Miami Area Professional Review and Guide

"Miami is an international city. It’s not only the business capital of the Caribbean Islands, but also a playground for wealthy European, Central American, and South American travelers. Miami attracts more foreign visitors than any other U.S. city, so spending a vacation here is like arriving in a far-off port without ever leaving the states. Spanish is the primary language here. Expect to see exotic plants, such as the orange and purple blooms of birds of paradise and the tangled roots of giant banyan trees. You’ll see tiny green tree frogs with suction-cup feet hopping among the plants and meet chameleons doing tiny pushups on your resort patio.

With this eTrail you will visit these family-friendly places: Newport Fishing Pier, Haulover Park / Skyward Kites, Oleta River State Recreation Area, North Shore Open Space Park, Wolfie Cohen's Rascal House, Holocaust Memorial, Sanford L. Ziff Jewish Memorial of Florida, Seaquarium, Crandon Park / Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Recreation Area, The Barnacle, Villa Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami Museum of Science, Venetian Pool, Fairchild Tropical Gardens, Matheson Hammock County Park, Parrot Jungle, Miami Metro Zoo, and Biscayne National Park."
