Below are just some of the most popular attractions located near your hotel in Miami.

Everglades National Park
This is a U.S. National Park in South Florida that protects 20 percent of the original Everglades. It is the largest tropical wilderness in the United States and is visited by approximately one million people each year.

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden has over 45,000 members and 1,200 volunteers, and it serves as a museum, laboratory, learning center and conservation research facility, but its main role is the preservation of biodiversity.

Many projects have been conducted at the park, which has become a major tourist attraction in South Florida. Monkey Jungle has about 400 primates of 30 different species. Visitors walk through a series of tunnel cages, since its tagline is "Where the humans are caged and the monkeys run wild".

Venetian Pool
This popular attraction is a historic U.S. public swimming pool located in Coral Gables, Florida. Completed in 1924, it was designed by Phineas Paist with Denman Fink. This pool occupies a shallow quarry displacing about 820,000 gallons of fresh water daily from artesian wells, making it the largest freshwater pool in the continental United States. The pool features a grotto, where natural water-filled caves stretch back several feet into the hillside. There is a sandy sunning area for sunbathers and also a cafe.

Coral Castle
This popular tourist attraction is a stone structure created by the Latvian eccentric Edward Leedskalnin (1887–1951) north of Homestead in Miami-Dade County. It showcases numerous megalithic stones (mostly limestone formed from coral). Coral Castle is known for legends surrounding its creation that claim it was built single-handedly by Leedskalnin using reverse magnetism and supernatural abilities when he moved and carved numerous stones weighing several tons.

This luxurious estate, now named the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, is the former villa of businessman James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune, on Biscayne Bay in the present day Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida. The early 20th century Vizcaya estate includes extensive Italian Renaissance gardens, native woodland landscape, and a historic village outbuildings compound.

Booking Your Hotel in Kendall: Top 10 Suggestions

When it comes to booking your hotel in Kendall, there are certain things you should consider. Understanding how hotel reservations work is an important key to helping you get the most from your travel accommodations. Here are the top 10 suggestions when booking your Kendall hotel.

1. Make Your Reservation Directly with the Hotel
It’s always best to contact the hotel directly. They may have discounted rates or special packages that you have not seen in advertisements.

2. Ask for Special Accommodations
If you want a room on a certain floor, near the pool, or in a quieter area of the hotel, make sure you request this ahead of time. Your hotel will have a better chance of arranging this for you if they know in advance.

3. Get a Confirmation Number
It’s good to have a confirmation number if there are any mix-ups when you arrive to check in at your hotel in Kendall. If you booked online, bring a printout of that reservation with you.

4. Know When to Book
You will find the least expensive rates for a Kendall hotel during the low-season summer months, and weekdays are usually cheaper than weekends. In the peak season, you may find small price breaks by traveling midweek rather than on the weekend.

5. Request a Rollaway or Crib at the Time You Reserve
This is important to do ahead of time if you need one. Otherwise, if the hotel is full, they may not be able to provide an extra bed or crib. These items may also not be allowed in smaller rooms due to fire codes.

6. Find Out the Check-in and Check-out Times
If for some reason your plans need an earlier arrival or later departure, you should set this up ahead of time. The hotel will either be able to accommodate your travel plans or offer you a half-day rate for the extra time, but they do need to know this ahead of time in order to set it up for you.

7. Arrange Your Transportation in Advance
Make sure you plan your trip from the airport to your Kendall hotel in advance. Cabs can be very expensive during South Florida’s peak season, so do some research on options for public transportation.

8. Check the Weather
South Florida has a rainy season from summer to early fall, so make sure you check the predicted weather conditions before planning your vacation.

9. Sign Up for a Rewards Program 
You may be able to do this when you book your room. Sign-up is usually free and you may be immediately entitled to all the various perks and discounts that membership offers.

10. Check for Affiliation and Other Discounts
You may qualify for additional hotel discounts simply by belonging to an association or organization. AARP and AAA are just some of the many examples.
