Miami may be famous for it’s sandy beaches and sunshiny summer days, but what will really take your breath away in this city is it’s art district. If you are going to Miami, I strongly suggest making Wynwood your number one priority! You will not be disappointed.

First, head to the Wynwood Gardens! It’s free to enter and a good place to begin.

However, while the Wynwood Gardens have some excellent pieces, don’t make that your only stop. Be sure you walk around the main streets and back allies.ย For blocks upon blocks you will find inspiring murals that cover every wall from top to bottom.

If you are lucky you may even catch some artists at work! (Just be sure to ask before you take any photographs of them. Shout out to the two artists who gave me the go ahead.)

No matter where you stroll, or what your art preferences are you will most definitely find a mural that catches your eye. There were some I did not want to walk away from.

The three above were my absolute favorites. I was blown away by the use of color and detail. I have no doubt you will find your favorite(s) too.

Of course, there are SO many more paintings waiting for you down here. However, it would have taken me a few days to stop and take a photo of every single one. Regardless, I don’t want to spoil it for you, you will have to see it on your own!

Let me know how your adventures go on the streets of the Wynwood Art District!
