Orientation & Geography

North America, United States, Miami

Coconut Grove is the oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood of Miami, Florida in Miami-Dade County, United States. The borders of the neighborhood are approximately defined as north of N. Prospect Dr, east of LeJeune Road, south of US 1, west of Rickenbacker Causeway and west of Biscayne Bay. It is south of the Brickell and The Roads neighborhoods, and east of Coral Gables. The neighborhood's name has been sometimes spelled "Cocoanut Grove" but the definitive spelling "Coconut Grove" was established when the city was incorporated in 1919. What is today referred to as Coconut Grove was formed in 1925 when the city of Miami annexed two areas of about equal size, the city of Coconut Grove and most of the town of Silver Bluff. Coconut Grove approximately corresponds to the same area as the 33133 zip code although the zip code includes parts of Coral Way and Coral Gables and a small portion of zip code 33129. The area is often referred to by locals as "The Grove." Coconut Grove is served by the Miami Metrorail at three stations: Vizcaya Station, Coconut Grove Station, and Douglas Road Station. Vizcaya Station directly serves Mercy Hospital, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and Miami Science Museum, while the Coconut Grove and Douglas Road stations serve the central Grove area along SW 27th Avenue and Grand Avenue respectively.
