Wynwood Walls: 4 Things You Can’t Miss

Wynwood

Wynwood Walls is an outdoor graffiti area located south of the Miami’s Design District. Around 1950, it was an industrial and ghetto area known as Little San Juan by the large number of Puerto Ricans who lived there. Over time, many of the industrial buildings were abandoned and artists from around the world have shaped the place into one of the most important art spaces in Miami. Ready, set, go!
