Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Miami,
the Coconut Grove neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Coconut Grove neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Coconut Grove is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: People
A majority of the adults in the Coconut Grove neighborhood
are wealthy and educated executives. They own stately
homes that tend to maintain high real estate appreciation rates. Their
upper-level careers keep them busy, but allow them to live comfortably.
If you're an executive and want to keep similar company, consider settling

neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and families with school-aged children.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 0.7% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Coconut Grove neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
Also, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's

earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
98.6% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.

Coconut Grove is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in

Cuban and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 13.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 2.6% have Brazilian ancestry.
Coconut Grove is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily

than 98.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Coconut Grove

One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
