Welcome to Homestead!

Set on the southern tip of Florida, approximately 30 mi (48 km) south of Miami, this small, sunny city radiates small-town charm and is surrounded by subtropical wilderness with Everglades National Park to the west, Biscayne National Park to the east and the Florida Keys to the south. Founded by homesteaders and railroad workers at the turn of the 20th century, Homestead is Miami-Dade County's second oldest city and its early days are remembered and cherished at historic sites such as the Florida Pioneer Museum and the nostalgic Seminole Theatre.

Visitors flock to Homestead for its outdoors lifestyle; diving, snorkeling, boating, kayaking and fishing are especially popular activities on Biscayne Bay and in Biscayne National Park. Nature lovers are lured by the area's unique natural environment and wildlife in both Biscayne and Everglades national parks, the latter of which holds status as a World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve and Wetland of International Importance and is home to endangered species such as the Florida panther and American crocodile. Other special Homestead attractions include the Everglades Alligator Farm (with a population of approximately 2,000 alligators), Homestead Miami Speedway (host to exciting NASCAR racing series), the one-of-a-kind Fruit and Spice Park, and the mysterious Coral Castle Museum.
