I wouldn't drive too far out of my way to visit here, don't expect too much. if you happen to be in the area it's a nice little shady retreat to learn a bit about some south Miami history and boat building... The neighborhood is safe, trendy and upscale. The price to enter is a suggested $2.00 per person, (your meter on the street might cost you more).
The barnacle Park is part of the Miami tourist and cultural route. 19 century home of Middleton Monroe one of Coconut Grove'most influential residents. This is one of the oldest houses in Miami Dade. Stilling its original location. Peaceful, beautiful view and botanical garden.
An oasis of peaceful nature hidden amidst the busy pace of the Grove. I take the girl I nanny there frequently to look at the water and run around. Small, but pleasant.
The Barnacle is a historic home built in 1891. It was home to Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove's most influential pioneers. The home offers a glimpse of life, when all travel to and from Miami was by boat. Munroe sought to preserve the forest on his land, and cut out a small trail through the hammock, barely wide enough for one vehicle. Today, the property contains many large, old trees. The home is left in its natural state, and appears much as it did in Munroe's days. The Barnacle is a great place to enjoy a picnic on the lawn, a tour through the hammocks, rocking in the chairs in the front porch, or a family night at one of their shows. Watch the sailboats go by and take a picnic basket. This site is definitely for the history buffs and peace and quiet seekers. I come here with my boyfriend and roam around. It is very peaceful. We take a blanket with some food and some wine and just chill while taking photos of the historic home. Cute getaway.
Always feels like a hidden gem since it's not that crowded compared to its Coconut Grove surroundings. Lovely place to relax, look over the water, etc.
