Homestead / Florida City

More To Explore

It’s all about the nature enthusiast and great outdoors.

You don’t have to travel far to get to Homestead, but once you’re there, you may feel like you’ve stepped back in time, or discovered a hidden oasis. As Miami-Dade County’s second-oldest city (it was incorporated in 1913), it’s got the perfect blend of historic sites, natural beauty, choice food products, and entertainment to hit all of your tourism sweet spots. It’s a short 30 miles south of Miami, so whether you need a dose of hometown atmosphere or want the next best thing to a safari, this is the place to go.

For more information, be sure to visit the Tropical Everglades Visitor Association.

Your #HomesteadMiami Moments

Homestead

According to Megan, Homestead is considered America’s fruit basket, and once you see the miles of produce and farms, you’ll understand why. Homestead was the first city built outside Miami, and the Hotel Redland was one of the first buildings constructed. You can still visit it today to view antiques, vintage furniture, and photographs. There’s also a ton of food and drink options in the area, plus fun outdoor activities such as strawberry picking and vineyard tours that add a different taste to the flavor of South Florida.
