Jim Moore of Miami Tour Company Interviewed by Miami Today

Learn why heritage and history attracts visitors to Coconut Grove
August 16, 2014 By Gus in Miami: Travel News


If you get a chance to pick-up a copy of the Miami Today newspaper this week, make sure to read Jim Moore’s interview in the paper. Jim is the Director of Operations at Miami Tour Company, the sister site of Miami Beach 411. In the interview by Nina Lincoff, Jim discusses why Coconut Grove should not be overlooked by visitors, and why it’s important for us to stop there on The Original Miami Bus Tour.

Unfortunately, Miami Today does not post all the stories in the newspaper online, so I included highlights from the article below:

For Jim Moore, a certified heritage guide with Miami Tour Co., a bus tour through Coconut Grove reveals many interesting bits of Greater Miami history, starting with the very building blocks of the area.

“The Grove is the first place on our tour that you really get to start seeing the limestone. You can point out that resource and show how it was used, ” Mr. Moore said.

The Miami Tour offered by MTC consists of six stops along the bus tour, the longest of which is spent in the Grove because of the variety of restaurant and walking opportunities. Highlights of the Grove include the Barnacle, the Cohen Murder House, Silver Bluff, the Pan Am marina, the Kampong, and the Plymouth Congressional Church, Mr. Moore said.

“I don’t think many people come to Miami saying they have to see Coconut Grove; they don’t know what it is,” Mr. Moore said. “But we give some historical perspective along the way, and then people begin to appreciate that there is more to Miami than South Beach.”
