Key Biscayne, an island city in Florida, is considered a hidden gem among Florida travelers. The town, located south of Miami Beach, was once a village with origins dating back to 1947. The island is low and located between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay— therefore, it is often the first to be forewarned and evacuated in cases of natural disasters, such as severe tropical storms and hurricanes. However, on other days, Key Biscayne is bright, sunny, and beautiful, with clear blue-green oceans as far as your eyes can see. And there are loads of amazing attractions, aside from the pure white beaches, in close proximity to the town.
Beach Park is a favorite in Key Biscayne, with palm trees everywhere, pavilions for concerts and festivals, and concessions for summertime. The seaside here is protected and trash-free, so you can stroll alongside the oceans, wriggle your toes in the sands, and watch the sunrise. Typically, the average traveler to the park spends 3 hours here. Plus, the family-friendly seashore has a gentle drop-off, so younger children can skip and play in smaller, safer wading pools.
Another great place for families and children is the Miami Seaquarium—a vast oceanarium where you can swim with dolphins, watch whales splash in giant aquariums, and learn interesting information about local sea life.
