See Our Top Coconut Grove Things To Do

When planning what to do during your stay in Coconut Grove, The Mayfair at Coconut Grove and our knowledgeable, plugged-in Concierge are the perfect start to your adventure. Coconut Grove's colorful past as a bohemian village filled with artists has given way to modern homes, trendy boutiques, theaters and graceful parks. Fun, fascinating things to do abound in every direction from The Mayfair. Wander through the grand Italian Renaissance-style Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, or marvel at the wildlife and sailboats of Biscayne Bay. A short walk brings you to Grove Harbor Marina, where you can book fishing and cruising charters. Shopping enthusiasts will enjoy being steps from fashionable Coco Walk, an open-air strolling zone filled with specialty shops and well-upscale boutiques. Of course, Coconut Grove's favorite pastime is to see and be seen, and the best place for people-watching is at one of the area's many outdoor cafés.

Please note that CocoWalk is currently under renovation and scheduled to reopen in early 2020.
