Miami Seaquarium

Lolita the killer whale, jumping dolphins, shark feedings, sea turtles and manatees are all here for your family to enjoy. You can even touch a string ray at the new Stingray Touch Pool or walk under water without getting your hair wet in the Sea Trek Reef Encounter. This place is a Miami favorite with locals and visitors, especially the dolphin shows. And if swimming with a dolphin is on your bucket list, you can do it here in their Dolphin Harbor. This is the top rated place to swim with dolphins in the entire state and it’s right in your own backyard. The Miami Seaquarium is open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Museum of Discovery and Science

Any day of the year, you can come here and discovery something amazing. There is so much to do here for kids of all ages. From an Everglades Airboat Adventure to feeling hurricane force winds in the Storm Center, you won’t believe how much fun you can have learning about so many different things. Fossil digs, river otters, sharks, bats and snakes – and this is the short list of what you can see, feel, and experience. Mom and dad will love it, too. Hours are 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday; and 12 pm to 6 p.m. each Sunday. They also boast the largest IMAX screen in South Florida.

Lion Country Safari

There are many people who live in South Florida that have never experienced Lion Country Safari, and they don’t know what they’re missing! First up, their four-mile drive-thru safari will take your breath away. Keep those windows up as you approach lions, ostriches, buffalo, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests and more. It’s a great way to start the day, then move on to their Safari World Amusement Park where you can actually feed a giraffe, ride a Ferris Wheel, get soaked at the water spray ground or take a ride on a paddle boat. This might just become your new favorite place to hang out every weekend.

Zoo Miami

Did you know that your neighborhood zoo is one of the top ten zoos in the entire nation by TripAdvisor? You can see more than 2,000 animals here in a unique, open setting. Walk it, take the air-conditioned monorail from end to end, or rent a canopied bike and pedal your way around the habitats and exhibits. Have you ever been licked by an 18’ tall animal? You can at the Giraffe Feeding Station. You can also take a camel ride, feed a parrot, or bring your swimsuit and hand out at the water play areas. It’s definitely a place to spend the entire day.
