Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami

On a recent trip to Miami, FL my family and I visited the exquisite Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Coconut Grove. Vizcaya is an Italian-style villa located on the Biscayne Bay, and the former estate of International businessman James Deering. A National Historic Landmark, it was built between the years 1914-916. When one thinks of Miami, the first things that come to mind are the beach, ocean and nightlife – not a tour of an early 20th century home and gardens. But Vizcaya was one of the most interesting and unique things we did the entire trip, and one I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Miami. View Post
