The Colorful Walls of Miami’s Wynwood

When I booked my recent cruise, I knew I didn’t want to fly home the day we disembarked. That’s probably my biggest tip for those planning on cruising, always stay an extra day. Other than to relax, I didn’t have any plans, but I did have one place I wanted to finally visit: Wynwood Walls.

The area of Wynwood is covered in beautiful murals and street art, even the sidewalks are covered. It all started with Tony Goldman’s idea to cover old warehouses with art, and so the idea for Wynwood was born in 2009. Since the beginning artists from all over the world have contributed pieces of art to the walls.

As a lover of street art all over the world, I knew I Wynwood would capture my heart, and it did, almost immediately. We wandered around the walls, stopping to take photos and admire the artwork.

Though one wall was clearly the favorite. This does seem to be everyone’s favorite wall, but really, who am I to argue? Plus, it’s the perfect backdrop for some photos.

There’s also a gallery inside the Walls, which displays beautiful works of art and gives the historical background of the area.

The art extends beyond the walls and into the entire neighborhood. We hopped in a gallery and found some cool walls nearby, including one I just had to strike a yoga pose in front of.

There was so much more to see and do in this neighborhood and while we didn’t take the time to stroll down each and every street, since lunch was calling our name, I would love to return and spend an entire day here. There are so many shops, galleries, and restaurants to wander around. Plus, it has a really great vibe, one that just gravitates you toward the area and makes you feel good. If Miami is on an upcoming trip of yours, do yourself a favor, skip the beach for one day, and visit Wynwood.

Pin this for later!

    I loved Wynwood, we didn’t even make it into Wynwood Walls but explored the roads around there.

      The roads are the best! We were lucky and found a spot, so we explored the Walls. But all of the art in the area is so beautiful.
