      Miami beach with 3 and 1 year old

      by trent_connor Online Now Aug 14, 2016 at 8:59 AM

      Hi, is miami beach family friendly? We have a 3 year old and 1 year old. So that means restaurants with stroller, highchair etc for breakfast lunch and dinner. I'm not from America and from my research it doesn't seem to be overly family friendly. Also any advice on things to do. We will be travelling in march so I don't think it's beach season for the kids to be swimming

    • Moving to Miami from Cincinnati, Ohio

      by GabrielaZ Online Now Jul 21, 2016 at 11:36 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I am originally from Lima, Peru and have been living in Cincinnati for almost 15 years. I am currently 24, and I speak Spanish and English (so moving to Miami wouldn't be a problem in that category). I currently have an associate's degree in Civil Engineering and will be graduating from UC next spring with a Bachelors of Science in Architecture. My goal is to move to Miami right after graduation but I'm a little concerned about finding a job in my career? I frequently visit Miami at least once a year every year and I absolutely love it! I love the culture, the food, the weather and the beach! How easy or how difficult would it be for me? What do you guys suggest that I do before I move down there? It would be me, my boyfriend and our two german shepherds moving down :)

      by hughese87 Online Now Feb 12, 2016 at 1:52 AM

      Hi my friend and I are looking to come to Miami next November for a week of some winter sun and escape Englands cold weather.
      We are looking to find out what part of Miami is the best place to stay out of Miami Beach or South Beach? We enjoy nightlife but not really into the clubbing scene, we like cocktail bars and pubs with atmosphere.
      We are not really looking for tourist attractions but do enjoy a day out on a boat catching some rays.
      Any information would be much appreciated.

      Each time we went to South Beach we went to Jerry's Famous Delly for breakfast because it was one of the restaurants which were open 24/24 and we awoke very soon on the morning.
      It seems to be now closed.
      Is it true ? When it will be reopened ?

      I'm going to Miami for a weekend in February. I want some of all of it...plan to see some sites, go to the beach and experience some nightlife. Would like to stay somewhere reasonably priced and have been looking at hotels and airbnb places. Considering these things what area do you recommend?

      Should I rent a car? That plays a factor into the location as well. Thanks!
