Few may know that there is a rural enclave on the southern outskirts of the city where you can collect strawberries, see exotic tropical fruit trees, taste guava wine, and enjoy beautiful orchid greenhouses and gardens. 

The rural region is called Redland, named for its red soil. It is full of tradition and home to long-standing locals who are trying to maintain its rustic beauty.

For tourists to Redland, Florida, history and subtropical climate converge to create unforgettable moments that you won't find anywhere else. The Redland is the area around the main entrance to the Everglades National Park, so it's easy to pair a stay in the Redland with a visit to the park or to the Florida Keys just half an hour south of the US 1.

Driving through the Redland, you'll see fruit and vegetables in the hills, ornamental plant and palm tree plantations, and family-owned enterprises such as koi farmers, banana producers, and herbal farmers.

The Redland is the last agricultural region in Miami-Dade and has its own brand: 'Redland Raised'. Farms in the Redland are family owned and some of the most famous are strawberry farms. One strawberry farm has gained fame in another category: cinnamon rolls. The Knaus family has been operating a farm and bakery in Redland for 50 years.

One of the oldest villages of Redlands is Cauley Square Historic Railroad, which grew up around the railroad depot in 1903. Historic houses and residences are now crowded with stores, galleries, and restaurants, all grouped under a canopy of tropical trees. The Tea Room, known for its hot or cold spicy teas, The Aviary Bird Shop, featuring birds screeching, and the Latin Corner, a little yellow hut under the trees that serves Cuban cuisine, is worth a quick shopping visit.

At Fruit and Space Park, you can see edible foods that don't thrive anywhere else in the United States, from 75 kinds of bananas to stuff you've actually never heard of, such as black sapote, eggfruit, and marula. The visitor center has fruits for tasting and guided tours that you do not skip.

Orchids enjoy the atmosphere in South Miami-Dade and the Redland is home to a variety of orchids growers. R. F. Orchids is a visitor's attraction because of its captivating gardens and its award-winning flowers. He adorned his orchid gardens with ancient Burmese temple gongs and 200-year-old Buddha statues from Thailand. In his backyard, there's a fern-rimmed pond with an alligator called Wally and South American pacu fish. His garden tour stimulates all the senses: the cages of colorful parrots, the scent of rare varieties of blooming orchids, the taste of edible orchids, or the tasty wine made from lemongrass and the scorpion that Fuchs invites you to explore.

One of the main attractions for tourists to the Redland is Miami-first Dade's commercial winery, a location with beautiful tropical scenery, waterfalls, and live music on weekends. There are grape-free wines instead of tropical fruits such as mango, guava, avocado, lychee, and passion fruit.
