The Kampong, oozing with Miami history, is a well kept secret. Nestled along the beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay, this property leads one out of the chaos of a fast-paced Miami lifestyle into the serenity of a magical garden. Complete with countless plant varieties(well labelled), uniquely designed buildings, and tales of South Florida pioneers (dating back to the 1800s), one can't help but be impressed with this little-known gem. Dr. David Fairchild, one of the more famous residents, contributed his horticultural knowledge to create this tropical paradise. Dr. Eleanor Simmons, an equally notable character, was Miami's first woman physician who often made trips by donkey to Miccosukee tribal lands to help ailing natives. There are so many stories which could fill this review, but treat yourself instead, to a trip of your own and see what a special place this really is. Reservations are recommended (Groupons sometimes available). Walking is easy to moderate
