Vizcaya Museum and Gardens


One of the Northerners who took an interest in Miami during the 1920s boom was Chicago industrialist James Deering, who built his 34-room, neoclassical winter mansion on Biscayne Bay. It’s as close to a palace as you’ll find in America and has welcomed the world’s notables, including Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and Boris Yeltsin. The mansion is only part of the draw: The 10-acre estate includes gardens that are equally attractive.
