My first trip to Miami was incredibly peaceful but filled with art, food, and adventure. There were several places I visited that were worth the experience. It rained every day during my Miami stay except the very last day, but the rain just opened doors to explore a lot of food, art, and indoor activities. If you need a few things to do during your stay in Miami, Florida, check out these places!
It is an Urban Graffiti Art Museum located in Midtown, Miami. The Wynwood Walls is a significant art statement created by Tony Goldman in 2009. Tony was inspired by graffiti and street art which, he believes was underappreciated and not respected. He wanted to place more light and give the movement more attention and respect by presenting it in a way that had not been done before.

The Illusions Museum is a 3D Illusion and Art experience for all ages! It is also an interactive experience that will spark your fantasy and imagination.
