Experience Miami’s many landmarks and family-friendly things to do

Miami is a sensory experience. Feel the sun on your face, taste the Cuban and Caribbean cuisine, smell the salty ocean air, and see the cultural landmarks like Wynwood Walls and Marlins Park. No matter what brings you to the economic and cultural heart of South Florida, there’s always plenty to do.

Traveling for work? Radisson RED Miami Airport is a shuttle ride away from the airport convention center, four miles from Wynwood Convention Center and 11 miles from Miami Beach Convention Center. After you’ve brought the bacon home, treat yourself to the nightlife on Calle Ocho in Little Havana. You can also test out that lucky rabbit’s foot at Magic City Casino, only two miles south of the hotel.

On a family vacay? Take the kids to Zoo Miami or Jungle Island to see the wildlife. If you’re a fun-in-the-sun type of family, make the short trip to South Beach along the Atlantic Ocean. Little ones also love the impressive Venetian Pool in Coral Gables. If the weather’s not cooperating, don’t sweat it. Between Bayside Marketplace and Dolphin Mall, there are plenty of indoor dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities to fill the whole day.
