Within sight of downtown Miami yet worlds away, Biscayne National Park protects a rare combination of aquamarine waters, emerald islands and fish-bejeweled coral reefs. Here, too, is evidence of human history spanning centuries, from pirates and shipwrecks to pineapple farmers and presidents. Outdoor enthusiasts can canoe through mangrove forests, snorkel among 500 species of reef fish, camp, watch wildlife or simply relax in a rocking chair gazing out over the bay. A road built during the 1960s, now the park’s lone hiking trail, passes through a tropical hardwood forest. Take kids virtual diving round Biscayne wreck sites right now.
