Located along the edge of Biscayne Bay, the 450+ acre Deering Estate is an environmental, archaeological and historic preserve that offers unique opportunities to experience Florida’s natural resources. Visitors enjoy daily tours of historic homes, hikes through the lush natural areas, opportunities to examine fossils and tools left behind by pre-historic humans, and much more. The Deering Estate is a cultural and educational facility that offers classes and programs for children and adults, as well as rental space for special social functions. The Estate is part of the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department, which manages the property on behalf of the State of Florida. Regular tours of the lush natural areas and historic buildings are offered daily by our Education and Interpretive Staff and are free with regular Estate admission. Deering Adventure programs, specialty tours and a full calendar of enriching cultural programming make the Estate the ideal destination for family outings, community meetings and corporate groups.
