Best things to do in Wynwood
What is it? An outdoor gallery of world-class murals in Wynwood. Crowds are flowing in and out of this free display all day, making it the area’s most popular (and busiest) attraction.
Why go? Despite crowds and gluttonous selfie-snapping, the Wynwood Walls is absolutely worth the trip. Murals are what made Wynwood famous, and you won’t find a more impressive collection in the country than here.
What is it? An art warehouse so big it might as well have its own area code. Located on the western edge of Wynwood, this 45,000-square-foot space is full of bold and impressive paintings, sculptures and video installations.
Why go? Oddly enough, art isn’t really the main draw in Wynwood anymore. But at the Margulies Collection, you can pay homage to the area’s roots and truly get lost among the sprawling collection.
What is it? Wynwood Yard is a cultural hub in Wynwood. At night, look for live music onstage and throughout the day enjoy a tasty selection of food trucks and a full bar.
Why go? Once you arrive at the Wynwood Yard, you really don’t have to leave. It has (and of great quality, we might add) food, entertainment, drinks and a cool atmosphere. It’s like a Wynwood sampler platter.
What is it? The original Wynwood brewery. This low-key tap room is home to some of Miami’s most famous beers and board games.
Why go? Because this could be the start of your very own Wynwood brewery crawl. Pace yourself, because from here you still have to hit up Concrete Beach Brewery, J. Wakefield Brewing and Veza Sur—all within walking distance.
What is it? A bar crawl that moves around on a huge, 15-person bike. Drinking is very encouraged. Pedaling is technically optional if you have strong-legged friends.
Why go? Loud and just ever so slightly obnoxious, Cycle Party is still a damn good time because, well, is it possible to have a bad time drinking on a huge bike/bar with 14 of your closest friends? If you answered yes, perhaps it’s time to find new friends?
What is it? Welcome to Miami’s coolest indie theater, which is right at home in Wynwood. Find limited-run and indie flicks here as well as local film festivals and events.
Why go? O Cinema is committed to expanding Miami’s cultural minds, whether through lifting up local talent or exposing fans to movies they won’t find anywhere else in the city. Rest assured, money spent here is going to some great peeps.
What is it? A yoga studio and cafe that offers refuge from Wynwood’s bustle. You can drop in for some yoga and meditation or grab a vegan power lunch that’ll even have carnivores drooling.
Why go? Though some know it as a yoga studio, Love Life Cafe actually boasts what just might be the best vegan food in Miami, with tons of flavor packed into vegan burgers, pizza and burritos.
What is it? A good way to cover more ground while exploring Wynwood’s street art. This buggy will scoot you along for a one-hour ride through the arts district.
Why go? Visiting Wynwood in the brutal heat of summer? Maybe this is the way to go if you want to see a lot of Wynwood. Otherwise, you’ll be drenched in sweat before you make it one block.
What is it? Every trendy neighborhood in the country has to have an art walk and Wynwood is no different. Except this one, taking place on the second Saturday of each month, gets big—really big.
Why go? It is, admittedly, less about art these days than it is about drinking, food trucks and bouncing from bar to bar—but it’s still a good day to see Wynwood at peak buzzing.
What is it? A way to both see and taste Wynwood for a visitor who may need a little guidance. This tour will give you the neighborhood’s food and art highlights.
Why go? Because Wynwood can be a little intimidating for the outsider. There’s a lot to see and do—and this tour will keep you on track (and full) with five different tastings.
