To the immediate north of Downtown Miami, situated directly alongside beautiful Biscayne Bay, is Edgewater. Roughly bound by North 17th Street to the south, North 37th Street to the north, the Florida East Coast Railway and East First Avenue to the west and Biscayne Bay to the east, Edgewater is a primarily residential area marked by a heavy concentration of luxury high-rise towers set along the water.

Essentially the “no-man’s land” of the surrounding downtown area, Edgewater itself doesn’t feature any major attractions or immediately walkable areas, but is situated in a location that allows residents to easily access a number of major areas either by car or, in some cases, on-foot. Greater Downtown to the south, Wynwood and Midtown to the west, and Design District to the north can each be walked to, while further areas such as Brickell, Coconut Grove, and the entirety of Miami Beach are a 10 to 15-minute drive away.

In terms of the immediate area, the defining characteristic is the steady row of high-rise towers overlooking Biscayne Bay. While living options are certainly plentiful in this regard, there are a number of more affordable mid-rises to choose from as well.

Just steps from those towers is the main artery of the city, Biscayne Boulevard. Although the famed street plays host to a mix of retailers in the Edgewater area, you’ll find most of them are high-end furniture stores and low-key restaurants. On the side opposite the towers skirting right along Biscayne Bay is perhaps the area’s lone point of interest, Margaret Pace Park: an 8-acre waterfront park featuring a walking trail, plus a tennis and basketball court. Look for this spot to be teeming with dog walkers and outdoor exercisers alike at all hours of the day. Again, the main takeaway here is that Edgewater is not walkable in the same way its neighbors are. Think of it more as a gateway to other points of interest as opposed to one itself.

In terms of transport, Edgewater unfortunately lies just beyond the service area of Downtown Miami’s Metromover monorail system. However, there are plenty of rent-able scooters along Biscayne Boulevard, which (in addition to bicycles) are the ideal method of transport around the area.

And, as its name suggests, Edgewater is also a small boater’s dream, with multiple access points for kayakers and paddleboarders to launch into Biscayne Bay.

With a breezy, coastal feel – and a markedly more relaxed vibe than its surrounding neighbors – Edgewater is the ideal spot for those in search of a home that doubles as an easy access point to (as well as a safe haven from) Miami’s busier areas.
