I used to be a "Grove" local, but moved to Broward in 2000. When I lived there, I visited the Barnacle often. It's been years since I have been there and I'm delighted to report that this is still a must see historic landmark if you are visiting Coconut Grove. The property is perfectly maintained and I loved the recent addition of the gift shop. We arrived too late for a tour, but there are so many stories to be told about Commodore Munroe and this property, it's worth taking, just to hear about the amazing history. Katrina, welcomed us at the gift shop and gave us all kinds of updates on current events and celebrations at the park. Local or not, the Barnacle will take you back in time. If you are a local, you may want to have a talk with your city commissioners about the homeless encampment at the gate. It's not particularly welcoming to tourists.
