I found calle ocho to be nothing special. I guess the fun is at night. I went after spending the day at the beach. I saw some Cuban restaurants but I was expecting more.

We happened to visit Calle ocho on last fri of the month, it was Viernes cultural evening from 7-11pm! Wow what an evening. I loved it. It has lots of vendors, belly dancing, spanish singing shows in domino park, old heritage cars, street gallos, latin arts exhibits, and above all great cuban food n culture.

I don't visit Calle Ocho regularly, but when I have out of town company, I find it's a great opportunity to take them to Calle Ocho. Although Calle Ocho and Little Havana are not inhabited by as many Cubans anymore; There are still a few places where you can get the nostalgia of how it was in the 60's and... More

It is a fun area to see as is all of miami. Versailles restaurant is right before you get into calle ocho area and that is a place you should definitely go if... More

When I travel to Miami, I always go by "Calle Ocho", a lot of Cuban Nostalgia there, from El Rey de Las Fritas, Casa de los Jugos, Domino Park and Cuba Cigar company which the Bello family owns, they will explain how the cigars are made from blending to actually wrapping them right before your eyes, great place, I feel...

The Cuban neighborhood is just 2 or 3 blocks with few things to see or do. There are restaurants, Cuban cigars shops, an art gallery and the Maximiano Gomez park where men meet to play domino. 1h is more than enough to check it. People are very welcoming.

Don't miss this slice of Cuba Miami style. Check out Calle Ocho on the last Friday of any month. Viernes Culturales is a destination event. Be prepared to dance, stroll or salsa your way through a colorful crowd. Grab a game in Domino Park. Take a free historical walking tour with Dr. Paul George (these start at 7 pm and... More

That's about it. 8th Street runs from downtown Miami all the way west until you get to Naples. It goes through a lot of neighborhoods. I would not consider 8th Street a destination.
