Homestead Florida is a small community located at the southern-most tip of the state, south of Miami and at the entrance to the Florida Keys. Homestead enjoys a tropical climate with days filled with sunshine and warm breezes, and it serves as the gateway to many other popular Florida attractions, including the spectacular Everglades National Park. With an abundance of activities for the whole family including an underwater park, alligator farm, Homestead has small town charm combined with big city advantages. Biscayne Bay National Park is also located here with scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, fishing and other activities. Located within Biscayne Park are the longest stretch of mangrove trees left on the east coast of Florida, clear shallow waters and a spectacular living coral reef. With so much to offer and being at the crossroads of Tropical South Florida, it’s little wonder Homestead has become an increasingly desirable place to visit and to live. There is no place else in the country where you can enjoy tranquil lagoons and sandy beaches, or see such rare wildlife as Florida panthers, alligators and water birds of every kind. This is how the local Chamber of Commerce describes their city, “the perfect combination of rustic charm and big-city opportunities…Homestead is a popular destination for visitors…expect a majority of sunny days and a comfortable average temperature of 75 degrees.”

Homestead’s economy is growing each year, attracting new businesses and a growing culture and arts scene. The Homestead/Miami Speedway and the Homestead Sports Complex are also located here. Just a few miles to the north is the city of Miami, the “Gateway to the Americas,” which offers many international tourist attractions. See the glitz and glamour of South Beach, the artsy community of Coconut Grove and the Cuban flavor given this city by its’ many immigrants. The Florida Keys consists of a chain of islands connected by 42 bridges. It’s one of the most unique places on earth and offers natural beauty and unparalleled excitement. The same holds true for the Everglades, the largest remaining subtropical wilderness areas in the continental United States, and the only ecosystem of its kind in the entire world. You don’t have to leave the town of Homestead to have a great time, either. Their Main Street downtown is filled with shops and activities, including several special events all year long, such as Friday Fest, Cinco de Mayo and the Fourth of July celebrations. Another attraction in Homestead is the historic Seminole Theater that was built in 1921 as a silent movie house. As of 2004, an effort was underway to restore and reopen this historic theater. Homestead is the perfect place to base a south Florida vacation for those who wish to experience Miami and the other nearby attractions, but stay someplace with a warmer, cozier “hometown” feel. The town of Homestead is growing by leaps and bounds each year, and is a small town with a lot to offer both tourists and residents alike.
