Get to know Coconut Grove

Beside Biscayne Bay’s blue hues await the coastal glory of Coconut Grove. This majestic Miami municipality is affectionately called The Grove, a moniker the hyper-verdant area fully embraces. Coconut Grove comprises South Florida’s beauty and history, all in a remarkably preserved package that feels like a true escape from the typical urban environment. Tree canopies rise over the streets and avenues, fostering a predominant placid, inviting aura. Miami’s oldest neighborhood fittingly boasts the area’s oldest house, still standing in its original 1891 location near a tropical hardwood hammock forest. The Mediterranean Revival-style Vizcaya Museum and Gardens sits among a native woodland landscape offering blooming flora, art exhibits, and intact early-20th-century architectural detailing and design. For contemporary living, you’ll find a compelling mix of options, including high-rise condominiums, sleek new developments, and charming bungalows. Not to mention, Coconut Grove is well-served by Miami’s Metrorail.

Biscayne Bay isn’t just for aesthetic pleasure here — though it is nice to look at — it’s integral to life. Docks spill out into the water from buzzing marinas, sites where mingling with friends and neighbors comes second only to sailing onto the sea. Once out there, delight in activities of all speeds, from fishing to jet skiing. Naturally, bayside dining is also a pastime for residents of The Grove, bites of the day’s freshest catches perhaps rivaled by sunset views. More dining options lay inland, where Coconut Grove’s cuisine transports you from five miles outside Downtown Miami to all around the globe. Similarly, the annual Goombay Festival celebrates the vibrant cultures of Coconut Grove with a carnival, food, and music. Coconut Grove’s shady sidewalks are loaded with stores for your perusal, including independent bookstores and curated fashion boutiques.
