This is the spectacular mansion on Biscayne Bay that has been in so many movies.
The property is owned and maintained by the county and they do an impressive job. You can tour the main areas on the first and second floors, the balcony area that looks out at Biscayne Bay, and the gardens. Many of the original furnishings are there.
Because many exterior carvings are limestone, they have deteriorated over the years. That is to be expected in this humid environment.
I only rated this a 4 because I think families with kids may not find it lots of fun. Other than that, I probably would have given it a 5. Interesting, knowledgeable staff who were happy to share stories, and a look at how the 1% lived in the past.
