Coconut Grove Real Estate Apartments and Condominiums Miami, Florida

Originally settled in the 1800s, Coconut Grove remains a charming, bayside village within the urban dynamic of Miami. The Grove, as it's commonly called, is the oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood of Miami. It was setlled mostly by Bahamian immigrants

The pedestrian friendly village center in Coconut Grove is filled with sidewalk cafes, galleries and boutiques and marinas. The small bohemian village feel is countered by recognizable chain restaurants, but small local cafes, college bars and independent boutiques still line the streets. Pull up a chair outside, watch the assortment of shoppers, bar-hoppers, students and tourists stroll the streets and enjoy the laid-back ambience.

Coconut Grove's relaxed atmosphere extends into the many open-air bay front parks in the area, including Peacock Park, Kennedy Park, The Barnacle Historic State Park and more.

The Village West neighborhood in Coconut Grove is the present day historic enclave of the Bahamian and African-American descendants of the early settlers of Coconut Grove. Their presence as the first black community on the South Florida mainland began here in the late 1870s when Blacks primarily from the Bahamas came via Key West to work at the Peacock Inn.
