We had a great time touring the grounds and buildings within the Estate and learning about Charles Deering and family whose brother actually built Viscaya just north of it closer to Miami. The grounds, although not the Vizcaya manicured gardens are beautiful. The different buildings are reflective of life in the are in the early 1900's. The highlights for sure are the Stone House and the Richmond Cottage because of it's history dating to the days before Deering purchased the land. The Boat Basin is unique and a haven for manatees. It was so fun to see a good number of them breaching for air and enjoying their natural habitat. However, I was concerned for them as we witnessed a tour boat that appeared to be part of Miami-Dade Parks called the MDPros Explorer come into the basin with their full blasting engines to drop off a group of people. It is my understanding that boats with such engines are to at least lower their speed and or raise their engines none of which happened. We mentioned it to the skipper as people were getting off the boat and he didn't seem to care which was concerning given the fact manatees are protected and in danger species. Overall, a great visit and a very interesting place.

Drove 20 miles out of my way, got there at 4:03pm (didnt realize traffic would be so bad due to people back at work and kids in school). Anyway, the gate was open, walked in with my 86 yo mom hoping to go for a short but pleasant walk, then ran back to car for my camera while she kept walking, but then I encountered the rudest MDC Parks employee who proceeded to kick myself and mother out (had to go get her out of the park) even though they stay open until 5pm. I had even brought exact change to pay for tickets since they had asked for it the first (and now last) time I had gone there. I thought the last time I went that they said the gate was open until 4:30pm and the park closed at 5pm. Also, he could have told us that there was a separate little walk nearby down to the water and dock that was part of the park and accessible - but he didnt. He just preferred being on his power trip in his big truck. He waited till we drove off, then parked right up behind us when we were parked in the other lot (where we had gone to do the other walk). He treated us like we were criminals. So fine, I dont need to go to the trouble of going back, and I prefer to just give my money and memberships to Fairchild Gardens and other local parks. Who needs Deering Estate, that experience left a terrible impression. I once worked for a city parks department, and thats not how you are supposed to treat the public.

This past weekend, I went to Deering Estate, in Miami, Florida. They were offering a sunrise photography shoot. There was a small group of us at the event. It was my first time visiting there. The estate property is beautiful and the view at sunrise was amazing. We had an awesome guide, Jessica, who met us at the gate and escorted us back to the area. She was friendly and made sure everyone had their mask on. We had a great time, and it was a once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommend.

Deering Estate is a somewhat hidden park - just off of Old Cutler Road and SW 168 Ave. The grounds are impeccable - truly represent what the estate would have looked like 150 years ago. The walking trails are well identified and fauna and flora are identified. Bring your camera the scenery is great for photos - sunrises are the best. I think it is a bit expensive for a single visit - if local the membership is better.

The house is interesting, the walk around the estate is way more interesting. First, we had a picnic lunch over looking the bay, which was very nice. The house is ok and the history is interesting. We took a guided walk through the estate and it was very good. Our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. Learned a lot. Definitely worth 3 hours.
