A Day at the Beach

If you’re already planning to spend a day at the beach with your mom, then why not take her parasailing? It's a great way to take in the sights while giving you a thrilling sense of adventure along the way. Companies such as South Beach Parasail, Miami Beach Ocean Watersports, and Miami Parasail are prime options for a parasailing expedition near the coast. If you’re not too fond of soaring 50-stories high behind a speedboat, you can always rent out a few jet skis and cruise through Miami’s coastal neighborhoods.
