South Beach Miami with kid

We're going to Miami for a long weekend with our 6 year old son. Staying at the Raleigh Hotel. Any suggestions for the best places to dine, shop or play near by?

I agree w/MiamiBeachMomma - Jungle Island is fun for a 6 yr. old, also the Miami Children's Museum would be fun if it's a rainy day and you are looking for something to do indoors.

The Everglades and an airboat ride, maybe, you wear earplugs, but if he doesn't like loud noises, I would skip that. We've gone on the airboats at Holiday Park here's a link:

Another nice way to see some of the Everglades (and a lot of alligators) is Shark Valley and take the tram ride. Our boys are teens now and we bike here, but did the tram when they were younger:

There is also:
Miami Metro Zoo
Monkey Jungle
Sawgrass Mills Mall (huge outlet Mall up in Broward County)
If you go to Sawgrass, they have a Rainforest Cafe (good for kids) & there is an indoor playground right in front of the cafe.
Also up in the Fort Lauderdale area on Sunrise Blvd. - the Swap Shop. Lots of vendors, kiddie rides, indoor and out. At night it's a drive in with several screens.

Have fun!
