miami tours with a family

With winter break coming up and so many days where children are out of school, having a list of fun things to do to keep them entertained is crucial. Luckily, Miami is full of family friendly activities that are perfect for a day of fun. From outdoor adventures, to indoor bowling and games, there are plenty of options for getting out of the house and having a blast with the family.

Here are five of the top things to do with children in Miami:

The Wharf

Miami River’s waterside hangout is family (and pet) friendly until 6pm every day. Here you’ll find various food trucks and games. Families can partake in games like oversized Checker, Jenga, cornhole, and more. Arrive by car or even boat to enjoy the lively festivities. Seating is first come first serve, and with the weather as nice as it’s been lately — chances are you’ll find yourself wishing the day would never end.

King’s Dining and Entertainment

Located in City Place Doral, is King’s Dining and Entertainment, a massive playground for children (and adults) of all ages. Bowling lanes, air hockey, karaoke, foosball, and more. Pair the fun activities with a massive menu featuring favorites like chicken tenders, pad Thai, burgers, pizza, and tacos for a day that’s hard to beat.

Wynwood Food & Art Tour

Who doesn’t love a day around art? For kids who love learning about history and checking out cool street art, reserve spots on Miami Culinary Tours’ Wynwood Food & Art Tour. Check out a handful of delicious Miami hotspots while scoping out places for your next family Christmas card photos.


Want an evening out with the kids? Make plans to visit Jungle Island’s Luminosa exhibit. One of the world’s largest Chinese lantern festivals has come to live in Miami. This brightly colored adventure takes over most of Jungle Island with interactive stations, rock climbing, zip-lining, a rope course, and more.


A little bit of golf and a lot of fun. Head over to TopGolf in Miami Gardens for a day at the driving range. If you’re looking to parent the next Tiger Woods, consider enrolling your golf-loving children into one of their amateur leagues or sign them up for classes. While at Topgolf dine on mac n cheese bites, burgers, hotdogs, and deven DIY donut holes.
