About 3 years ago, it seemed like everyone and their mother on Instagram was going wall crawling to Wynwood Arts District in this Miami Florida neighborhood. This amazing outdoor public museum just blew up thanks to this platform. It’s hard to believe that just 10 years ago, this area was a collection of abandoned warehouses, until someone had a vision. That person was Tony Goldman and now his daughter Jessica Goldman, who is continuing his legacy. His vision was to create open air galleries, for everyone to enjoy. It started with Wynwood Walls and it grew from there into an eclectic collection of outdoor art by world famous muralists. The Goldmans are responsible for revitalizing SoHo New York, South Beach as well as Wynwood Walls. It’s no wonder Tony Goldman is called an art visionary. It seems that this family just knows what people like!
I will give you 4 very good compelling reasons why you must visit the Wynwood Arts District right now!

It’s one of the biggest graffiti installations in the world.
Why wouldn’t you want to enjoy that? So how large is this the Wynwood Arts District area now? It’s 50 city blocks of amazing outdoor art! When I learned about it, I was one of those people that went running down there. I dragged my two kids and my husband’s niece and nephew with us. After about 45 minutes of walking around, they were all done! They didn’t want any more pictures!, but I convinced them to stay for another hour. I loved it so much, I could have gone for three more hours!
There is so much to do.
The area is pedestrian-friendly, in addition to taking photos in every single mural, you will have fun in many hip art galleries, museums, retail stores, bars and restaurants. We had an awesome time, and although I didn’t have time to go shopping or drinking, we ate at the Wynwood Diner, which it’s still there, and their burgers are delicious!
Art is everywhere
We are definitely overdue to comeback to see everything that has changed and give you a better guide. But for now, these are the walls I loved the most. One of my personal favorites, is this wall on the side of Bunnie Cakes Shop, which is about a mile away, but I absolute loved it! You will also enjoy The Bass Museum of Art mini Magic Mountain installation outside the museum. If you go around Art Basel, you will find amazing art related events and exhibitions.
The area is changing fast
There are no hotels inside Wynwood Walls yet, but that may change very soon as the area is developing rapidly. There are plans for about 700 residential apartments in addition to businesses and restaurants. In the next five years, it won’t be what it is now. I just hope that it is still has the charm that it does today. If you still haven’t visited the Wynwood Arts Districs, I recommend that you add it to your bucket list. You will absolutely love it!
