Coming back from our Carnival Cruise to the Bahamas, my sister and I had time to kill before going home so we visited the Wynwood Art District. With her being a photographer and me wanting to visit since Blogalicious weekend, it was the perfect place for us to meet up with my friend who was also in Miami for the weekend. If you’re planning a trip to Miami, here are some fun things to do in Wynwood.
Take a Photo Walk
One of the best free things to do in Wynwood is to take a photo walk. The cool thing is most of the buildings within the area have graffiti murals. If you love taking photos of and with street art, this is the place for you. By the end of the trip, my entire SD card was completely maxed out. I was tired of taking photos but still managed to get a few shots around here.
Lunch at Wynwood Diner
By the early afternoon, I needed to get out of the sun so we stopped at a local diner for lunch. I had an order of crab cakes while my sister ate a side of french fries. We fell in love with the diner’s decor, showcasing a reading nook and unique tables, chairs, and lighting in the back room. Here are some other places to eat in Miami by neighborhood including the Wynwood area.
Visit The Wynwood Walls
Attracting visitors from around the world, Miami’s Wynwood Art District is one of the best venues to see street art. The Wynwood Walls was established in 2009 by Tony Goldman as an outdoor museum of international street art. Since the first year, the area has sparked the creation of graffiti murals in the area. Wynwood Walls is open to the public and free of charge.
*Bonus* Take a Food Tour
I fell in love with food tours in Marrakesh and I WISH I knew about Miami Culinary Tours before visiting. Not only do they have daily food and art tours in the Arts District, they offer tours in South Beach, Little Havana, and Miami City. I’ll definitely book on next time.
