Its Friday the 13thbut it’s Miami so it’s always exciting! And within it, is the gorgeous Village of Pinecrest, one of thirty-four municipalities in the ever so fascinating Miami-Dade County. A favorite amongst many Miamians and nationally recognized as one of the most beautiful residential neighborhoods in South Florida. Though I’ve cultivated embracing being your Coral Gables Specialist in real estate, it extends as well to Pinecrest and here is why…
The Village of Pinecrest boundaries are generally from the northern end of SW 88 St, east to Red Road 57 Ave to the South up to SW 136 St and West to US-1/South Dixie Highway highlighted in yellow on the map.
Incorporated in 1996, it is approximated eight square miles intertwined within other municipalities of Coral Gables, South Miami, and Palmetto Bay. Filled with gorgeous lush landscapes everywhere, lots of shopping, small businesses, restaurants, great schools, and parks just to name a few. Close enough to Miami International Airport, downtown and a gateway to The Florida Keyes makes this part of town a hot market as well.
If the importance of living in a community such as Village of Pinecrest sounds appealing, then it definitely must be on your real estate radar. Check out more of it at the official page here: https://www.pinecrest-fl.gov/
One of the main attractions that draw many locals and tourists lies on a 14-acre botanical garden, Pinecrest Gardens. This historic property for Miami standards that is, was home to Parrot Jungle (now Jungle Island on Watson Island) located on Red Road (57 Ave) and Killian Drive (SW 112 St). Set in native tropical hardwood and cypress, it features over 1,000 unique tropical plants. Guided tours, art gallery, Farmer’s Market even see a concert, play or a movie. Great activities for children too. For more information: https://www.pinecrestgardens.org/gardens-home
Check out a book, paint workshop, creative writing class or even yoga at the modern Pinecrest Library in true Miami style with a Romero Britto sculpture that neighbors Pinecrest Gardens.

Another cool and must do in Pinecrest is “Home of the famous Strawberry Shakes” since 1948: Wayside Market. Located right on Red Road and 100 Street. A great stop while on a bike ride, take a break under the canopy and pick up some fresh fruit, veggies or local sweets.
