http://davidsbeenhere.com In this episode, produced especially for The Welcome Channel, David takes viewers around the historic neighborhood of Coconut Grove in his hometown of Miami, Florida. If you’ve ever wondered what you can do, see, or eat in this bohemian neighborhood, just watch and learn!
The Grove, as the locals like to call it, is an area known for historic landmarks like the beautiful 1920’s Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and The Kampong – a beautiful botanical garden where David and his wife got married, and finally The Barnacle State Park. All three are located along the shores of Biscayne Bay.
In the Grove you can keep it as slow or fast-paced as you like. For decades it’s been a fantastic place to dine, shop and enjoy the amazing Miami weather. David still enjoys coming here to this day, especially for Sunday brunch. You’ll notice there are less crowds here than in South Beach, which gives it a more relaxed vibe.
