About Coconut Grove

A Guide to Coconut Grove
Miami's original neighborhood was founded in 1873 by an eclectic mis of pioneers, artists, intellectuals and adventurers. The tropical oasis of Coconut Grove thrives to this day as Miami's escape from the daily stress of city life. Coconut Grove also lines the Atlantic ocean and Miami's well-known Biscayne bay and is known for it sailing club and marinas. Sailers and boaters alike come to fish, kayak, or simply drift along the mangroves. In the middle of Miami, yet completely separate, Coconut Grove offers a warm, laid-back atmosphere of boutiques, shady lanes, sidewalk cafes and quaint watering holes with a distinctly bohemian flair where one can drop in and chill out every day of the week, any time of the year.
