Coconut Grove & Village West

Coconut Grove

A little Bohemian, A little Bahamian and altogether fascinating. “The Grove” is a place where people can stroll tree-lined streets, pop in at galleries, cafes and bookstores and savor a waterfront ambience. History and heritage still echo through The Grove, as you discover when strolling beside the bay at Peacock Park: or by visiting Ralph Munroe’s former home, The Barnacle, which dates back to 1891.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Trapp Homestead, constructed in 1887 and privately owned today; the Ransom School Pagoda, built in 1902 and now part of the Ransom Everglades School campus; and The Kampong, where you can admire 2,000 rare and unusual varieties of tropical and subtropical fruits, palms, vines, and flowering trees.

Another early home still surrounded by luxuriant grounds is now a museum: Vizcaya Museum and gardens, winter residence of industrialist James Deering from 1916 to 1925. Despite its location near the tropics, Vizcaya was designed to resemble one of the most significant collections of Italian furniture in the United States.

The Grove is home to CocoWalk, a shopping and entertainment complex. When the sun sets, CocoWalk lights up the night with a variety of restaurants and bars. Culinary styles span the globe in the Grove, whether you’re hankering for fresh seafood, savory pasta, ceviche by the spoon or just a scoop of gelato.

Village West

The past is still alive in coconut Grove. Touring the sites in the Coconut Grove Village West enclave is a culturally enriching experience for those seeking to learn about the African-American and Bahamian settlers who arrived at the tip of the Florida peninsula as early as the 1870s.

A stroll down Charles Avenue and other neighborhood streets is part of a heritage tour that includes the first Black church, a library, a cemetery and a number of historic homes.

Included are the E.W.F. Stirrup House, home to an early settler who built 100-plus homes in the area; the Mariah Brown House, residence of one of the first Bahamians to arrive in Coconut Grove; and the Winston Elliot Scott House, former home of one of the nation’s first African-American astronauts. KROMA Gallery is located in the heart of Village West, consisting of creative studios and communal exhibition space.
