Looking for a fun place to go with family this Thanksgiving weekend? Located just north of the Florida Keys in the heart of Homestead is Homestead Bayfront Park. The park is a great spot to launch your boat. There are about 10 launch areas. From here, other Florida keys like Old Rhodes, Totten, Elliott and Sands Keys are just in a short distance.
Families or groups of friends would truly enjoy the fun activities you can do here. Aside from boating, you can also go for bird-watching, fishing, wind-surfing, or kayaking. You will see a lot of aquatic wildlife when you’re kayaking around. Or you can just stroll with the kids or have a picnic with the family.
This waterfront park has a beach in a beautiful tropical setting with natural atoll pools and beach. It has been newly refurbished. It’s now complete with an onsite restaurant that overlooks the Biscayne Bay. The La Playa Grill is in a 6,000 sq ft building. It’s a restaurant and concession area with a screened-in dining space and walk-around balcony from which you can soak in the waterfront views and enjoy the tropical breeze. It serves American Seafood and Mexican dishes.
From the restaurant, you can also see the sand volleyball court and a kids’ playground. Down by the water are also six new “funbrella” canopies, picnic tables that provide shade. A few feet from the volleyball court, kids can dig for dinosaur bones and fossils in the new “Dino Diggables Sandbox”.
The newly renovated park also now has new landscape, new paths, grilling areas and those same old secret fishing spots are still there along with the Herbert Hoover Marina. The park also offers boat shuttles that would take visitors to Elliott Key, a pretty island popular with campers and day trippers which is also a part of Biscayne National Park.
