Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

This is an old haunt of mine. I went not long ago to listen to the winners of the O Miami poetry competition recite (coming up again in April)....make sure you learn the back story of how one man put this beauty together piece by piece and basically started Miami's perpetual construction boom.

It is an old mansion and a museum with nice pieces of work. But the best part is the garden indeed. It is beautiful, magnificent. The view of Miami is also very beautiful from the house docks. It is a must see definitely.

Unfortunately, Miami is not a cultural center like other metropolitan cities in the U.S.. BUT, Viscaya is one of those little gems that could easily have been situated in southern Europe. The Deering family lived here as they had in Europe accept for ,maybe, some unwanted guests, early morning mosquitoes. Visiting Viscaya gives you a taste of that old fashion... More

Built in the early 1900s, this Estate is truly a gem. Tucked away in Coconut Grove, Miami, this is one place you do not want to miss. We went with my 2 year old daughter and there was enough space for her to roam, and nothing that she could get intoinside the home itself. Do yourself a favor, and check... More

If you have a couple of hours to spend in this area, you won't be disappointed. There is a trolley stop right there if you want to trolley your way there. I enjoyed it
