I attended a fantastic evening wedding here and had an absolutely great time. Staff had everything well organized. We went seamlessly from the ceremony to outdoor socializing on the lawn. Then we transitioned into dinner and dancing. The building is wonderful as well as the outdoor setting. I would recommend it for any wedding.

A beautiful piece of Miami's history. This can be a self-guided tour or a guided tour. Make sure to have plenty of room for pictures. This is a great place for a picnic as well. Rich in history and right on the water.

This property is amazing, you have to pay a fee to go inside but it not that expensive. GREAT VIEWS. There is nothing to eat here, so bring your food, and you can have a panic in the patio. They have a hidden wine cellar, that is beautiful.

Beautiful evening with the little ones. The Deering is so inviting to the whole family. We enjoyed a dinner picnic under the stars viewing Mars and the full moon.

A great home/museum to visit. There is a lot to see and take in so give yourself a few hours. When finished turn left out of the gate/entrance and take walk along the path to see the river and great views over to the otherside.
