Wynwood is a unique and simply fascinating art neighborhood in Miami. I lived just outside Wynwood for a month, and I truly enjoyed the district’s vibe and ambiance.

Not just because of the Wynwood Walls art center but also because of the entire neighborhood. What started out as a small community for dedicated artists is now the home of an incredible gathering of street art inside and outside of Wynwood Walls.

The street art in Wynwood is always changing, so overnight, you might find that new murals have replaced old ones while you slept – making this an ever-changing living art exhibition.

The Wynwood Foor and Art Tour starts at Coyo Taco, a famous and very small taco restaurant in Wynwood with indoor and outdoor seating.
