This is a little jewel about 10 minutes cab ride from downtown Miami. Great place to while away an hour or two and see how the other half lived in the Great Gatsby days of the US. The house is small in scale but rich in detail and, thanks to the design and ample printed explanations, it is easy to... More

I first visited Vizcaya in the late 70's and the beauty stayed with me so much, I was determined to visit again to share with my husband. We had a perfect weather day and walked the entire house and gardens. As beautiful and peaceful as I remember, although now you can hear the sounds of traffic in some of the... More

I was initially skeptical, since we've been to a number of historic homes, but this one, for some reason, was quite captivating. James Deering, of International Harvester fortune, built an overwhelming mansion with beautiful gardens. Although there are some guided tours, we took the self-guided audio tour ($5/person) which was just right - good interesting stories that kept your interest.

I absolutely love Vizcaya. I am a local and cannot get enough of it. It is such a peaceful and beautiful place to sit and enjoy a day with family, friends, or significant other. Definitely recommend.

This is an old haunt of mine. I went not long ago to listen to the winners of the O Miami poetry competition recite (coming up again in April)....make sure you learn the back story of how one man put this beauty together piece by piece and basically started Miami's perpetual construction boom.

It is an old mansion and a museum with nice pieces of work. But the best part is the garden indeed. It is beautiful, magnificent. The view of Miami is also very beautiful from the house docks. It is a must see definitely.
