Ah, the South Florida winter. Our favorite time of the year. An enchanted few months of beautiful weather, while our northern neighbors make due with snow, sleet, and ice. Nothing beats it.
Some of the best parts of experiencing Miami in the winter (besides lounging on the beach in the middle of January!) are all the unique family events. Miami is where you want to be – from the theatre to the internationally renowned Miami Zoo and beyond – during the winter.
Check out the Top 4 Miami winter events for families below and don’t hesitate to contact us today to learn more about relocating to the Magic City!
Brickell City Center Farmer’s Market
There are a lot of reasons that Brickell is Miami’s hottest neighborhood. These range from the truly world class dining to the luxury real estate to our personal favorite: the Brickell City Center Farmer’s Market.
Every Saturday from 10am to 3pm, Brickell City Center transforms from an upscale shopping experience to a family friendly farmer’s market. Who knew you could get organic veggies, farm to table meats, and so much more in the heart of Miami! Your kids are guaranteed to find something they like and you’re guaranteed to have a great time browsing the extensive selection of goodies.

Adrienne Arsht Centers for the Performing Arts
New York City may think they have a monopoly on culture, but the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts begs to differ. Miami’s own cultural gem, nestled in the heart of Miami’s downtown, the Arsht Center is an international leader for innovative theatre and music performances.
Their winter calendar is absolutely jam packed with acts you don’t want to miss, but what about your children? They probably don’t want to sit through Jon Batiste and Stay Human. Well they’re in luck.
The Arsht Center has a lot of family friendly offerings, including Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in Concert, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of The Goddesses, and, best of all, Family Fest. Check them out for a great family-friendly winter in Miami!
We couldn’t write a list of Miami’s best winter attractions and not include the Miami Zoo. Not only are they world famous, but every holiday season they bring out the holiday cheer with a fun series called Zoo Lights. Your children are sure to love the 500,000+ animal shaped lights strung around the zoo, the Snowman’s riverboat ride, hot chocolate and cookies, and a visit with Santa himself.
Zoo Lights takes place every night over the course of December (except for Christmas Eve and Christmas) between 7 and 10pm. You can learn more at the Miami Zoo events page.
Biscayne Nature Center
The Biscayne Nature Center, located inside Crandon Park, boasts one of South Florida’s most beautiful slices of nature. Their ecologically minded staff offers guests beach walks, hammock hikes, interactive marine adventures, and more.
The Biscayne Nature Center also offers special events and an art gallery, as if the beautiful Florida wetlands weren’t enough! This is a one-of-a-kind experience your entire family will love.
