Old Cutler Road

This picturesque road shaded by towering banyan trees and flanked by gorgeous homes (and few traffic lights) is a beautiful spot for a ride on a hot day. Start at Cocoplum Circle on the edge of Coconut Grove and Coral Gables (plug “Cartagena Park” into your GPS). You can leave your car and follow the road as far down as South Dade. You can link up to Deering Estate or Homestead Bayfront Park if you want to turn it into a full-day adventure. You better be comfortable with cars, though – this two-lane road doesn’t leave much spare room.
