Bike tour of North Grove presented by Vizcaya

The BID has its monthly bike tours and now Vizcaya is getting into the act. On Monday, January 20, eco-historian Frank Schena is giving a tour of the North Grove from 10 am to noon. 

Take a spin through north Coconut Grove to see its rich history, lush vegetation and treasures along the shore of Biscayne Bay. After the bike tour, you can explore Vizcaya on your own. 

Tickets are $35 for non-members and $25 for members of The Vizcayans and HistoryMiami.  

Advance registration required through HistoryMiami only at citytours@historymiami.org or 305-375-1621. 

The tour begins and ends at Vizcaya. Bicycles not provided. Ticket price includes admission to Vizcaya following the bike tour. 

Vizcaya's owner, James Deering, was an environmentalist. By building his house close to the water, Deering was able to preserve much of Vizcaya's inland native forest.
