Take a quiet break from Miami's excitement in this tropical paradise. Fairchild Garden boasts an extensive collection of exotic plants spread across 83 acres. There are two self-guided tours designed for children four to ten: The Nature Notebook tour encourages kids to create drawings of the plants they see; the Adventure Pack takes them on a nature hunt. Both tours allow children to plant seeds in a small pot they can take home—a nice touch to an educational experience.
