About our sea turtles and nesting on South Florida beaches

Sea turtle nesting season is here, if you are heading out to the beaches, please pay attention to nesting areas, they will be ropped off and clearly marked, avoid getting near these areas or trampling on the eggs!

Sea turtle nests at Hollywood Beach

Sea turtles nest mostly after dark, females emerge from the water in search for a spot to lay their eggs. They need their peace and quiet, give them a wide berth.

It is against the law to disturb turtles, nesting or otherwise, their eggs and their hatchlings!

You can learn more about sea turtles and how they nest.

Wynwood Second Saturday - August 9, 2014

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 August 9, 2014 - 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.

How Much? FREE
