Everything you need to know about visiting the Wynwood Walls in Miami (2520 NW 2nd Ave, Miami FL 33127).
Launched during Art Basel in 2009, what began as a few commissioned murals to beautify the area has morphed into the city’s only outdoor street art park, featuring more than 40 murals. Some of the world’s most acclaimed artists and muralists have contributed over the years, including Shepard Fairey, Ryan McGuinness, Kenny Scharf, How and Nosm, Faile, Retna, the Date Farmers and Liqen. The best part? Admission is free.
What to expect at the Wynwood Walls
There are really no concepts in Miami that can compare to the Wynwood Walls. It is sort of a walkable outdoor museum, where entire buildings have replaced the usual gallery canvas. The works are impressive in their scale and are reflective of the spunky personality that put Wynwood on the map as Miami's art district. Certain murals have remained the same over the years, but usually—around December for Art Basel—new murals pop up in a matter of days.
Places to eat at the Wynwood Walls
Inside the Wynwood Walls, there are a couple food options. There is the very popular Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, an upscale restaurant that specializes in shareable dishes like the 48 Hour Crispy Pork ($15) and the grilled baby octopus ($10). Portions aren't huge but the food is good. For a quicker, on-the-go option try Jugofresh, a colorful juice shop that serves cold-pressed juices ($11), smoothies ($8–$13) and acai bowls ($9).
The best selfie spots
The Wynwood Walls is the undisputed selfie capital of Miami and chances are you’ll recognize some of the murals from the profile pics in your Facebook feed. Ron English’s “Hulk Boy” is a great option for those looking to strike a pose. Don't be shy about it either. Feel free to snap away. Photos are encouraged and practically required. You get bonus points for creativity.
