Life in Coconut Grove...
Miami’s original neighborhood was founded in 1873 by an eclectic mix of pioneers, artists, intellectuals and adventurers. The tropical oasis of Coconut Grove thrives to this day as Miami’s escape from the stress of city life. Coconut Grove is located in the middle of Miami, yet completely separate and quaint. It offers a warm, laid-back atmosphere of charming boutiques, sidewalk cafes and sailboats anchored at the bay. The neighborhood’s distinct bohemian flair allows one to unwind and relax every day of the week and any time of the year.
Coconut Grove is the oldest inhabited neighborhood of Miami and still remains a charming bayside village, sitting on a tropical oasis.
Coconut Grove’s relaxed atmosphere extends into the many open air bay front parks in the area, including Peacock Park, Kennedy Park, The Barnacle Historic state Park, and may more.
Over the years the neighborhood has grown a strong community of those who live, work and play there. Many of the natives live a rich, bohemian life within the borders of their lush tropical village. The Europeans feel at home in this town where not one street is alike, and where you can walk to almost every place. This fun community also rhymes with cultural diversity and good vibes.
The Grove is also home to many popular annual events and outdoor festivals, the most prominent of which is the annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival. The Great Taste of the Grove Food & Wine Festival also takes place each year.
The schools offer excellent programs, both private and public, magnet, international, AP… you name it, and it’s available. Not to mention that the top ranked prep school in the Nation is located in the Grove! All these assets make this community very desirable for families.
