Great beach, fun playgrounds by the Johnson Street Parking House, entertainment at night, and great places to eat on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk.

Beautiful stretch of white sand beaches, fun playground, basketball court, bbq grills and picnic tables.

Visiting Crandon Beach Park in Key Biscayne, is like going on vacation for the day. The 2 mile beach is beautiful, there are picnic tables and bbq grills, so make sure to bring your picnic baskets. While you are there, don't forget to climb to the top of the Cape Florida lighthouse....it's free!

I recommend going during the week if possible, or start out early. Once lunch time hits, the ingoing traffic will be high, and Sundays can be very busy.
