Situated just south of downtown Miami, “the Grove,” a waterfront community founded by Bahamian immigrants in the 1840s, was annexed to the city in 1925. Long popular with artists and academics from New England who wintered here, Coconut Grove is where bohemians mix freely with billionaires on the town’s shady streets. Grand Avenue, the main thoroughfare, is lined with exclusive shops, smart cafes, and art galleries. Shoppers gravitate to Mayfair in the Grove, Commodore Plaza, and CocoWalk. Architecture buffs, take note: there are more 19th-century homes in Coconut Grove than anywhere else in south Florida.
