Walking and Biking tours of Coconut Grove
|Main Highway, back in the day|
“From its beginnings in 1873, Coconut Grove has represented one of Greater Miami’s most attractive, exciting, and compelling communities. Add equal dollops of beauty, creativity, eccentricity, and profound institutional development and you have the area that has appealed to residents and visitors alike for the past 140 years,” said historian Dr. Paul George. Among Coconut Grove’s residents and visitors were many influential Americans including Robert Frost, Tennessee Williams, Alexander Graham Bell, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, William Deering, William Matheson, David Fairchild, and others.
On Sundays, October 13 and October 20, Dr. Paul George will conduct walking tours of the Grove and on Sundays, November 3 and November 24, Frank Schena will give historic Eco Bike tours.
To reserve a space, please call the BID office at 305-461-5506. The tours are sponsored by the BID, arranged by HistoryMiami.
