5 Fun Southern U.S. Travel Ideas for Families


Miami Area

The Miami area offers lots in the way of family attractions. Beaches, golf courses and shopping opportunities abound -- you can even swim with the dolphins at the Miami Seaquarium, which is full of exotic marine life.

The Historical Museum of Southern Florida and the Gold Coast Railroad Museum highlight the rich history of the area, and the tropical bounty in the Miami Beach Botanical Garden is quite a sight. Get your culture fix at Casa Bacardi (which details elements of Cuban history and living) or the Jewish Museum of Florida and Holocaust Memorial.

The nearby Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve are unforgettable natural wonders; just a trip south of Miami are the Florida Keys, where families can bond while experiencing incredible ecotourism activities such as diving and snorkeling amidst an awesome coral reef.
