HISTORIC GOOD TIME
The Deering Estate is more than a historic home. In recent years, through engaging programming,
the venue has become a destination for unique cultural experiences.
TEXT BY CECILIA DUBON SLESNICK
Originally built by Charles Deering, the brother of Vizcaya owner, James Deering, the home was a reflection of his passion for the arts
and nature. Today, the space is a cultural center for Southeast Miami-Dade County and boasts nature hikes, art exhibitions, festivals
and performances year-round. While some cultural organizations take a much-needed break during the summer months, the Deering
Estate keeps their programming going. It’s a perfect destination for families or a great spot for a romantic or adventurous date. This
summer you can head down for programs such as Sunrise Photography, Full Moon Vinyasa Yoga, Fee-Free P.L.A.Y. Day, Butterfly
Walks and their wildly popular Cabaret Concerts; DeeringEstate.org.
