One of our mottos at VISIT FLORIDA is, "Been there, haven't done that."
In Miami, I've enjoyed plenty of South Beach sunrises and sipped my fair share of mojitos. But in all my visits to South Florida, I had never experienced Miami's historic Overtown neighborhood.
- After your tour, settle in for a huge meal at Jackson Soul Food. The Overtown eatery is a destination for locals, tour groups and celebs alike; NBA star Dwyane Wade is a regular. The portions are enough to satisfy a giant basketball player, and the prices are small enough for us mere mortals.
- The Folklife Fridays Fair brings food vendors, artisans and live entertainment to Overtown. The free event takes place on the first Friday of every month from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ninth Street Mall.
