In the exciting guidebook Miami for Families, Laura Albritton, mother and Miami resident, brings together all the essential details so you can easily explore Miami with kids and maximize family fun.

Dividing the metropolis into 8 neighborhood-focused chapters, Miami for Families rates activities and outings by their age-appropriateness. Each chapter highlights helpful textboxes on: deals, splurges, inside scoops, survival tips, rainy day activities, and where to buy necessities.
