The Wynwood Arts District, named one of America's best hipster neighborhoods by Forbes Magazine, is like no other area in Miami -- or anywhere for that matter.
Developers transformed once lifeless warehouse buildings into a vibrant outdoor museum, featuring giant walls of graffiti-style murals. The formerly abandoned streets are now bustling with activity, drawing artists, visitors and hipsters alike.
So I teamed up with friend and fellow Miami journalist Shayne Benowitz to showcase Wynwood Art District for a new travel video produced by SPARK for VISIT FLORIDA.
Take a peek:
The centerpiece of the neighborhood is the collection of artwork at Wynwood Walls, featuring murals by world-renowned street artists. Marité Iglesias, arts manager for Goldman Properties, gave Shayne and me a tour of the current collection of wall art in Wynwood Art District.
Unlike at most museums, you can actually go up and touch the art -- feel the texture and analyze the depth of the colors up close.
What are you waiting for? Get out there and explore this gem of a neighborhood for yourself. It's like nowhere else.
