A:This beach-fringed 1,000-acre natural playland where the Oleta River meets Biscayne Bay is actually in North Miami, but still falls within the Miami metro area. During the day you can kayak, hike, fish, laze on the beach, or pedal on its 10 miles of bike paths. At night, stay in one of its 14 primitive one-room cabins.
