What a disappointment and then to find out he was brother to Viscaya Deering. Tell me it ain't so. Save your money, $24 to see palm trees and water. Not good. And pictures aren't allowed inside unless you pay $107. I wouldn't take any pix if it was free. Go to Viscaya. He must have been the older brother that... More

What a glorious architectural masterpiece is this massive estate. Besides the historical significance, the setting is quite impressive.

I would guess that the main attraction of this estate is its view of the water, because most of the buildings are almost rustic. The Mediterranean-style villa is more upscale, but really not all that much except for its size and exterior. inside it is quite plain and is sparsely furnished.There is, however, a substantial collection of colorful Spanish religious...

A great place to visit to see how the wealthy lived back in the days before A/C. This estate is right on the water. Great place to take a date or the kids for an afternoon trip into the past.

This was a great adventure. Canoe to Chicken Key during the full moon. You can absolutely tell that Elias the tour guide loves what he does and it makes everything that much better. Stunning views and lovely time.

Sometimes they plan concerts in the garden during the cool months such as Valentine's Day. During the concert there food vendors who offer different kinds of foods and drinks for purchase or you may bring your own... More

I live right down the street and this is one of my favorite places to bike to. It's $12 to get in for adults which is more than I'd like to pay. However I understand why they charge so much. The grounds and buildings on site are gorgeous and have a view to die for. Once a month, they have... More

Loved it. No matter if you walk alone, with family, with friends visiting Miami. This is an amazing place to visit. Deering State deserves a visit thanks its nice views of the bay, the stunting house-museum and the parks/walks around it. Perfect for a pic/nic day in a sunny day with family and friends. Bring your own stuff . We... More
