  • Coconut Grove: Fun, tropical haven with a youthful spring to its step

    Find a fun, vibrant neighborhood located south of Downtown Miami called Coconut Grove, or simply “The Grove”. Founded in 1873, this popular hang for University students next door still brims with youthful energy. Home to artistic types since its beginning, natural inspiration is easy to come by in this historic neighborhood with banyan-shaded streets, peacocks strutting around your backyard and the Ocean beyond.

    Welcome to sightseer’s paradise…

    The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens are one of the top tourist destinations in Coconut Grove. These manicured grounds were built by agricultural industrialist, James Deering between 1914 and 1916. A National Historic Landmark and accredited museum, acres upon acres of landscaped greens flaunt French, Italian, Cuban and Floridian influences. A grand villa sits at the center of the estate, housing more than 70 rooms dedicated to the decorative arts.

    The Barnacle Historic State Park is another sprawling attraction. Avid sailor Ralph Middleton Munroe built ‘The Barnacle’ house in 1891. This historic home still stands intact on its original foundation and comes surrounded by a luxuriant park inclusive of a tropical hardwood hammock, museum with interpretive exhibits, picnicking facilities and replicas of Munroe’s two sailboats. It is also one of the best spots in Miami for bird watching.

    The Kampong is another botanical treasure located in the Grove. This former estate of botanical explorer Dr. David Fairchild houses some of the most exotic flora in the world. Dedicated to tropical plant research and conservation, find tropical fruit cultivars to flowering trees and endangered plant species here.

    CocoWalk:

    Coconut Grove’s favorite open-air shopping hotspot, CocoWalk is currently under renovation. Once complete, this top destination will include modernized retail, an open-air plaza with a contemporary façade, water features, foliage and café seating, plus a brand-new office building.

    Festivals and Sailing Events:

    Anyone interested in understanding Bahamian culture should visit the annual Goombay Festival. This colorful festival features a costume parade, dance performances, live music and authentic Bahamian food. For fine art fans, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival brings three days of family fun. There’s also the whacky King Mango Strut parade that turns the last Sunday of the year into one hilarious affair.

    Coconut Grove is also called the ‘Sail Capital of Miami’. You’ll find a local yacht club, sailing club and marina within walking distance of each other here. It’s also the top spot to catch a regatta, rent a boat, or bring your own vessel to explore the waters and set sail toward Florida Keys.
