Rooted in the hippie movement, Coconut Grove was a place for artists in the 60s. Against the urban development mainstream, the area kept its original atmosphere, with its cozy tree-lined sidewalks, local commerce, and friends meeting in its streets and cafes.
Just a few minutes from Coral Gables, the health district (Civic Center), Biscayne Bay, downtown Miami, MIA airport, the port, the Brickell Financial District, and the intense Miami Beach nightlife, Coconut Grove has become an island of quiet and relaxation amid the Metropolitan Miami rush. Whatever interests you, you're sure to find it here in Coconut Grove. The area has all types of cafes and restaurants, outdoor attractions, movie theaters, a wealth of promenades, and so much more.
