To the south and slightly west of the Downtown Miami lies Coconut Grove Real Estate. Founded as an artists’ colony more than 100 years ago, Coconut Grove is an eclectic community that includes some of the oldest buildings in the Miami area. From estates to single-family homes to condos, Coconut Grove homes offers a range of options, both on the water and off, with easy access to Downtown Miami and the Brickell business district, the University of Miami, fine schools such as Ransom Everglades, Carrollton, and St. Stevens.
Coconut Grove restaurants, shopping, and art galleries are eclectic, from fun and funky to casual waterfront hangouts and fine dining with fantstic views. Dinner Key Marina and a variety of conveniently located hotels in Coconut Grove mean that the Grove’s nightlife population is always ebbing and flowing.
Being outdoors is important to Grove life, and many eateries offer outdoor dining. But fun in the sun is year round, with events such as the Great Grove Bed Race (Labor Day Weekend), the King Mango Strut (Dec./Jan.) , the Coconut Grove Arts Festival (Feb.), and the Great Taste of the Grove (April). Holidays are always special in the Grove, as the community comes together with fun for all ages. Beautiful public parks, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and close-by Matheson Hammock Park and Crandon Park on Key Biscayne offer lots of choices for outdoor fund and relaxation.
