“On it's own, not much to see here.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

We wanted a short trip from SoBe and this is on the tour bus route so we gave it a try. When the cab driver dropped us off in the 'historic' centre of town, we wondered if we were in the right place. There really isn't much here. A fairly small and unremarkable shopping area with an old house called the Barnacle nearby. The Barnacle had some interesting history ( it's a state park) but really that's it.
This is a residential area and if you are visiting Vizcaya (which is nearby and well worth the trip) it's worth calling in for lunch. OthErwise, nothing special.

“Nice shopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Nice shopping with awesome restaurants and special stores. Next to the VS and Starbucks there are also nice art galleries and clothing stores. Next time I'm in Miami I'll stop by coconut grove again.
