Drive your Miami Rental Car Along the Florida Coast
Why do 100 million people visit Florida each year? They flock to the beautiful beaches, exciting shows and exotic foods that can be found here. 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
On South Miami Avenue you can visit the enchanting Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. You can wander through European-inspired outside spaces complete with gorgeous ocean views, palm trees and other greenery. Stop in the museum to tour the incredible, intricately decorated main house and surrounding gardens. Audio tours are available, or opt to walk through the facilities yourself for a trip back in time. It will be like instantly being transported to France or Spain. James Deering, an agricultural industrialist, called this place his home during the winter of 1910, and you’ll discover why he spent the majority of his time here. It is inspiring to stroll the bridges and take in the incredible views from nearly every window. There's even an amazing cafe to suit your caffeine and pastry needs.
Next, head on over to 2nd Ave, where your family can walk through the park to view incredible large and small scale art. This is the spot where world renowned - and little-known -graffiti artists take over massive stretches of the park to leave their mark. 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 are international artists, and each unique style leaves its mark on this Miami location. Your kids will certainly want to do their own drawing afterwards, so just grab a sketchbook and pens and head over to the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, where Shepard Fairey created the wallpaper. Enjoy Latin-influenced foods in the presence of all the other artsy folks.
Buffalo Tiger's Airboat Tours
To get your clan's adrenaline going, hop on an airboat tour! You’ll feel the wind in your hair, while keeping your eyes out for local alligator swamp critters and birds that reside in the River of Grass. The boat tour leaves you cool and refreshed, gliding through the glades in another world. The weather can be unpredictable, and get hot, humid and rainy all within just a few moments of one another!
