The Miami Seaquarium, 4400 Rickenbacker Causeway; Key Biscayne; 305.361.5705
Your little niece or nephew will be so distracted by the whales, dolphins, manatees, and sea turtles, they totally won’t know the noises Flipper is making are Dolphin for, “If I do one more flip through a flaming hoop for week-old mackerel, I’m eating this trainer.”
Venetian Pool, 2701 De Soto Blvd; Coral Gables; 305.460.5306
Your niece or nephew can contribute to our civic water supply while “swimming” under waterfalls and grottos in the 830,000-gallon, aquifer-fed pools, while you relax in the shade and sis shows off that black one-piece she bought right after the kid was born.
THE GUESTS: YOUR GRANDPARENTS
Because they can only go condo-shopping in Boca for so long, here’s some fun stuff for you to do with Grams and Gramps:
The Original Miami Tour, 429 Lenox Avenue; Miami Beach; 305.260.6855
The Miami City Tour is educational, comprehensive, and occasionally funny, but it’s also 100% AIR-CONDITIONED, and runs through GPS-activated headsets so grandpa won’t have to awkwardly turn to the German couple next to you and say, “Did he say we were going to get Floral Bagels? What’s a Floral Bagel?”
