I am looking for some advice from locals... I'll be road tripping Florida for 2 weeks with my husband and 2 kids (5 and 7) from The Netherlands. We'll arrive in Miami Friday evening (April 27th), have Saturday and Sunday to spend in Miami and then we'll head to the Keys, Everglades, Orlando and Cape Canaveral. So what to do in the 2 days? We'll be tired and jetlaged, waking early and going to bed early... Kids will want to build a sandcastle but I want to see Miami's typical neighbourhoods...
We'll have a rental car (mustang convertible - hopefully!) and an apartment near little Havana.
- Would it be fun touring around the city in the car? In Europe I would not dream of bringing a car to the city centre, but in America… ? (Sorry, first time holiday in USA)
- Will the shops be open on Sunday? Are there some neighbourhoods that are better to worse to visit on Sunday?
- Is a boat tour a good idea? (I saw the Duck tour but worry it won’t be fun for my kids who don’t speak English)
Thank you for your advice!
