VISIT COCOWALK, VIZCAYA MUSEUM AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS
Set along the oceanfront just south of Miami Beach, The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne places hotel guests near the area’s most important attractions. Shop at Lincoln Road Mall and Coconut Grove, spend a day on the greens at Crandon Park Golf Course or stroll amid the beautiful landscape at the historic Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
The leading science museum dedicated to sharing the power of science, sparking wonder and investigation, and fueling innovation for the future. Located in Downtown Miami’s waterfront Museum Park, Frost Science is divided into four buildings: the Frost Planetarium, Aquarium, and North and West Wings. Here, guests can learn about the core science behind living systems, the solar system and known universe, the physics of flight, light and lasers, the biology of the human body and mind, and much more.
Vizcaya is a National Historic Landmark — a serene and stunningly beautiful retreat in the heart of Miami, built by agricultural industrialist James Deering, who wintered on the property from 1916–1925. Today, the extraordinary European-inspired estate includes a Main House filled with art and furnishings, ten acres of gardens on Biscayne Bay, a hardwood hammock (native forest), and an historic village that is being restored for public enjoyment.
This 83-acre garden, established in 1938, is one of the world’s pre-eminent botanical gardens, with extensive collections of rare, tropical plants. Featuring narrated tram tours, self-guided tours and programs in environmental education.
Home to Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove’s most influential pioneers, the Barnacle is the oldest home in Miami-Dade County still in its original location. It is now operated as a state park with tours at scheduled times.
Designed by Von Hagge, Crandon Golf at Key Biscayne is considered one of the most beautiful and difficult par 72 courses in Florida. From the first hole, a dog leg par 5 that requires a drive over water and mangroves, to the last, another par 5 with views of beautiful Biscayne Bay, Crandon Golf at Key Biscayne is Miami’s signature golf course.
