You’d never guess that the modern urban jungle that is Downtown Miami actually dates back to the 19th Century. For a great family day out, get swept up in the pulsing city energy that means you never know what is around the next corner, be it a beyond-the-cutting-edge clothing boutique or an old-school Cuban restaurant. Although easily navigated by car, save the parking headache and hop on the free Metromover to explore the area. But whether you want to ride the rail or take your time and walk down the streets, there’s plenty to see. Try to spot all the different historical buildings and teach your children the difference between Art Deco and Classical Revival architectural styles. If the kids get tired of seeing the sights, stop by Bayfront Park to rest on a bench and enjoy the peaceful oasis in the midst of the bustling district.
