“Only if you're interested drive by shootings!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I've been a resident of Miami since 1989. LITTLE HAITI IS A VERY BAD AND DANGEROUS NEIGHBORHOOD!!! Folks, this is the worst neighborhood in Miami, most of the violent and gang crime that happen in Miami happen here. I don't even suggest you drive through this area! A couple of reviews here say "Crimes are and can happen anywhere" and "Don't believe the hype about high crime". Folks, I don't know where this guy went, but there are NO decent parts of Little Haiti. It's dirty, dangerous, very high in crime and there is absolutely nothing to see here... This is not like Harlem in NY where it's a rough area, but has awesome architecture and a rich history. This is a ghetto shanty town. Nothing more, Nothing less.

“Not for Tourists!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

As a 64 year old, born in Miami. Stay Away even on the adjacent roads including Biscayne Blvd. Don't stop even for coffee. Keep items in your trunk out of sight. I speak from experience and as a victim. Yes crime happens everywhere but more often here.

“Cultural Life...becoming the melting pot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Do not believe the hype about high crime! Crimes are and can happen anywhere, One must be careful anywhere you go.You must experience for yourself the growing cultural life and arts entertainment. Places to be is Little Haiti Cultural Center during Big Night in Little Haiti a free night concert by Rhythm Foundation. The cultural center provides on going classes, children program and performances from different organizations and individual artists. The businesses' storefronts have been remodeled. Churchill Pub is not the only place, there is the Little Haiti/Little River "Sannon" Park and a few nice restaurants. Near by neighborhoods to the east is Morningside and south is the Miami Design District, Midtown and Miami Design District.

“Not somewhere you want to be if you are a tourist”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This place should not be listed as a tourist destination.
It's a neighborhood.
Some good people and some very bad.
Not a safe place to visit.
