Founded as a sanctuary for flowers, birds, and their admirers, Pinecrest Gardens has flourished into a family-friendly retreat that entertains visitors with horticultural exhibits and artistic events in a scenic setting. Spanning 4.3 acres of forested wetland, the gardens harbor more than 1,000 rare and exotic plants, including a 100-year-old coco plum tree, orchids, and a banyan tree that spreads across three-fourths of an acre. Waterways full of fish snake through these plants, their inhabitants impatiently pursing their lips at visitors for handfuls of food.
Pinecrest Gardens offers other entertainment opportunities for youngsters, who can splash around in the water playground, spot wildlife at Swan Lake, or play with potbellied pigs at the petting zoo. In addition, the 500-seat outdoor Banyan Bowl offers concertgoers pristine acoustics and cool evening breezes along with complimentary views of the stars.

White cabanas. Bamboo gazebos. Sparking waterfalls. At Solare Garden, guests enjoy tropical environs without boarding a commercial plane or commandeering a hovercraft caught in the trade winds. Each of its eight event spaces includes amenities for a large group and flaunts a slightly different tropical aesthetic. Solare Isle, an outdoor space, includes sanded areas and lush landscaping, whereas the covered Tiki Pavilion features an adjacent bar and light-up waterfall. But whether guests flock to the Isle's sandy stretches or the Coliseum's glowing nightclub dance floor, there's ample space for them to enjoy a party. Receptions, corporate gatherings, and weddings are all warmly welcomed by the Solare staff.
The Event Depot's team will do anything to take a party to the next level—they'll even build a snow-covered mountain in the host's backyard. Their snow services transform pockets of Miami into winter wonderlands, converting yards into snowy peaks for sledding or building full-fledged ice-skating arenas.
They also furnish parties with less frosty accessories. Kids frolic in bounce houses and inflatables, and waterslides and dunk tanks keep parties wet and wild. Hosts can even rent the company's indoor and outdoor party venues, saving them the hassle of post-party clean-up and dropping leftover balloon animals off at the pound.
Inside Laserland & Adventure, lasers pierce through clouds of fog and past glowing black-lit murals. Their targets: participants navigating the labyrinthine 3,000-square-foot arena's multiple levels during standard games of tag, as well as variations that incorporate special power-ups.
But as massive as it is, Laserland's laser tag arena is only a fourth of the entire 12,000-square-foot fun center. Upbeat tunes accompany the bleeps and blips of classic games from the on-site arcade before players head to the coffee shop to recharge with healthy snacks.
Futbox Futsal Center’s three indoor fields, marked and equipped to FIFA regulations, sprawl across the facilities 25,000 square feet. Guests trample the artificial grass during soccer academies, birthday parties, or open-play hours, sprinting through the air-conditioned center while noting their score on the electronic scoreboards. In addition to the soccer and futsal capabilities, the center also invites guests for Zumba fitness classes.
