When the mercury starts rising in your thermometer, there’s only one surefire way to beat the heat: you’re going to have to take a dip.
If you don’t have a pool or are just looking for a more exciting way to cool off, these three Miami, FL, area water parks are always nearby.
Castaway Island | Connect on Facebook
One of the great things about Castaway Island is that it’s made for both the young and old alike. The park is literally split into two different water playgrounds.
The first is for smaller children, and features slides and equipment to climb on. The second park was made for older kids, with massive water buckets, more thrilling slides, and bigger equipment.
Adults, meanwhile, may enjoy the attached marina, which features kayak, canoe, and paddleboat rentals, as well as much more.
Grapeland Water Park | Connect on Facebook
When you visit Grapeland Water Park, you’ll have your choice of a more relaxing, easygoing day, or something far more active.
See, Grapeland has numerous pools by which one could sit and sun themselves for hours. However, there’s four different attractions filled with play equipment, water slides, water cannons, and more.
Each play area is designated by a specific height requirement, so you’ll know exactly where your little ones belong throughout the day.
Miami Watersports Complex | Connect on Facebook
Miami Watersports Complex isn’t like other water parks on this list. You won’t find any slides or lazy rivers here. Instead, you’ll find a wakeboarding wonderland, complete with ramps, rails, and a fully-stocked pro shop.
If you’ve never gone wakeboarding before but have been dying to try (trust us, the adrenaline rush makes it worth it!), this is the place to do it.
A few different class levels are available, for small children and older, advanced students both. You can even take boating lessons, if you’d like to learn how to operate one for yourself!
