Welcome to Miami: A Camper Trip Through Florida

On the fifth day of our camper trip through Florida, we arrive in the vibrant city of Miami. After a 3-hour drive, we reach our camping site, only to find the beach and pool closed due to the scorching heat. We decide to move on, and fortunately, we find the child-friendly Miami Everglades RV Resort just 10 minutes away. It’s a perfect base for our Miami adventures, being just a 45-minute drive from the city center.

Experiencing Sun, Sea, and Waves at South Beach

Our first day in Miami takes us to the iconic South Beach. Despite a minor hiccup with our car rental, we manage to park our camper just two blocks away from the beach. South Beach, with its white sand, beautiful blue sea, and well-known lifeguard stations, is just as I remembered from my visit 18 years ago. After soaking up the sun and enjoying the view, we explore the “art deco route” and treat ourselves to a refreshing ice cream.

Exploring Graffiti Art at Wynwood

Our next stop is downtown Miami, specifically the Wynwood district. Known for its street art, Wynwood is home to one of the largest street art projects ever, started by Tony Goldman in 2009. The district is filled with stunning murals on the walls of abandoned warehouses, ranging from psychedelic spectacles to cartoons and images of people and animals. It’s a must-visit if you’re in Miami, and don’t forget to try the tapas-like dishes at the local restaurants.

Chilling at Key Biscayne

After our artistic adventures in Wynwood, we head to Key Biscayne, an island just off the coast of Miami. With its calm sea and shallow waters, it’s perfect for kids. We spend our day at Crandon Park Beach, enjoying the warm white sands and the fantastic view of Miami. Despite getting stuck in traffic on our way back to the camping site, we’re in high spirits, looking forward to the next leg of our camper trip through Florida to the Florida Keys.
