North of Downtown, between Interstate 95 and Northeast 1st Avenue from 29th to 22nd streets, is the colorful, grungy, artistic neighborhood of Wynwood. With an impressive mix of one-of-a-kind shops and art galleries, public art displays, see-and-be-seen bars, slick restaurants, and plenty of eye-popping graffiti, it's one of the coolest areas in Miami. Almost every street is colored with funky spray-paint art, making the neighborhood a photographer’s dream. Wynwood’s trendiness has proven infectious, also taking root in proximate neighborhoods. The downside: you’ll need a vehicle to get here, and though in close proximity to one another, you’ll also need a vehicle to get to nearby Midtown and the Design District.
