Some days you just have to play tourist for the day and enjoy the sites that your own city has to offer. Today was one of those days. So with exploration in mind and a beautiful sunny day we decided to head to Miami. When most think of Miami they probably think of palm trees, beaches and South Beach. But the Miami we went to explore is filled with art -urban graffiti & street art. It was incredible to see how some of the world greatest artists working on graffiti have converged to create street art in Wynwood.
Since we arrived at noon and we were all a bit hungry we headed to Wynwood Kitchen and Bar for some grub. This restaurant which is directly next door to Wynwood walls has an eclectic menu of mostly tapas with a Latin influenced global cuisine. The vibe of the restaurant is artsy and hip, it has some creative drinks and the food which was moderately priced was full of flavor.
Wynwood Kitchen and Bar is not your only option, as a matter of fact the area seems to be a foodies dream with a great variety of places to grab a bite or a drink. If you need to recharge a stop at Panther Coffee where they roast their own beans is a must.
With our bellies full it was time for a walk through Wynwood Walls – here is the walk in pictures.
Outside of Wynwood walls, the streets of Wynwood are also full of graffiti. Here is some of the art you will encounter on the streets.
So next time you are in Miami take a break from the surf and sand and come experience some art and great food in Wynwood.
