Miami Shores

Miami Shores is a village in Miami-Dade County just south of North Miami and north of downtown Miami on Florida's East Coast. Miami Shores has been in existence longer than many of its neighbors; despite its proximity to downtown Miami, the community feels quite suburban, though the energy of the city can be felt here as well.

This 100-year-old Florida community is a charming village for young and old residents alike, with many Mediterranean Revival- and Spanish Colonial Revival-style houses with gardens. Florida International University and Barry University are located here, and three top medical centers are nearby. 

Despite its suburban charm, you'll find plenty to do in Miami Shores and within a few miles of its borders. Arch Creek Park, an intimate park formed around a 40-foot natural limestone bridge over Arch Creek was designated as a Florida State Historical Preserve. Park naturalists run tours that introduce visitors to native birds, animals and trees in the area. The park also offers a beautiful butterfly garden and Saturday nature walks. The Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) is dedicated to showing the work of contemporary masters and new artists. Miami Shores Country Club will satisfy your sporty side, offering golfing on an 18-hole championship course known for its sub-tropical vegetation. The club also has a lighted driving range and a lounge and grill with a popular Sunday brunch and cool Friday night jazz in the lounge. Neighborhood restaurants offer everything from quick snacks to fine dining, with many more a short drive away in North Miami and Miami. 

Take I-95 south and you're a few minutes away from windsurfing in Key Biscayne, clubbing in South Beach and enjoying the sun and surf of Fisher Island. You can reach Miami Shores through Miami International Airport or Fort Lauderdale International Airport. The village also is close to the Port of Miami, home base for the Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines.
