One of my favorite things about Miami is that the city is always in motion. It’s like New York in the sense that stores and restaurants are opening and closing, and parts of the city can be transformed in a matter of months. Of course we can always count on South Beach hotspots like Liv to be drawing a well-heeled crowd, but what makes for better people watching, and better conversation, is when the artists of Miami get together and create something. And that leads us to Wynwood.
With street art comparable to Berlin’s Kreuzberg and over 70 galleries, Wynwood is booming and blooming in midtown Miami. On the second Saturday of the month, galleries open their doors to the masses to share art and culture during ArtWalk. Similar to a massive block party, DJ’s and food trucks lined the streets as the masses set out to take in the scene. After checking out some of the awesome street art in Europe, it was refreshing seeing some in my hometown. And after taking in the art (and culture) there are enough cafes, bars, and dance parties happening right around the corner.
