Coconut Grove is located South of U.S. 1 and Rickenbacker Causeway, and is bound West by LeJeune Road and East by Biscayne Bay. Coconut Grove is filled with a history of many firsts: the first South Florida hotel built in 1882, one of the first naval air stations built in 1917 during World War I by the U.S. Navy, and the first library in the county, which still operates today as the Coconut Grove Library, were all located in Coconut Grove. One can get a taste of Coconut Grove’s rich history today by visiting the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and The Kampong. Vizcaya is the former estate of the wealthy businessman James Deering and the beautiful Mediterranean-inspired villa is surrounded by a tranquil lush garden and a terrace that descends towards the sea. The Kampong is the former botanical garden and home of Dr. David Fairchild. The beautiful estate holds exotic plant life from Asia, Central and South America, and the Caribbean, and serves as a picturesque location for weddings and other private events.
Today, Coconut Grove is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Miami and is distinguished by its laid-back, bohemian lifestyle. A canopy of trees shelters most of the area, which allows for various day time activities such as biking and running. Various parks with waterfront views are available for families, as well as dog parks for your lovable pets. For example, Peacock Park, located where the first South Florida hotel once stood, contains a new outdoor playground, open field, and a walkway in front of the waters of Biscayne Bay. There are public events and festivals year-round, such as the Coconut Grove Arts Festival in February, the Great Taste of the Grove in Spring, and the King Mango Strut held on the last Sunday of the year.
Coconut Grove offers an eclectic house market with a perfect fit for everyone. Condominiums, single-family homes, and opulent waterfront homes are all present to cater to a variety of people and lifestyles. One of the best things about Coconut Grove is that residents don’t have to compromise between a peaceful neighborhood and a fun nightlife scene. Plenty of lounges and bars are available to visit, or take a walk down CocoWalk and enjoy a delicious dinner and a movie. It is because of the Grove’s abundance of activities and lifestyle choices that makes it a desirable location for most to call home.
