Around The Grove
Coconut Grove is a quiet oasis just outside the busy city, but that doesn't mean your day should only be spent lounging on the beaches of Biscayne Bay! The neighborhood, locally known as The Grove, has no shortage of interesting sights to engage in nearby after a morning move.
The winter home of agricultural industrialist James Deering, Vizcaya is a National Historic Landmark and museum just 10 minutes from our store. Built between 1914 and 1922, this historic home offers a glimpse into life in the early 20th century with its traditional home decorations and layouts. The estate's art collections and acres of gardens filled with rare and unique plants also offer the community and tourists a fascinating spot to learn through the arts, history, and the environment.

If Vizcaya isn't enough to satisfy your art craving, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival (CGAF) will blow you away. Taking place every President's Day weekend, South Florida's most successful arts festival showcases works of 360 internationally recognized artists selected from approximately 1,300 applicants. Nearly one mile of arts, food, and music attracts over 120,000 people to the streets of McFarlane Road, South Bayshore Drive, and Pan American Drive for a unique cultural experience for the whole family in the heart of Coconut Grove.
Maybe your moving day doesn't align with the CGAF? You can still feel artsy at one of Coconut Grove's F.A.M. Nights. On the first Saturday of each month from October to April, The Grove celebrates fashion, art, and music through a community art walk, with boutiques and businesses hosting artists, live music, and special promotions throughout the evening.
There's nothing like moving to get you feeling hungry, and there's no neighborhood like Coconut Grove to satisfy all your food cravings. Recommended by our store manager, Middle Eastern and Greek market¬ Daily Bread Marketplace is a must-taste. Just next door to our store on 28th Lane this marketplace and dine-in caf√© serve and sell the best authentic tabouli salad, falafel, kabob, and more.
Our store manager also recommends El Carajo for a taste of the Hispanic culture that dominates Miami.
