Marvel at the beauty of Edgewater, an up-and-coming neighborhood in Miami, Florida.
As the name indicates, Edgewater is a small coastal slice of mainland Miami, a residential community covering about 1.68 square miles.
It lies between Midtown and the Upper East Side to the north and downtown Miami to the south.
Meanwhile, its official eastern border lies a few miles out in the Intracoastal Waterway, as the district also has jurisdiction over Pace Picnic Island, about 3/4 mile offshore.
Since there are multiple north, south, east, and west borders surrounding Edgewater, it’s easiest to look at the map below
It is home to 11,570 residents as of the latest US Census.
Located to the east of Biscayne Boulevard and just far enough away from Downtown Miami to enjoy its own identity, Edgewater is one of the city's most well-kept secrets.
A quiet enclave that is off-the-beaten-path, generally overlooked by tourists, the neighborhood provides a laid-back, nature-oriented yet urban lifestyle with easy access to the Downtown Arts District, the Wynwood Arts District, the Design District, Brickell, and South Beach.
It offers a vibrant social scene despite its lack of traffic and popularity, piquing interest with its many bars, restaurants, and cafes, as well as natural and cultural attractions.
For one, the entire neighborhood is anchored by the expansive and multifaceted Margaret Pace Park, with its winding pathways, mangrove forests, two dog parks, sports activities, including basketball, volleyball, and tennis, and waterfront access for water sports such as kayaking or waterboarding.
The beautiful bayfront park provides an array of outdoor options for nature-themed recreation ideal for young families with children and bohemian-artsy types, as well as areas where dogs and their human companions can get plenty of good, clean exercise. Not to mention, it's also lined with condominium towers along North Bayshore Drive, framing it nicely against the water and making it one of the loveliest spots in Miami.
Are you dreaming of having a picnic on an actual island?
Hop on a charter boat and take a cruise out to Pace Picnic Island, a leafy triangular islet that sits a mile offshore.
With sandy beaches plus manatees and stingrays gliding through the crystal blue water, a visit to Pace can provide a delicious respite from the bustling Miami street life.
The north end of the island has the most spectacular views of the city at sunset.
Don’t expect to have it to yourself on popular holidays, however.
Meanwhile, if shopping is what tickles your fancy, Edgewater's got you covered!
Head to Midtown for all your high-street brand whims, then cross the I-195 and tour Miami’s Design District, a nexus of cultural businesses, including over 130 art galleries, showrooms, fashion boutiques, architects' offices, antique dealerships, restaurants, and bars.
The feast for the eyes and stomach can be easily reached from the Edgewater neighborhood via a short stroll or drive north along NE 2nd Avenue.
Pass under the interstate, and you’ll soon find yourself in this chic little neighborhood!
Talk about being right smack in the middle of art, culture, nature, and shopping-- and everything in between!
