Coconut Grove

About Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove, also known as “The Grove,” is one of the oldest and most unique Miami neighborhoods. Many residents say it is undoubtedly the best neighborhood that you can find in Miami. It is located south of Brickell and just northeast of Coral Gables. Coconut Grove runs along the Biscayne Bay and features many different styles of homes. The townhome-style of property is prevalent in the area.

This area not only has a lot of history, but it is also one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Miami. It is famous for its cool Bohemian vibe, lush tropical landscaping, and relaxed city streets. As a result, homes, and condos are highly desirable and are some of the most luxurious and attractive properties on the Miami market. Condo units in the buildings along Bayshore Drive have some of the most spectacular and amazing views of Biscayne Bay. Some of my favorite buildings are Grove at Grand Bay, Two Park Grove, and Grovenor House.

The Coconut Grove neighborhood dates back to the Bahamian era of the 1870s, and in West Grove, you can find various art galleries, historical places, and farmer markets along Grand Avenue. In addition, it is home to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, boutique hotels, and the famous Coco Walk, with boutique shopping and dining.

The neighborhood is surrounded by a Dinner Key Marina located on the Biscayne Bay with sailboats tied on the shore giving off a surreal view for the eyes to cherish. The Coconut Grove Sailing Club offers you the chance to learn sailing or even enjoy the weekend regatta near the offshores of Kennedy or Peacock park.

There are many roadside cafés that you can spot while walking around. The most famous eatery is the Green Street Café, which offers countless delicacies that you can munch on a Sunday afternoon while watching the scenery around you. There are great boutiques all around the “Grove” that can fulfill your shopping cravings and leisure time all in one. The entertainment center and Coco Walk shopping will make your time fly by staying indulged in the exploration.
