Miami Beach is home to the Miami Beach Architectural District; better known as the Miami Art Deco District. Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Sixth Street to the south, Alton Road to the west, the Collins Canal and Dade Boulevard on the northern side, this richly historic district encompasses a large portion of the trendy South Beach area. Among its more than 900 architecturally dazzling buildings, the Art Deco District is also home to the mansion that once belonged to the late Italian fashion designer, Gianni Versace.

However the artwork isn’t limited to just the architectural marvels in Miami Beach. Head over to the Wynwood Art District in Miami and you’ll find one of the largest open-air, street art installations in the world. The Wynwood Walls are a brilliant collection of beautiful street art murals and have been featured in notable publications like the New York Times. During the second Saturday of each month, the district is packed with people participating in Wynwood Art Walk. On this day various galleries, studios, and showrooms open their doors for some great art, music, and drinks.
