South Dade

More to Explore

This eco-habitat is full of farmland, wildlife and attractions.

Cushioned by the Everglades to the west, Biscayne Bay to the east and the bustling city to the north, South Dade is where Miami unfurls into sprawling farmland, exotic fruit stands and the unique ecosystems of two national parks.

Everglades National Park spreads 1.5 million acres across the tip of South Florida supporting a habitat of alligators, crocodiles, white-tailed deer, Florida panthers and bald eagles. Biscayne National Park is the largest marine park in the national system with 95 percent of its 172,000 acres underwater. It's a boating, fishing and diving paradise.

Local Farms and parks grow their own exotic fruits and vegetables-and one produces its own wine from this tropical bounty. Sample a few while visiting Fruit & Spice Park, Knaus Berry Farm, Burr's Berry Farm and Schnebly Redlands Winery.

Attractions like Cauley Square Historic Railroad Village, the Gold Coast Railroad Museum and Deering Estate honor the area's unique history of early homesteaders and the construction of Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railway.

The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center transformed South Dade into a premiere destination for the performing arts, while the Homestead Miami Speedway keeps the adrenaline pumping turn after turn with high-octane events like the NASCAR Championships. It's also a destination to shop 'til you drop between The Falls, Southland Mall, and the Florida City outlet mall.

For more information, be sure to visit the South Miami-Dade Tropical Agriculture Visitor Center, and the South Dade Chamber of Commerce.
