A family-friendly paradise
Located just outside of Miami in the sunny city of Aventura, Florida, Turnberry Isle Miami’s 300-acre property is a tropical getaway for the whole family. The grounds of the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended 408-room resort are lush and manicured, integrating the tropical flora into both the design and in name (buildings are all named after tropical flowers). Definitely amble through the chef’s herb garden or jog the three-mile course surrounding the resort to appreciate the area’s rich beauty.
Offering two 18-hole PGA Championship golf courses plus a driving range, the resort is great for those who enjoy hitting the fairways. But if golf isn’t your idea of fun at all, you’ll likely delight in the four clay tennis courts, or maybe you’ll want to exercise in the gorgeous 25,000 square-foot spa and fitness complex that even boasts a spinning studio and Spa Café. Come evening, Bourbon Steak offers chops and cocktails in a contemporary setting, or for something more low-key, Cascata Grill serves continental cuisine in a laid-back environment.
Children will also find plenty of ways to amuse themselves as well. In addition to its kids' club and its private beach club a short shuttle bus ride away, Turnberry Isle Miami features a truly unique swimming pool with a 1,600-foot lazy river and a 180-foot water slide.
