Hugging the shoreline of Biscayne Bay, Coconut Grove is an upscale, tropical like neighborhood with relaxed sidewalk cafes and chic shops in and around the CocoWalk mall.
Coconut Grove is not only surrounded by trendy shopping and entertainment areas, but this Miami’s oldest community has a lot to offer with its banyan-shaded, peacock-filled streets that will transport you to another era.
Coconut Grove’s several green spaces include bay-front Barnacle Historic State Park, the iconic Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, centered on a lavish Italian-style villa. Coconut Grove is also known for its historic sites, such as Peacock Park, Peacock Plaza, the Woman’s Club, Coconut Grove’s Library and Playhouse and much more. Sailing clubs and marinas dominate the waterfront.
A little Bahamian and a little bohemian, Coconut Grove draws influence from its original Bahamian settlers and an influx of artsy inhabitants from decades past. As Miami’s oldest neighborhood, history and heritage still echo through Coconut Grove.
Since its inception in the late 1800′s, Coconut Grove has been home to tycoons, adventurers, artists, writers, and musicians.
Today, the village known to locals simply as “The Grove” remains a warm and welcoming escape from the stresses of city life. The combination of chef-driven restaurants, charming sidewalk cafes, chic boutiques, lush parks, and a glittering shoreline decorated by sailboats make Coconut Grove a destination brimming with scenic serenity and natural splendor.
