South Florida is known for its beautiful beaches, sunshine, and warm weather. But is your family wondering what other family-friendly attractions are in the Miami area? Whether you have had a bit too much sun or want to change things up, we at Carl’s Van Rentals recommend that you book a minivan rental and check out these Miami-area attractions.

1. Zoo Miami

Zoo Miami is located about 20 miles from downtown Miami and offers families up-close encounters with exotic and endangered species from around the world. The park is open year-round and is a great option for all ages.

2. Jungle Island

Another animal-themed attraction is Jungle Island. This Miami attraction opened almost 75 years ago and today is a favorite place to see unique creatures or spend some time at the outdoor water park. (Click here to read more about Jungle Island and its amenities.)

3. Miami Marlins

If your family is a fan of professional sports, then spend an afternoon or evening with the Miami Marlins (when in season). You can enjoy a few hours at the ballpark, enjoying the competition and atmosphere of an MLB game. Be sure to also grab a few hot dogs while you’re there!

4. Miami Seaquarium

The Miami Seaquarium offers marine exhibits, shows, animal encounters, and much more! From sharks to manatees, the Miami Seaquarium allows you to come close to water creatures you may have only seen on TV.
