House Tour

Each year, The Villagers present to the Miami community a tour of exceptional homes that are of outstanding architectural or historic value. The first week in December is a special time when these homes are opened by their owners for viewing by the guests of The Villagers. The house tour has a well-established history of only providing the most extraordinary homes of carefully selected neighborhoods. View Event Details.

Garden Tour

Spring brings a tour of some of Miami’s most beautiful gardens. Many of these gardens are the creation of some of our most famous landscape architects. All reflect the loving care of their owners and spotlight the beauty of foliage and flowers of our special climate. View Event Details.

The Hunt

Once a year The Villagers and their guests gather to compete in a hunt for known historic sites. Our clue makers provide devious and challenging clues that only those most determined and somewhat knowledgeable can decipher. The race is on, and the team with the most cunning (and luck) visits each site to come in first and win the prize. Win or lose, we all celebrate with a party and auction at the end of the hunt.
