Went with my kids to this park, which I found when I google "pet friendly" parks. It's very clean and quiet. It's right on the bay so the views were amazing. They supply grills to do bbq's and they have bathrooms on the premises. People also do fishing there. canoeing as well and snorkeling. The parking is free and just... More

Enjoy an experience few others chose to appreciate -- the peace and solitude of a tropical sunrise at Biscayne National Park. Gates to Dante Fascell Visitor Center officially open at 7:00 AM. That’s the same time the winter sun first peaks over the horizon above distant Elliott Key. The parking lot at the Visitor Center is virtually empty at that... More

A beautiful spot on Biscayne Bay. Make sure you view a couple of the videos available to get a great history of the area. Most of this park is underwater. It is amazing to consider the foresight some people have on preserving our culture and properties.

If you are in Homestead, don't miss this park. There is a boardwalk along the shoreline that has excellent views of the mangrove islands in Biscayne Bay where you can stretch your legs and enjoy the sea view and breeze

A great little NP that provides a good understanding of the fragile eco-system of South Florida. The canoe rentals were closed so that was a bummer. But the walkway is a great way to see things up close. Good sea breeze. Nice small museum to learn about the NP. Good number of movies to see. Not much to do if... More

We stopped by here for an hour or so on our way to the keys. The Rangers were nice and had some Jr Ranger programs going on. There are lot of benches with views of the water and a boardwalk area to walk on. There is a nice small visitor center display area with some neat stuff. Most of the... More

Bay Breeze is great and nice place to rent water equipment. A bit of a drive out in the middle of nowhere but worth it once you reach your point.

It's free. It was a nice boardwalk with lots of benches all with water views. If I lived near here I'd enjoy the quietness, but to really get this park you need to boat, fish, or dive because 95% of it is under water. Wish I knew how to dive.

While there is little to do on land, you are supposed to be able to take boat tours or rent kayaks, snorkel or dive there. However, be sure to call in advance to check if they actually run these programs as they were closed down for the foreseeable time when we visited and only offered a ranger tour of the... More
