History on the Water

Stiltsville is a group of wooden stilt houses located one mile south of Cape Florida on the edge of Biscayne Bay. The exact date of the first stilt house is not known, but sometime in the 1920s or 1930s, the first one popped up allegedly to facilitate gambling and drinking toward the end of the prohibition era.

Today Stiltsville is a premier boating destination and offers a beautiful, historical, amazing, and awesome experience. The houses, beach, and docks are members only, so unfortunately you won't be able to experience the beauty of the houses unless you know someone who knows someone.
