About Vizcaya Museum and Gardens:

Vizcaya is considered one of the biggest must-see attractions for visitors to Miami. It was built as a winter vacation home by industrialist James Deering in 1916. The main house gives you a peek into the lives of the super-wealthy during the 1920's, and the gardens are among the most grand and beautiful you will ever see. Don’t miss it!
