Coral Castle Museum

One of Miami’s quirkiest and most fascinating hidden gems is the Coral Castle Museum. This bizarre stone structure appears like a medieval castle orcastle transplanted into a Miami suburb. What makes it so mystifying is that the entire megalith was single-handedly constructed from huge megalithic stones by one man – a diminutive immigrant from Latvia named Ed Leedskalnin. Leedskalnin was only 5 feet tall and weighed just over 100 lbs but somehow quarried, sculpted, and moved over 1,100 tons of coral rock to assemble this sprawling castle and sculpture garden. To this day, no one is quite sure how he accomplished such a staggering feat of engineering without modern tools or machinery. Was he gifted supernatural abilities by aliens or ancient mystics? You’ll have to visit and decide for yourself! The castle grounds include rocking chairs, a sundial, and even a functioning 9-ton gate – all ingeniously carved from the dense coral rock.

Venetian Pool

Surrounded by Miami’s tropical splendor is a surprising architectural gem – the Venetian Pool. Built in 1924 from coral rock quarried nearby, this gigantic saltwater pool was carved right into a coral rock foothill. With its Mediterranean Revival style, picturesque waterfalls and grottoes, and two stately Italian Renaissance-style towers, it’s no wonder this historic pool has earned the nickname “The Beach That Came From A Quarry.” Come summertime, it transforms into an idyllic oasis where visitors can splash under the dazzlingly tiled grottos and wading areas or simply lounge poolside and marvel at this unique throwback to old-world grandeur. The cool turquoise waters, lush landscaping, and whimsical Venetian-inspired architecture make it the perfect Miami beach alternative for groups looking to beat the heat while experiencing some old-Florida charm. Just don’t forget to pack a bag with sunscreen and your swimsuits!

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

The stunning Mediterranean Revival-style villa boasts intricately carved stonework, lavish tiled ceilings, and sprawling furnished rooms that provide a glimpse into the height of luxury in the roaring ’20s.

Robert Is Here Fruit Stand

For a taste of old-school Florida combined with seriously tasty local produce, make a detour to the legendary Robert Is Here fruit stand in Homestead.

But the real draw is the funky vibe and kitschy charm taking over every nook of this iconic roadside market.
