Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Pinecrest’s dining blends gourmet with laid back. Locals enjoy the unassuming whimsy of Whisck
, who cook feel-good, home-style meals with high quality, organic, and local ingredients. Where else in Miami Beach will you be greeted with a ‘Hey Y’all’ and an Old Fashioned on Whiskey Thursdays? Looking for a more casual community hot spot? Check out Shaddai’s Fine Lebanese Cuisine
After an afternoon of delicacy, should you find yourself looking for world-class shopping destinations, be sure to visit the Dadeland Mall
, Miami’s iconic shopping center. If outdoor and open-air shopping seems to fit your vibe more, of course being in Pinecrest, then The Falls
is a great alternate option. The Falls has it all: dining, entertainment, a fresh market, and a cinema.
Things to Do
Pinecrest’s ample green space offers so many outdoor activities for residents of all ages. From Coral Pine
, a nine-acre park with a recreation center, to Flagler Grove park
(with lit youth soccer fields), Pinecrest has the most space and parks of any other neighborhood in the Miami area. Of course, residents will always love the beach, but Veterans Wayside Park
and its beautiful freshwater lake are the perfect places to spend the day with the family. Nearby is the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden
, world-famous for its rare tropical plants.
Support local artists, artisans, and purveyors of local food and produce at the Pinecrest Farmers Market, held on Sundays from 9 AM until 2 PM near the Pinecrest Gardens
downtown. Pinecrest Gardens is Pinecrest’s premier recreation with more amenities than one may be used to seeing at a local park. Be sure to visit the gardens for the Night of Lights
throughout the holiday season. During the summer months, the shaded pathways along the gardens are the perfect way to beat the heat in the summer. Only a stone's throw away from the gardens downtown, you’ll find Zoo Miami
, an excellent destination for all ages!
