The massive, beautiful Charles Deering Estate was the Florida home of bigwig Charles Deering until his death in 1927. Nowadays it’s owned by Miami-Dade Parks & Recreation. There are tours of the estate and fossils found on site, as well as kayak, canoe, and bike rentals. With gorgeous views of Biscayne Bay, it’s well worth an afternoon. Pro tip: There’s a dock at the edge of the property that is open to the public without an admission fee. It’s nicknamed “The People’s Pier.”
