Shop Dadeland and Live Kendall

This popular suburban area has one of Miami’s busiest malls.


Miami's suburban areas are worth exploring. Check out Kendall for a glimpse of local life. Much of what is now Kendall was purchased from the State of Florida in 1883 by the Florida Land and Mortgage Company. It is named after Henry John Broughton Kendall, a director of the company who moved to the area in the 1900s to manage the company's land.

Today, Kendall is a Miami suburb with hotels, shopping, dining and entertainment to suit every taste. One of Kendall's landmarks is Dadeland Mall, one of the nation's busiest suburban shopping malls.
