What areas to visit in Miami and what you can enjoy in each of them.

The great city of Miami is known for its pleasant weather, fabulous beaches, and the influence of its international population. It's divided into several neighborhoods, areas, and districts.

Below is a list of 5 neighborhoods you should not miss, and a summarized description of each one of them.

Sunny Isles

Often referred to as the Florida Riviera, it is a beach community with a relaxed atmosphere and a racially mixed population. You can find everything, from 50's beachfront motels to luxury apartment towers and hotels.

Little Havana

This small neighborhood is located in downtown Miami and is the Cuban neighborhood, the place where immigrants settled in the years following Castro's revolution. The main street is known as Calle Ocho (SW Eighth Street) and is the heart of the place.

Here, you can enjoy authentic Cuban food, handmade cigars, aromatic coffee, and Latino rhythms. In Maximo Gomez Park, you can see some people who meet daily to play dominoes, talk about politics, and share stories.

Little Haiti

This other ethnic neighborhood has art galleries, Haitian bookstores and music shops, and the Cultural Center, where dance and theater shows are performed. A bronze statue of General Toussaint Louverture, the father of Haitian independence, is located northeast of 2nd Avenue and 62nd Street in the heart of "La Petite Haiti."

Design District

As its name suggests, this is the design district, the place where the city's creatives live and work. It is an area full of art galleries, graphic design studios, workshops, decoration stores, antique stores, and even some innovative restaurants. All of those stores can be located between North Miami Avenue and 2nd street.
