Deering Estate at Cutler

Landmark in Miami

The Deering estate is sort of ‘Vizcaya lite,’ which makes sense as it was built by Charles, brother of James Deering (of Vizcaya mansion fame). The 150-acre grounds are awash with tropical growth, an animal-fossil pit of bones dating back 50,000 years and the remains of Native Americans who lived here 2000 years ago. There’s a free tour of the grounds at 3pm included in admission, and the estate often hosts jazz evenings under the stars.
