Commemorate your one-of-a-kind romance as you peruse the charming avenues of Kendall, a sprawling oasis perfect for a love-filled rendezvous, hailed as one of Miami's "strongholds of suburbia!"

An unincorporated Miami-Dade community 10 miles southwest of Miami, along US1, Kendall is a comfortable suburb far enough from the hubbub of the Metro to offer a cheaper way of living, cleaner air, a beautiful setting, and plenty of space for calm and serenity.

Much like most suburbs, you may find Kendall among the least favored areas to put on your travel bucket lists-- or so you thought!

Over the years, this Kendall has evolved into a noteworthy Miami destination, earning a place on the list of South Florida's most treasured hidden gems-- and on the bucket lists of couples looking to explore Miami's charming suburbs for a romantic escapade filled with nature, shopping, exquisite dining, and entertainment, sans the throngs of crowd!

Here are the top five date spots in Kendall.

1) Demolish a stack of morning pancakes at The Original Pancake House 

11510 SW 72nd St, Miami, FL 33183

More often than not, the best way to your partner's heart (man or woman!) is through the stomach — or, in this case, a Classic American breakfast spread, and there's no better place to get it than at The Original Pancake House, one of Kendall's top breakfast spots!

Offering signature pancakes in a plethora of varieties and other American breakfast classics, The Original Pancake House is best described as the "Disneyland" of breakfast lovers — and rightfully so!

Think Apple Pancakes, Buttermilk Pancakes, and Bacon Pancakes, among other variants, alongside crepes, omelets, breakfast meats, and even cereals — there will be no breakfast fave left unturned!

While not particularly Instagrammable or romantic per se, your date will immediately fall in love with The Original Pancake House after a bite of that delicious stack of pancakes — and I'm pretty sure that will be more than enough to consider this as a breakfast date spot to visit in Kendall!

2) Surround yourself with wildlife and nature at Zoo Miami 

12400 SW 152nd St, Miami, FL 33177

Contrary to popular belief, visiting a zoo isn't just meant for kids and kids at heart.

In fact, it can be a fun way to keep the date interesting, especially if you're sharing the day with an adventurer, nature fanatic, or animal lover! 

So, if you're looking for one to explore with your partner, look to Zoo Miami, a world-renowned 750-acre facility known as the largest zoo in Florida, located in the heart of Kendall!

Claiming the "bragging rights" as the only subtropical zoo in the continental United States, Zoo Miami takes advantage of Magic City's climate to provide massive open-air exhibits re-creating animal habitats from the Everglades to the Amazon, Africa, Australia, and Asia!

Here, you'll find more than 2,500 amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals, including koalas, tigers (yes, even rare White Bengal Tigers!), and elephants, in large open-air exhibits — complete with jungles, forest, and trails surrounded by moats!

Aside from the different animal varieties, Zoo Miami has a world-class aviary, more than 1,000 species of trees, palms, and plants, and is home to the Gold Coast Railroad Museum, which features a collection of historic railroad cars and memorabilia!

With so many nooks and crannies to explore, you'll have an excuse to spend the rest of your day with your darling — a plus if you don't want the date to end!

3) Wander scenic trails at Kendall Indian Hammocks Park

11395 SW 79th St, Miami, FL 33173

Are you ready to explore romantic scenic trails and get an inch closer to nature with your beloved by your side?

One thing about the suburbs is you're bound to get your fill of parks and green spaces, and in Kendall, it doesn't get any better than Kendall Indian Hammock Park, a significant tropical hardwood hammock in the heart of Greater Miami!

Boasting equal parts of a fun-filled family destination and revered natural habitat, the Kendall Indian Hammocks Park boasts a hardwood hammock and a surrounding 32-acre nature preserve alongside premium recreational facilities, including three lighted softball fields, a grassy soccer area, 36 holes of disc golf, and a 14,000-square-foot skate park inspired by the iconic Love Park in Philadelphia and the Embarcadero in San Francisco. 

Invite your date to go birdwatching, wander down scenic trails, or explore the unknowns of nature!

After all that walking, you can set up a romantic picnic at any of Kendall Indian Hammocks Park's five covered picnic shelters or at the one live oak-canopied picnic deck, where you can share intimate moments while observing Mother Nature's glorious beauty!

4) Dance around the ice at Kendall Ice Arena

10355 Hammocks Blvd, Miami, FL 33196

Spending the day under the sun can bring on serious sweat, so cool down by the ice rink and enjoy a date night at Kendall Ice Arena, Miami-Dade County's ONLY ice sports center and one of Kendall's most romantic date spots!

Pop on some ice skates and test your balance as you sprawl through this famous ice skating rink — at Kendall Ice Arena, you can trade the humidity for a cold glide through the ice while you keep warm under each other's embrace!

If you go on a weekend, you'll have a live DJ playing some tunes in the background, so request your favorite ballad and dance to sweet music as you skate around the rink side by side!

Now, you won't have to think of an excuse to keep your date close throughout the night!

5) Enjoy food, romance, and everything in between at Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant & Bar 

11715 Sherry Ln, Miami, FL 33183

Earning a second date can be a feat, especially if you're taking out someone hard to impress.

To help you with your chances, you'll need the ULTIMATE spot to cap off a fun day around Kendall, and I know just the place! 

Revel in the romance and peace of the countryside alongside enchanting warm wood, rustic bricks, and copper accents outlining Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant & Bar, a top-ranking Miami restaurant promising maximum flavor, attentive customer service, and unique ambiance that makes every dining experience sensational and memorable!

Now at its new location in The Palms at Town & Country, Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant & Bar transports you to a culinary trip to Wine Country with its variety of classic and not-so-classic American fare paired with an ambiance reminiscent of Napa Valley!

We're talking about an intimate spread of delicious dishes like slow-roasted pork, 24-hour braised short ribs, cowgirl bone-in ribeye, refreshing sides, and salads, complete with a long list of famous wines and cocktails.

Chances are, after this unforgettable dinner date, she'll ask you when you'll take her out next!
