Best Things to Do in Florida with Kids

When our little California family got invited to a friend’s wedding in Key Largo, we hesitated to RSVP. Our daughter was just 15 months old, and though we typically jump at any chance for a vacation, we didn’t know whether we could justify cross-country flights with enough things to do that would keep our child—and us—happy to be away from home.

We needn’t have worried. Say what you will about Florida, but it can be heaven for little ones. We checked our car seat with our luggage, rented a safe sedan, and set off on a road trip that started in Key Largo and meandered thereafter to all of the state’s attractions and towns that we thought would capture our toddler’s heart.

If you’re thinking of taking your young child to Florida, feel free to copy our itinerary, which, I can assure you, will create sheer joy for your child, memories that’ll last your family a lifetime, and even a little parental pampering.
