While most people opt to stay in Miami Beach or Key Biscane by the ocean, those looking for something different will find plenty of things to do in Coconut Grove, Miami.

Not only is South Beach and Little Havana a 20 minute Uber ride away, and downtown Miami only 10 minutes, but it has a relaxing, bohemian vibe and a chilled out atmosphere that beckons you to go slow. Not the kind of vibe you expect from Florida’s biggest city.
