In the center of the village is the 1891, 5-acre pioneer residence of Ralph Monroe, Miami’s first honorable snowbird. The house is open for guided tours, and the park it's located on is a lovely, shady oasis for strolling. Barnacle hosts frequent (and lovely) moonlight concerts, from jazz to classical. A little way down Main Hwy, on the other side of the road, there’s a small Buddhist temple shaded by large groves of banyan trees.
