Deering Estate is a very nice place to take the kids. The view from the shoreline is amazing and the trails they have are very interesting. They have guided tours and a ranger station type building for you to look at the many displays they have set up. It's not that much to get in and for me at least I get hours of enjoyment out of it. It's a very peaceful place.

In the late 1800s and early 1900s the Deering brothers built homes in Miami. James Deering built the exquisitely elegant Villa Vizcaya and Charles Deering built the much more modest Deering Estate.

When I grew up in Miami, Vizcaya was already open to the public but the Deering Estate was a private residence - a mystery behind walls and thick landscape. The 442-acre property was donated to the Miami-Dade Park and Recreation Department in the late 1980s. On the National Register of Historic Places, Deering Estate has become an environmental, archaeological, historical and architectural preserve and is a memorial to the late Charles Deerings interest in the environment, botany, history, architecture, the fine arts, antiques, rare books and wine. My late father-in-law knew one of the caretakers when the estate was still private. He was allowed a rare glimpse into life there before it was open to the public. He came away with a bottle of wine from Mr.. Deering's private collection, which is now owned by my son who was married at the Deering Estate last year.

Historic and home tours are available of the historical buildings which date from 1896 to 1922, important archaeological sites that date human presence on this land to 10,000 years ago and animals back 100,000 years, and a Native American burial mound dating from around the year 1600. Trained naturalists now give daily tours of the natural areas. Guided Canoe Tours are offered of the surrounding shoreline and/or to the park's recently restored Chicken Key Bird Rookery that lies a mile off-shore.

Deering Estate provides a uniquely fabulous experience which should not be missed.
