Barnacle Historic State Park

State Park in Coconut Grove

In the center of Coconut Grove village is the 1891, 5-acre pioneer residence of Ralph Monroe, Miami’s first honorable snowbird. The house is open for guided tours (every 90 minutes between 10am and 2:30pm), and the park it's located in is a shady oasis for strolling. Barnacle hosts frequent (and lovely) moonlight concerts, from jazz to classical.
