Oleta River State Park

These trails, built on flat land, are full of technical challenges.

Reviewed By MarPelletier - Montreal, Canada

Quiet beach with washrooms , picnic benches and bbq , ready for large or small groups this quite beach is sheltered from winds so when the seaside is too windy ( especially for children ) this is a great beach !

They also have kilometres of wilderness bike trails that are quite fun with bridges and twist and turns very exiting .

You can also rent kayaks and paddle the many little rivers within the park ,

A very interesting place for the whole family , 1 car fee 6$ , a bargain ....

The bigger the mall becomes the colder it gets. I remember when it was smaller, but with such variety to offer! Bookstore, toy store, Dappy, Hallmark, Sharper image...And Christmas? It was a Christmas wonderland...the train for the kids, the huge tree. Little by little the took everything away, to the point that last year there wasn't a single Christmas tree in the Mall. The only Christmas touch was Santa, but the rest of the mall? Nothing.

Now they don't even have a food court. With the closing of Sbarros, people have no choilce but to go to a sit down restaurant. I have no ideas what kind of clientele you are trying to attract with these changes, but it seems you are trying to drive the average costumer and families away/ I miss the mall the way it was just a few years ago.

Haulover Beach Park

Nestled between the Intercoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean, this scenic park boasts white sandy beaches, open ocean surf and sweeping dunes.

Reviewed By 1Jaybee1 - Newport News, Virginia

Parking was $7. This was my first time at a nude beach and even though I knew what to expect, it was still shocking to see a LOT of naked people. The beach is gorgeous. There is a bathroom/rinse off place right before you get to the beach. I didn't see anyone selling anything so it's best to be prepared and bring your food/drink.

Beautiful beach, not crowded at all. Lovely walking paths and a separate bike lane that goes for miles. Truly lovely. Heavy surf though and many many Portuguese Man of Wars and sone jellyfish. The PMOW are blue puffy things that look like baggies with long tentacles but they have a ferocious sting so beware!

Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park

Reviewed By MrMiamiExplorer - Miami, Florida

In my opinion Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park is one of the best kept secrets in North Miami. No other park in the area more resembles a tropical rainforest. Air potato vines, though an invasive exotic plant hang everywhere giving it a jungle appearance. There are nature trails that go through the lush foliage. This park has the largest concentration of wildlife I have seen anywhere in the area. On just one hike this afternoon I saw a raccoon, gray squirrels, white ibis, cardinals, green and spiny iguanas, ameiva lizards, brown & bark anole lizards, banana spiders, and zebra butterflies. Banana spiders especially had webs everywhere. There is also a barn with horses. Admission and parking are free and I will definitely keep returning.
