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.
