The most amazing thing of this place is finding so much of European architechtural details in a American building. Lovely gardens and port!

The home is beautiful, the setting and gardens are exquisite! We enjoyed the self-guided tour of the house and then wandered the gardens.

this mansion was built by Deering, the founder of John Deere and originally from Chicago. it's gorgeous, one of the first to be built back in the pioneer days of miami and worth the visit. visit it with the tour guide, lots of information on old miami.

If you can drive here, that would be advisable. We took the Metrorail then walked and it was like a maze. We had to walk over a highway overpass, then through the Science Museum parking lot, then through a mini-forest (which looked like it was out of Friday the 13th movies). We were hot and sweaty by the time we... More

I am so glad that this residence was turned into a museum. I took lots of pictures since this place was used to film several movies, one of them was Bad Boys starring native star Will Smith

We visited the Vizcaya on a rainy day and it still was absolutely beautiful! The inside is air conditioned which is a big relief from the Miami heat and humidity. There are two floors you can visit. There are lots of rooms to explore and it takes you back to the past. Pictures are not allowed inside but are allowed... More

This is the spectacular mansion on Biscayne Bay that has been in so many movies. The property is owned and maintained by the county and they do an impressive job. You can tour the main areas on the first and second floors, the balcony area that looks out at Biscayne Bay, and the gardens. Many of the original furnishings are... More

This mansion is intriguing in the sense that it combines things from the old with new. The house is designed with the arts and antique James Deering collected. The house gives you a feeling that it is older than 100 years old because of all the antiques from 15th century to 19th century. Each of the rooms are well put... More
