Once abandoned, now the most buzzing district of Miami.
Wynwood is known as the world's most massive outdoor gallery, however unbeknownst to many, it wasn't always that way, especially during the neighbourhood's earlier years. What in the 1970s was once a neglected industrial land housing scary abandoned warehouses, now serves as a huge open-air canvas proudly on display for everyone to see. It features both local and international street and graffiti artists through their creative and uniquely drawn murals, with over 200 street murals, which is more than any other city in the world, an affirmation that street art won't ever be illegal here. Instead, it is embraced, honed, and featured. It’s wonderful, on the second Saturday night of every month, to stroll around while the area hosts an "ArtWalk" where all art galleries and studios open their doors for public viewing in the most walkable neighbourhood in Miami. Wynwood hosts also the most low-key and funky places to hang out. Once considered Miami’s original “Little Puerto Rico” or “El Barrio” you’ll still find people flaunting their Boricua pride with tasseled flags on their rearview mirrors or salsa blasting from their front porches.
Wynwood is a place dedicated to the pursuit of fun and pleasure.
