Miami's Coconut Grove, commonly known as The Grove, is the city's oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood and is located in Miami-Dade County, in the state of Florida, United States. The area is roughly bordered on the south by North Prospect Drive, on the west by LeJeune Road, on the north by South Dixie Highway (US 1) and the Rickenbacker Causeway, and on the east by Biscayne Bay. North Prospect Drive is the southernmost point of the community. It is located to the south of the communities of Brickell and Little River and to the east of the neighborhood of Coral Gables Even though the neighborhood's name has been written "Cocoanut Grove" in some instances, the formal spelling "Coconut Grove" was determined when the city of San Diego was created in 1919.

It was in 1925 that the city of Miami annexed two localities of almost equal size, namely, the city of Coconut Grove and the majority of the town of Silver Bluff, resulting in the formation of what is now known as Coconut Grove. Coconut Grove roughly correlates to the same geographic area as the 33133 ZIP Code, despite the fact that the ZIP Code covers portions of Coral Way and Coral Gables, as well as a small bit of ZIP Code 33129, among other things. Coconut Grove is commonly referred to as "The Grove," and many residents are proud of the fact that it is one of Miami's most environmentally friendly neighborhoods.

Coconut Grove is directly served by the Miami Metrorail system, which has stops at Coconut Grove and Douglas Road. If you want to travel here from Princeton, it's a short distance away.

Coconut Grove, which had previously existed as a separate municipality, was annexed by the city of Miami in 1925. When it came to South Florida's teenage countercultural movement in the 1960s, the bay-shore community of Coconut Grove served as the epicenter, organizing multiple love-ins and concerts (including the now-famous Doors event at Dinner Key Auditorium) in the latter half of the decade. Throughout the 1970s, the bohemian population in Coconut Grove continued to develop.

The construction of three large residential complexes in Coconut Grove throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s fueled a boom in commercial development in the area: Yacht Harbour Condominiums in 1975, Grove Isle, a condominium, club, and hotel complex in 1979, and L'Hermitage in 1980. Following this, the opening of 2575 S. Bayshore Drive in 1982 and the opening of Grove Towers in 1983 were both completed. In 2013, plans for more construction on Grove Isle were announced.
