Miami Design District Gallery Walk

The second Saturday of every month is the day, or rather night, to visit this great up and coming neighborhood when the District does the "Art Walk".

There is the art galleries, design showrooms, gourmet restaurants, and a roster of top-of-the-line fashion houses, all in a thriving compact area.

When? Saturday November 9, 2013 - 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Where? Roughly between 38th St and 42nd St and N. Miami Avenue and NE 2nd Avenue. CAUTION: The area surrounding the Design District is a very doubtful neighborhood, please exercise caution when getting here and back.

Wynwood Second Saturday - November 9, 2013

Miami Wynwood 
District Street Art

Like its counterpart at the Miami Design District, Wynwood is an emerging neighborhood in a decaying part of town that has been revitalized and is transforming the art scene in Miami, but this is where the likeness stops.

Wynwood is best known for its street art and splashy murals and over 70 galleries and counting.

On Second Saturdays, the place is on overdrive, crowds come to enjoy their art and their food trucks. A must for street art lovers, but if you are not into crowds, definitely not for you.

When? Saturday November 9, 2013 - 6:00pm to 11:00 pm

Where? Roughly between Biscayne Boulevard and I-95 and NW 36th Street and NW 20th Street. CAUTION: The area surrounding the Wynwood District is a very doubtful neighborhood, please exercise caution when getting here and back.
