Aside from being home to one of the best (and safest) beaches in the county, Crandon Park boasts a family amusement center complete with a restored vintage carousel, a roller rink (bring your own skates) and a nature center with programs that explore the seagrass and the fossilized mangrove reef. Best of all are the resident iguanas and unusual reptiles. For $20 an hour, you can rent a family-sized bike built for two pedallers and two strapped-in seats up front for the little ones.
