or a rowdy teenager, Albritton takes the guesswork out of planning your trip.
