I have gone to this place for years but never had the opportunity to get the tour and the whole history of it. Lucky me there was no charge that day, check their website, they have different days throughout the year. I read a bad review, sorry it was a bad experience but take into account, it is summer, raining... More

We drove half an hour to get to this place and went to the visitors center to buy a ticket at the ticket office where they told us you can't buy tickets here. Since we went in July the place was full of mosquitos, there were kids at the explores camp everywhere, and the nature trail was closed. We went... More

As it happens, many locals are oblivious to this beautiful place... we just had it in our to do list for quite some time, until we one day, we decided to try it out, we were amazed!!! Indeed, it's a bit difficult to find, but once you do, you have to come back. So I bought a one year membership... More

A great place to walk around and view the bay. Nice place for a picnic on the grounds. Come to the various events held throughout the year by purchasing a membership.

Simply put, it's a nice estate on the water that takes you back into the history of South Florida. You can also rent kayaks from the location. No big thrills, but it's a nice place to visit and just stroll the property. You can head to nearby Homestead for great shakes or Black Point Marina for lunch.

The grounds are beautiful and the tour was well worth waiting for. If you are going to be in the area check the website for events - they offer canoe trips, walks, hikes, lectures, concerts, etc. We were just passing through but will definitely go back. Our guide was excellent. A little hard to find but it was a Sunday... More

While his younger brother was ensconced up the road at Vizcaya, Charles Deering had created his own estate. This is another great example of how the good life was lived in South Florida during the 1920s boom years. Since the property was the site of a hotel when Deering acquired it, you get to see the transition in time. Then... More

We kind of stumbled across this treasure. The Richmond House is the 1st hotel from Coconut Grove to Key West and houses displays of work fm the resident artists. The main house has a magnificent ball room and a great prohibition wine vault in the basement. And then we had a delightful nature walk led by one of their guides,... More

Using the recommendation of the AAA book, we headed out to see this place during a few days' stay in the Miami area. We arrived at a lodge that bore the Deering name and figured that was where we needed to go. We found a young guy at the desk who told us this was just the place to go... More
