The first hotel on the South Florida mainland was located in Coconut Grove, called the Bay View Inn (later known as the Peacock Inn), it was built in 1882, on the site of present-day Peacock Park. The Barnacle Historic State Park also located in Coconut Grove is the oldest house in Miami-Dade County still standing in its original location. It was built in 1891 and was home to Ralph Middleton Munroe who was known as "The Commodore" for being the first commodore and founder of the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club, an American yacht designer and early resident of Coconut Grove.  Modern day yacht clubs such a Biscayne Bay and Coral Reef are fixtures of daily life in the incomparable bayside community.

Important in the history of the aviation industry was the Pan American Seaplane Base located in Coconut Grove.  Dinner Key was a small island in Biscayne Bay, and was joined to the mainland during World War I to provide a training field for the U.S. Navy. After the war, the base was used by non-scheduled commercial flyers, until the Navy facility was destroyed by the 1926 hurricane. In 1930, a newly formed airline company, known as Pan American Airways (Pan Am), symbolized by eagles and globes, acquired the New York-Rio-Buenos Aires Airline which flew twin-engine Commodore flying boats between Miami and Buenos Aires. The former naval air base at Dinner Key was selected by Pan Am as the base for its inter-American operations with the inaugural flight from Dinner Key to Panama taking place on December 1, 1930. Charles Lindbergh, who was a technical advisor to Pan Am, surveyed some of the early air routes. Pan American opened the first hangar in 1931. The first passenger "terminal" at the Dinner Key seaplane base was a houseboat obtained in Havana, Cuba, towed by tugs to Miami and anchored to pilings with barges at each end. That same year expansion of the facilities at Dinner Key was undertaken. During World War II, the Key again served as a base for the U.S. Navy, as well as continuing to serve the needs of international air travelers. This site is now Miami City Hall.
