Community spotlight: Coconut Grove

Laid-back community south of downtown Miami offers local feel near the big city
  • Coconut Grove is walkable thanks to pedestrian-friendly paths and shopping districts.
  • Median home value in the Grove is $300,000, and average rent is $3,950.
  • The Metrobus and Miami Metrorail service the area at the Vizcaya, Coconut Grove and Douglas Road metrostations.

Once a haven for beatniks and hippies alike, Coconut Grove has steadily maintained a reputation as a community focused on relaxing. Although a bit more evolved from the bohemian culture it once attracted, the Grove is now peppered with condominiums and boutique storefronts, making sure the artistic vibe still shines through in this cultural pocket of yesteryear’s Florida.
