You don’t need me to tell you that Miami is a great place for a vacation getaway. However, the nightlife that Miami is known for doesn’t make it the most kid-friendly city. But that doesn’t mean you can’t bring your kids along with you on vacation in Miami, as the city has plenty to offer that kids will enjoy. The key is finding the right place to stay, so here are some of the most kid-friendly hotels in Miami.
Trump International Beach Resort
One of the best Miami destinations for those with kids is the Trump International Beach Resort. This hotel has an entire program called Planet Kids that’s dedicated to making sure the little ones have a good time. Planet Kids is a complimentary service for all hotel guests and puts together a full slate of activities for kids seven days per week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The activities may revolve around sports, art, the environment, and more, all of which are both fun and educational for kids.
Planet Kids also puts on additional activities for kids on the weekends with an ice cream social every Friday and a pajama party every Saturday. The ice cream social includes everything you’d expect, while the pajama party is four hours on the beach with interactive science activities, arts & crafts, a dance party, and star gazing through a telescope.
If Planet Kids isn’t enough, Trump International Beach Resort also caters to kids in other ways. The hotel’s grotto-style pool includes a large shallow area, creating plenty of room for young swimmers. The hotel also has a mascot named Globie who’s always hanging around the pool area, adding another element of fun to the Trump International Beach Resort.
Loews Miami Beach Hotel
Another great option for visitors to Miami with children is Loews Miami Beach Hotel. This hotel offers guests age 4-12 participation in SoBe Kids Camp, which has half day and full day programs seven days a week and on Friday and Saturday nights. These programs include beach sports, arts & crafts, sand castle building, a scavenger hunt, and a slew of other activities that will keep kids occupied and entertained for long periods of time.
Loews also has a “Kids Closet” full of strollers, blankets, baby bathtubs, and other necessities young kids may need during their stay. The hotel also lends out toys, books, and even DVD players that will help keep kids occupied. The hotel pool is also rather kid friendly, as it’s quite large and shallow, giving kids plenty of space to splash around for hours at a time.
Fontainebleau Miami Beach
Finally, there is Fontainebleau Miami Beach, a hotel that is more than happy to go out of its way to give parents a break from their kids while on vacation. Fontainebleau offers babysitting services seven days per week, as well as half day and full day Kids Camp Room programs that engage kids in games, scavenger hunts, teambuilding exercises, and more, all while parents are free to enjoy themselves sans children. Of course, if parents want to spend quality time with their kids, the hotel has swings and several shallow pools that are ideal for kids, giving them plenty of options to enjoy themselves on the hotel grounds.
