With the weather heating up and the kids out of school, summer is prime time to make new family memories. But let’s face it, it’s hard to keep the little ones entertained inside a museum and you can only take so many theme park trips. Wynwood offers a fantastic alternative with its totally free outdoor art exhibit featuring the largest concentration of street art in the country, its delicious food offerings, and fun the entire family can appreciate.
Here are three top recommendations for an unforgettable family day in the Wynwood Arts District:
Home to the country’s largest concentration of street art, Wynwood’s unique murals are the perfect way to expose kids of all ages to art they will enjoy. The neighborhood’s signature colorful walls will keep any toddler’s attention and inspire your Instagram-obsessed teen. At the epicenter of the art decorated neighborhood is the Wynwood Walls, featuring a rotating lineup of world renowned artists and their creations. You can enjoy all the street art at your leisure, take a Wynwood Art Walk Tour of the Wynwood Walls or enjoy the street art and fantastic food at the same with Miami Culinary Tours.
Summer doesn’t have to mean only waterslides and roller coasters. Let the kids explore in Wynwood’s ultimate family entertainment center, FunDimension, with interactive attractions including an outdoor bungee dome, laser tag, 7D theater and spin zone. Parents can join the fun or relax at The Galley, the center’s restaurant and lounge which serves craft beer, wine and Wynwood’s own Panther Coffee.
After the kids have worked up an appetite, take them to enjoy diner staples at Wynwood Diner, right in the heart of Wynwood. Or cool down from a day of fun with a scoop of ice cream at Dasher & Crank or handcrafted paletas at Cielito Artisan Pops. Don’t leave without stopping by The Salty Donut for one of their award-winning treats. With flavors like maple bacon and Nutella, there’s sure to be a donut to satisfy each family member’s sweet tooth.
