Must-see in Miami: Wynwood Art District


Once a part of Miami where neglected warehouses and rundown spaces characterized the hood, Wynwood Art District has gone over a complete transformation and is now one of the hippest parts of the city. The area is booming, especially resonating with a younger and hipster crowd. The old factories and deserted warehouses are nowadays home to eclectic bars and restaurants, art shops, and galleries. But what really draws in crowds of tourists, are the open-air street-art installations and edgy art murals dispersed through the neighbourhood. It’s like walking in an open-air museum packed with novice and popular street artists’ work. Above all it’s raw, sometimes grungy, a narrative of contemporary life and emotions, and eclectic.

Wynwood Walls expo

At the Wynwood Walls exposition you will find the most of the 60+ walls grouped together. These walls are also under supervision and some of them protected. International artists display their finest here. However do flock into the rest of the streets between North 36th Street, North 20th Street, I-95  and Northeast First Avenue because you will be surprised how many untouched art you will find. I was in fact pretty surprised that folks respected the public murals and didn’t tag or spoil them.

Eat in Wynwood

The best way to get a taste of Wynwood’s restaurant life is by taking a Miami Culinary Tour. From juicy burgers to Puerto Rican flavours, Wynwood might become the next foodie favourite in the city. The tour takes you to the following restaurants:

  • Wynwood Kitchen and Bar
  • R House
  • Jimmy’z Kitchen
  • Fireman Derek’s World Famous Pies
  • Made in Italy Gourmet

Also try a healthy drink at JugoFresh. This grab-and-go sort of juicery makes shakes and juices that are 100% natural without chemical additions or sugar. I loved the green interior!
