An upscale tourist destination just south of Brickell, Coconut Grove has a wide variety of restaurants serving cuisines from around the world. Although the Grove isn't far from the center of Miami, its quiet, residential atmosphere makes for a refreshing change of pace. The Grove's signature attractions include the Miami Science Museum, the CocoWalk open-air mall and the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, an early 20th century estate preserved as a park. Coconut Grove hosts several cultural events each year, ranging from the classic open-air Coconut Grove Arts Festival to the idiosyncratic Great Grove Bed Race, where participants race beds decorated as pirate ships, cars, and rockets.
Getting Around Miami
The best way to get around Miami is by public transportation (bus/metro) or by car, depending on where you are staying. If staying downtown, public transit is a convenient option. In downtown Miami, the Metromover runs every 90 seconds to 3 minutes depending on demand and operates from 5 a.m. until midnight every day.
