    Coconut Grove

    Favorite thing: The site of the first major settlement in the Miami area , Coconut Grove was , for a time
    in the 1960's and 70's a big -time bohemian hangout. The town has envolved- if that's the word-into a highly commercialized area.

    Fondest memory: Its main attraction other than the excellent Coconut Grove Playhouse, is now the CocoWalk Shopping center , a stylized shopping mall with some restaurants, shops and cinema.

    There are a cople of attraction worth the trip, and a wondeful B&B.
    Just next to that B&B is the former home of
    Everglades champion marjory Stoneman Douglas, which the city may soon turn into a museum.

    Antes de que Miami se...

    Favorite thing: Antes de que Miami se convirtiera en ciudad, Coconut Grove era una comunidad floreciente y en su renombrado hotel Bay View House se hospedaban intelectuales, artistas y escritores. Vale la pena dirigirse hacia el sur y hacer una recorrida por sus casas bajas escondidas entre palmeras y mangos, la visita puede completarse con la llegada a Cocowalk, que es un centro de compras y entretenimientos con bares y restaurantes al aire libre.
    Coral Gables tiene una arquitectura mediterránea, con los hoteles mas elegantes del condado, por ejemplo el hotel Baltimore con sus patios moriscos y su torre imitación perfecta de la Giralda de Sevilla; la Venetian Pool, una pileta pública de estilo italiano con cascadas, ubicada en De Souto Boulevard y Toledo, y el selecto Coral Gables City Hall.
    En dirección opuesta, es decir hacia el norte, y sobre la isla de Miami Beach, la distinguida y sofisticada Bal Harbour es otro punto que no hay que perderse. Sus playas son tranquilas, y sus centros de compras contienen las mas famosas marcas del mundo de la moda.
    Las playas públicas de Key Biscayne dentro de los parques Crandon y Bill Bags Cap Florida, son amplias y mucho menos concurridas que las del South Beach, ofrecen estacionamiento y servicios, y poseen entornos naturales de gran belleza, senderos para bicicletas, canchas de tenis y golf.
