Pinewood Cemetery - October 21, 11am
Want to get into the Halloween spirit? Join us for a ride to the oldest cemetery south of the Miami River, and the final resting place of many of Dade County’s pioneer settlers.

Did you know that the Biltmore Hotel was a V.A. Hospital where General Eisenhower himself stayed for bursitis treatment?

Join us for this historical tour, including a stop at the Biltmore. *Veterans are free!
