What It's Like

Once a hippie alcove, lively Coconut Grove is now home to rowdy sports bars, colorful shops, and championship regattas. Local college students and endless street fairs help maintain its eccentric undertow -- most notably during the outrageous King Mango Strut parade, held on the last Sunday of every year.
