Arrow Cruising out of Miami... Miami tours/sightseeing info requests

For those of you that have cruised out of Miami, and spent time in the city prior, what were some of your favorite things to do (considering we will have toddlers in tow)?

Anyone spent some time on South Beach? We're not the "drive by people's houses" type folks. I didn't notice if DCL has pre or post cruise activities in Miami. TIA

We have a return flight at 8:05pm the day we disembark and I posted a similiarquestion on a different cruise site and got a variety of answers, but we got a great suggestion of renting a car and going to the zoo. Apparently Miami has one of the best zoos in the country and looking at the website it does look really nice. The best part is the cost for adults was only $16 and free parking

This website has some interesting suggestions: http://www.cruisemiami.org/ under "pre and post cruise activities"

When I visited Miami (without a cruise though), the thing I enjoyed most was the Art Deco walking tour at South Beach: http://www.mdpl.org/tours/guided-walking-tours/ However, it certainly is more of an adult oriented activity.
