I'm glad I didn't pay to get into the Deering Estate. I'm a long-time MIami resident and went here about 15 years ago. The house itself is very modest compared to Deering's brother who owned Vizcaya towards downtown Miami. What was so disappointing was that the house was virtually empty of the family's furnishings and belongings. Most of the rooms... More

We took the tour earlirr this month. The place is a gem but the tour was a bit disappointing--not sure they told enough about the guy himself, where he made his money. Not too busy when we were there, not sure how popular this location is. Glad we went once, but we saw it all and one visit is enough.

The nature tours here are terrific. We went on the trail and learned about archeological sites, flora and fauna, as well as efforts to restore original plants, water and general nature habitat. The lecturer really cared about her subject and taught us much. Don't miss this if you want to understand the unique ecosystems in this area. I saw it... More

Worth seeing on its own, but also as a comparison to Vizcaya! The old Florida is history worth keeping, and the moguls that lived here had beautiful homes!

For a small entrance fee you can walk around the grounds, through the mangroves, go into the houses, or it is a place you may want to take a picnic and sit by the water for the day. It is relaxing and enjoyable.

This is Palmetto Bays best kept secret. Take the kids and relax or just sit by the bay and see why it is a jewel by the bay.. If you can get on their website and attend their incredible events (Seafood Festival, Valentine Concert, etc) and you will be in for a real treat FYI a very good friend of... More

Don't go during the rainy season, too many mosquitoes to contend with, The grounds were well kept and the home worth seeing,, but it would be nice to have the facilities air conditioned for tourist comfort.

Just south of Coral Gables is this fascinating estate. Very much worth the visit. The grounds are immaculate and the home was decorated for the holidays. Don't miss the wine cellar dating form the days of prohibition.

If you like to visit historical sites, this is for you. Small estate with beautiful views and 2 historical homes. One has been rebuilt as it was destroyed in hurricane Andrew. Great walk through mangroves.

There is a nice walk around the grounds and a tour of the house. A few hours to see the entire property. The best time is to go to one of the festivals that are held often on the grounds.
