Deering Estate at Cutler has always been one of my favorite places to visit in Miami, Florida; and Deering Estate during their December Winter Wonderland is the very best. Between our wonderful Florida weather during the month and the stunning beauty of this historic property all dressed up for the holidays, it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Open daily, December 1-31, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm (ticket office closes at 4:00 pm).
From their website: Throughout December, visitors can tour the elegant and historic houses as they come alive with holiday accents and decorations created by the District XII Garden Clubs, the Palmetto Bay Garden Club, the Coconut Grove Garden Club, Mega Flowers Miami, J.R.E. Lee Opportunity School, the Florida Association of Family and Consumer Sciences – District J, and Venturing Crew 314. The garden club members, students, and teachers have used over 600 yards of ribbon, 900 feet of garland, and thousands of handmade ornaments of various themes to decorate the Richmond Cottage and Stone House. Guests can explore the beautifully landscaped main grounds and historic buildings at their own leisure or they can enjoy one of the Estate’s guided house tours held daily at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm. Tours of the natural areas are also held daily at 12:30 pm. Tours of the historic buildings and natural areas are offered by one of the Estate’s Interpretive and Education staff members and are free with admission.
The holiday decorating effort is an annual tradition and is a special project of the District XII Garden Clubs, which includes 26 branches in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties. The Deering Estate Foundation, Inc. and the Deering Estate at Cutler would like to thank the District XII Garden Clubs, the Palmetto Bay Garden Club, the Coconut Grove Garden Club, Mega Flowers Miami, J.R.E. Lee Opportunity School 4-H, the Florida Association of Family and Consumer Sciences – District J, and Venturing Crew 314 for their efforts in decorating the Estate for the holidays
