No. 8 Miami (MIA)

9 of 17

There’s no free Wi-Fi and not one kids’ zone, and yet Miami International Airport cracked the top 10 by sheer virtue of its easy access—from baggage claim to the beach in 30 minutes—and its more than 200 shops and restaurants, from Nathan’s Hot Dogs to Ron Jon Surf Wear. A few other factors: Casey, MIA’s Canine Ambassador, a four-year-old golden lab that hangs out for two hours (Mondays and Thursdays) in the main terminal with her handler, and the speedy Concourse D Skytrain, which services 60 gates on a mile-long track.
