A great historic place. The kids and I learned about the history of Miami, Flagler Railway etc. The view of the ocean is breathtaking. The walking trail is beautiful. A great way to spend the day with the family. Once a month they have free entrance to the park. A must see if you are visiting.

A more homely version of Vizcaya. Not as fancy, but just as interesting. There is not as much to see here; but you have the old house and the new house. There is art but there is more is history. The property has good photographic vistas. This museum can be done in an hour, but it will be worth it.... More

Beautiful reminder of a bygone time and of the pioneers who come before us. Restored to a gorgeous condition, grounds are amazing and with luck you may see a manatee family playing in the bay or the boat pool right before your eyes.

Like Viscaya I love this one, too I took advantage of a free ticket and went with my children, we all loved it. Amazing house by the sea. It is less luxurious than Viscaya but charming. The tourist guides explained that is haunted and they have tours at night to witness paranormal activity. The view and gardens are amazing. I... More

If you are on your way to the Keys, this is a good resting spot. It is very tranquil and the view is beautiful. They have several events throughout the year which are a lot of fun. They also have kayaks for rent and you can take a boat ride along the bay! Very nice spot for a romantic picnic... More

This mansion was built for a relative of John Deering who owned Vizcaya Estate, this guy was from Maine. It has lovely grounds to walk, a number of buildings and you can rent kayaks! I didn't take the daily 3 pm tour as I am waiting for KW to come and share with him. This is a very special spot.

This place is amazing. Go. History, ecology, nature, bald eagles, otters, manatees, indian burial grounds, artists in residence, a prohibition era wine cellar/bank vault, all on Biscayne Bay. Beautiful spot for photography with the old house and the bay vistas. Being on the bay means their is always a cool breeze. This one of Miami's best kept secrets. Visit the... More

My father recommended this estate visit. We had been to Vizcaya a few years ago and were fascinated with it. Very nice place. So we thought the Deering estate would be up to the same standard. Oh we were wrong. On every level. There is a ticket booth to get tickets. No gift shop. No Guide book. Just a crappy... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit to Deering Estate. Visitors to the Deering Estate often enjoy drawing comparisons between Charles’ environmentally conscious preserve and private homes to his younger half-brother James’ cosmopolitan villa at Vizcaya. The Deering Estate was acquired by Charles Deering in 1913 as a respite from the hustle and bustle of city life, largely... More
