While there is still some of the night’s freshness in the air, head to one of Miami’s many juice bars for a vitamin-packed breakfast. Locals will agree, there’s nothing better than a fresh start to a hot day. Bright green, purple, or yellow, the ample variety of juices served in Miami will please both your little one’s eyes and taste buds. Continue your morning by feeding parrots, observing tigers or acrobatic monkeys at the Jungle Island. When nap-time hits, stroll along Miami Beach’s Marina down to South Pointe Park. Located at the tip of Miami Beach’s island, it offers magical water views, a water playground and a lagoon-like beach. After diving in Crandon Park Beach’s turquoise sea, wrap up your day in Wynwood – a unique district turned into an open-air art gallery. Among this labyrinth of graffiti-covered walls, you will find some of the best-dining options in town.
