    My wife and I booked tickets for Wynwood Walls, and I unknowingly booked tickets with a tour. I couldn’t have been happier of my error. It was supposed to be a group tour but turned out it was only my wife and me. We had Glayson as our guide and are so thankful for his time and knowledge. We learned far more through him than we would have with a self-guided tour. He also shared more about the overall art scene in Miami. We’ll definitely be visiting Wynwood Walls again and would highly recommend paying a little extra for a guided tour. Well worth it!

    We were here in Florida three years ago and toured the area. The graffiti in that area is phenomenal. World class. However many of the older murals on the walls are painted over with new paintings which was both exciting and sad. The quality of the works is amazing. Much of it should belong in a museum. Well worth your time to visit and view all the works of art in the neighborhood.

    What is surprising is that many new buildings are being built in the area and taking away some of the old charm.

    Parking is an issue and it has become an expense which three years ago, you could park anywhere for free.

    I would still recommend going. It’s worth your time.

    Went to Miami Heat game. All seats in this arena a good and good eating choices in arena. Live atmosphere during game. They have $20 shuttle that takes you right to the door from Ft. Lauderdale. It leave 1.5 hour before game time and leaves arena 15 minutes after game is over. Parking for shuttle is free.

    Along with Upper Buena Vista just north of it, the Miami Design District dates back to the 1890's when it was a small village, home to cracker's who migrated from Georgia and North Carolina to farm pineapples in Florida. Along with Lemon City and Little River, Upper Buena Vista and the Miami Design District are the oldest settlements in Miami. Many of the homes here date to Florida's land bloom years of the 1920's when the first subdivisions were built.

    Twenty years ago Miami native Craig Robins recognized the potential of this part of Miami and he started purchasing buildings in the neighborhood for the purpose of creating a place with exceptional architecture, design and experiences. L Catterton joined Robins as a partner in 2011 and encouraged luxury brands to move into the Design District. Today there are more than 120 flagship luxury stores in the district along with restaurants, public art, event spaces, museums, and galleries.

    There are four parking garages in the design district. I \have only used the Museum Garage and it is only $3 to park. There is also some limited street parking. I love to come here to nosh, window shop, take pictures, and see free art. It is also a pretty awesome place to people watch. If you are looking for something different to do in Miami, the Design District is full of fun surprises. You can subscribe to the Miami Design District newsletter on their website, follow them on Instagram, or like them on Facebook to stay on top of all the happenings.

    Really enjoyed the market place. Demilo Papi is highly recommended! The line might be long but it's definitely worth the wait. LA Canita was just ok but we gave it 2 stars because the service was horrible. We also enjoyed the Millionaire tour on the Queen Island Tour.

    Such a wonderful place, full of character, culture, aromas, wonderfully friendly people, history, art.....just everything for the soul. As for the food.....yum yum, so tasty, seasoned and cooked with love.
    If you take the Miami bus tours they will drive through here and you can jump off and take a walk, they welcome you, please do stop and see this beautiful part of Miami, you wont be disappointed.

    It was fun walking up and down Calle Ocho. Lots of shops, restaurants, and artwork to look at. You can buy cigars, guayaberas, cuban things, food, snap pics with artwork and check out Domino Park, a park where lots of the elders come chill and play dominos. Fun little spot.

    First time ever to an NFL game, had a blast! The stadium looks great. Easy to get in and find our seats. Friendly staff. People should keep it clean taking their trash after the game. Only downside, had to walk long distance to parking, but it was free.

    We had a BEST DAY EVER FAMILY DAY!! We decided to do the tour and our tour guy Jared was so knowledgeable and guided us on the hiking tour. We were so lucky to have such a great guy for this experience. Because that was what we got a memorable experience.

    Although I didn't go to the art gallery in the Freedom Tower, I was able to appreciate the architecture from outside while taking a Big Bus tour across Miami. If you have an affinity for historical buildings, this one is great!

    Classy area of Miami, waterfront shops and restaurants. This is the spot to get away from south beach and relax in the local area

    We love Gesu Church, it was a wonderful experience to be part of the community. The priests are really good pastors, they are a reflection of God, who teach the true doctrine.
