Written by Maanasi

Miami is a vacation paradise with its pristine sandy beaches, thrilling adventure activities and never-ending shopping opportunities. While most people on Miami tours tend to spend time at South Beach and the Everglades, there are so many more things, such as dolphin encounters and walking tours, that can show you a side of Miami that visitors never get to see.

Here are some of the best Miami attractions besides the Everglades and South Beach that you should think of visiting and experiencing.

If you think this is another traditional zoo, you are quite wrong. The Miami Metro Zoo is home to a number of species from Africa, Australia and Asia. The animals here live in a natural habitat, completely cageless. Animals from the same geographical region are housed together. And, it is amazing to see how they live peacefully with one another. There are many opportunities to interact with these animals, such as feeding the giraffe. And, it is a great opportunity to learn something about these animals.

The Seaquarium in Miami is the place to enjoy fun and enjoyable marine shows involving lovable dolphins and hordes of other sea creatures. These shows are held throughout the year, but the schedules keep changing. It can be thrilling to see a killer whale or have an out-of-this-world experience watching a dolphin show. If your dolphin encounter doesn’t reap the desired results, don’t fret. You will be able to get close and personal with dolphins at the Seaquarium.

Miami is extremely child-friendly city. It has a lot to offer families with kids. So, if you have little ones who want to enjoy more than Art Deco building or beaches, take them to The Miami Children’s Museum. You will have a tough time dragging them out of it. The interactive exhibits and displays are not just educative, they also are fun. Make sure your kids get an opportunity to see Mt. MiChiMu and The Sea and Me exhibits.
