Homestead is located in Miami-Dade County and is known for its historical contribution to the development of South Florida as it served as a major hub for Henry Flagler’s railroad starting in 1903. With lush tree lined streets and beautiful natural settings, Homestead has something for everyone.
Just twenty minutes north of the Florida Keys, Homestead now has a population over 62,000 people but still retains the charming small town feel. With diverse cultures and heritages, Homestead is situated between two national parks, Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park. Because of this beautiful setting, visitors from all over the world are drawn to the unique character of this tropical paradise.
After 2001, gated communities started popping up all over the east side of Homestead. In addition to the well known Keys Gate community, new communities such as Isles at Oasis, Waterstone, and Malibu Bay make up a large portion of the new population. These newer communities include gated entrances, community pools and clubhouses and roving security.
