Romantic Things to Do: Teeming with natural, archaeological and historical appeal, every visit to the Deering Estate proves endlessly engaging. Excavations at the bayfront compound originally owned by Charles Deering (whose brother James built the infamous Vizcaya property) have uncovered the remains of prehistoric animals, and evidence suggests that Paleo-Indians were here more than 10,000 years ago. Historic buildings also distinguish the 420-acre property � the 1922 Stone House, Richmond Cottage and 19th-century Richmond Hall. For an altogether different perspective of the estate, reserve a spot on the weekend canoe tour. Deering also has a strong commitment to community and the arts and frequently host events ranging from food and art festivals to lectures and even weddings.
