Between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour, Surfside has long attracted families for its blend of laidback beach town and uptown luxury. Visitors and locals alike enjoy tennis, playgrounds, dog parks, a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a children’s plunge slide, and an outdoor café. The oceanfront Community Center offers fitness classes ranging from Aqua Zumba to Beach Yoga. Surfside also hosts a number of family-friendly events throughout the year. Third Thursdays is a downtown street festival that runs from February through April on the third Thursday of each month. Each event includes live music, food trucks, and special deals from participating restaurants and stores. Whenever you visit, spacious accommodations with in-room kitchenettes (case in point: the brand-new Residence Inn) make it easier to stay with little ones and cook for added convenience.
