Coconut Grove represents old-school Miami. This small pocket of bayfront parks, marinas, shops, and restaurants just south of downtown Miami, is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Recently, independent shops and restaurants are opening. Young families have moved in, and there are art galleries and green spaces and pedestrian-friendly streets. People from all over the city are realizing that the Grove is cool again. Coconut Grove's waterfront location and historic charm kick off its appeal, but the real winner here is the dining scene. Mouthwatering options include the likes of French, Peruvian, Hawaiian, Mediterranean, creamy gelato, and more. Come hungry.
