Drive your Miami rental car along the coast
According to the Miami New Times, 97.3 million people visited Florida in 2014. They flock to the beautiful beaches, exciting shows and exotic foods that can be found there. If you're considering becoming part of this year's statistic, take your Miami rental car to these awesome destinations where your family will have a blast:
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
Head to 3251 South Miami Avenue to visit the enchanting Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. Here you can wander through European-inspired outside spaces complete with gorgeous ocean views, palm trees and other greenery. Stop in the museum where you can tour the incredible, intricately decorated main house and surrounding gardens. Audio tours are available, or opt to walk through the facilities yourself to take a trip back in time and feel as if you've been transported to France or Spain. James Deering, an agricultural industrialist, called this place his home during the winter of 1910. You'll see why he spent his time here when you stroll the bridges and take in the incredible views from nearly every window. There's even a cafe to suit your caffeine and pastry needs.
Drive your Miami rental car to 2520 NW 2nd Ave, where your family can walk through the park to view incredible large and small scale art. Here, world renowned and little-known graffiti artists take over massive stretches of the park to leave their mark and inspire others. The project started in 2009 and has since grown to include such artists as PHASE 2, Faith 47, Daze, Momo, Lady Pink and many more. The contributors come from all over the world and use their unique styles to leave their mark on this Miami location. Your kiddos may want to do their own drawing afterwards, so grab a sketchbook and pens and head over to the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, where Shepard Fairey created the wallpaper. Enjoy Latin-influenced foods while surrounded by other artsy folks.
Buffalo Tiger's Airboat Tours
To get your clan's adrenaline going, hop on an airboat tour at 29701 SW 8th Street. Here you'll feel the wind in your hair, while keeping your eyes out for local swamp critters like alligators and birds that reside in the "River of Grass." The boat tour leaves you cool and refreshed as you glide through the glades. Dress for the weather, as it can get hot, humid and rainy all within just a few moments of one another!
