Aviation Icon Is Part of Coconut Grove’s Colorful History

COCONUT GROVE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Long before the carefree days depicted in ABC’s new television series, Pan Am World Airways made headlines with its innovative flying boat service in the 1930s and ‘40s. Passengers boarded at Coconut Grove, Florida’s famous Dinner Key terminal on Biscayne Bay that now serves as Miami City Hall. The building and waterfront hangars were the main hub for Pan Am’s pioneering seaplane service to the Caribbean and South America.

Today, Coconut Grove is a thriving waterfront village that hosts sailing regattas, one of America's largest art festivals and other colorful events among boutiques, sidewalk cafes and art galleries.
