Sharjah has an abundance of parks and gardens, all beautifully decorated and wonderfully manicured. You can spend the morning or head over right before sunset to get the weather and view in perfect condition. Get those steps in, enjoy the fresh air and walk n' talk with the family. Win-win!

Sharjah is a quick ride away not only from Dubai but also from Abu Dhabi, the capital city of UAE. In Dubai, you can take part in experiences ranging from buggy rides to a dhow dinner cruise, while in Abu Dhabi, you can sweat it out visiting the Mangrove Park and kayaking in the wild.
Be careful of the Arabian summer heat, and always carry an umbrella & some water to avoid getting a sunstroke. Safety first, always!
