Considered to be Miami’s oldest neighborhood, the “Grove” is eclectic, culturally rich and lush. The bay setting beckons as do the amenities and vibrant urban atmosphere. Coconut Grove is unique, memorable and desirable.
If you want to explore the neighborhood, start with the center of activity – the shops, restaurants and trade centers at Grand Avenue and McFarlane Road –this area is highly visited, some of the best in Miami, and buzzing with people and activities. Out on the Main Highway at Bay Breeze Avenue; discover Kampong, a beautiful tropical botanical garden with plantings dating to the 1900s, with an Indonesian-styled house beside a pretty lagoon. The Vizcaya Museum & Gardens and the Barnacle State Historic State Park are other estates and gardens of interest that also serve as wedding and festival venues.
Indeed Coconut Grove has a packed schedule of outdoor festivals and events, notably the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, The Great Taste of the Grove Food & Wine Festival, the King Mango Strut and the Goombay Festival.
For shopping, dining and entertainment, residents – particularly students from the nearby Florida International University and University of Miami head to the open air cafes, waterfront bars, and the outdoor multi-story CocoWalk mall with a multiplex movie theatre and tons of restaurants and shops.
