City of Homestead

Homestead information

Homestead was incorporated in 1913 and is the second oldest city in Miami-Dade County next to the city of Miami. It is located approximately 35 miles (56 km) southwest of Miami, and 25 miles (40 km) northwest of Key Largo

Homestead is adjacent to two national parks. Ten miles west of Homestead is a wealth of natural beauty: Everglades National Park. The Everglades are home to vast mangrove forests and watery saw grass plains. The Everglades are truly a subtropical wilderness that shelters alligators, ibis, eagles, manatees, and panthers. East of the city is Biscayne National Park encompassing the bay, barrier islands, and coral reefs. Just south of the city are the Florida Key’s with an abundance of recreational activities.
