I haven't been in traffic like that since I left Pittsburgh, which is one of the reasons I did leave. 2.5 hrs to go 60 mi south on I 95 and Dixie Hwy to deering from N Ft Liquordale. It was billed as a romantic valentines concert. It was the closest thing to a divorce Ive been in 15 yrs. Beautiful grounds on a bay practically ruined by stop n go traffic - mostly stopped. How can a lite turn green TWICE and I haven't moved !! Never again.

Lived down the road from the estate for 23 years. Quite a transformation from the original condition, which wasn't that bad back then. Now up to tourist standards. Beautiful view.

It's a nice place to just hang out, do a little tour of the estate or just enjoy the view. Nothing to do there but just chill.

A nice quiet day for a couple.
About $12 per person to get in.
Non special days offer a guided nature tour and separate home tour..included with admission. See web for times...You can see home on your own also. Make sure to see the wine cellar in basement.
NOTE: There ARE picnic tables with very nice water views so it is a good idea to make a picnic out of the day and take a house tour..If you do not make a picnic day out of it then the day well by ho/hum..There is NO food available for sale and only one soda/water machine.. There are clean restrooms... There are rocking chairs in front of cottage with water views..If you have polarized sunglasses you may notice a manatee or two napping about 20 feet away from far end of left sea wall.
This is a quiet place with a very nice view and some neat history..If you enjoy seeing some historic places, nice water view and making a fancy picnic then this should work well.

Thank you for your feedback on your visit to the historic Deering Estate at Cutler. In addition to the tours that are offered daily (and that are included with regular admission) - there are a variety of EcoAdventure Tours such as canoeing and biking (for an additional fee). Kayak rentals are also available on the weekends - weather permitting.

We hope that you could visit us again to experience one of these tours or a special event at the Estate!

Sincerely,
Cathy Guerra
