Biscayne with my 9 year old

This is a lovely spot for a walk or a picnic. We weren't able to get on the boat ride, which was sold out - you have to make reservations at least 2-3 weeks in advance. In fact... read more

A good place for a family outing by the water, with picnic tables and a good view of Miami in the distance.

I did get a boat tour easily without advance reservations, but I also came in December before everyone got off for Christmas and New Years. I'm guessing that if it is near a big holiday or when kids have school off, you should definitely make reservations. I was just glad they were having a tour on the Thursday I came.... More

This National Park was highly recommended to us, but didn't have a whole lot. It would be nice if they expanded some of the land-based and cold-weather activities. There is a boardwalk where you can walk out through some mangroves, mostly where people go fishing. Fair amount of litter unfortunately, although the rangers were trying to pick it up. Some... More

This is a lovely spot for a walk or a picnic. We weren't able to get on the boat ride, which was sold out - you have to make reservations at least 2-3 weeks in advance. In fact, if there is anything you are thinking of doing in the area, make a reservation in advance. However, we enjoyed the Visitors... More

This park offers many options for exploration, all via boat. The NPS offers a guided boat tour. We utilized a concessionaire and were able to explore one of the keys across the bay. We didn't see much wildlife but the location is breathtaking. Adams Key is a must-visit.

Went here on a slightly windy day, so our family couldn't rent the kayaks with younger kids. Kayaks were only $20 an hour. Visitor center was nice, but as the website says, there's only a mile or so of trails so not much to do land-wise. The boat tours were all booked, so we left for Homestead Bay Park right... More

Wish we had planned more time here but we didn't plan ahead at all. Visited Coral Castle and, as we began the trip back to Doral, my husband remembered there was a National Park nearby. So we drove about 15 minutes out of our way to see it. How beautiful! We walked through the visitors center, then strolled the waterfront.... More

This was an unexpected pleasure to find. No charge to get in. I was there for the sailing excursion, but found the park uncrowded, good parking. I even saw several RV's parked there, and if I had a RV, I would happily stay there. The visitor center was informative, well laid out, had some easy walking trails, kayak rentals were... More

We visited over the Christmas break. It gets quite busy. There is not Park entrance gate, so no entrance fee. The area here is set up nicely. If you have a Passport book you can get it stamped, but be warned and ready. They don't have any stickers for the book. NP haven't got one for Biscayne NP, what are... More

I really loved this because I was very fascinated by the eco system. When you get to the park, go to the ranger station. There is a great video which will walk you through the various fragile systems which keep everything going. The keys themselves are unique in that they are basically an exposed reef. The mangroves start the chain... More
