We love taking the grandkids to Florida as much as possible especially to Disney. But we also enjoy the Miami area from time to time! The Miami Children’s Museum is one of our favorites because… well look at it! There are tons of educational activities for kids and it’s such a hands on museum. Great post for those traveling or moving to the area! Thanks for sharing.
