Its residential market is also a vast mix of moderately priced apartments, duplexes, and single-family homes.
But aside from the community's eclectic vibe, there are a couple more things that tourists look forward to whenever they visit Flagami, and shopping, dining, and entertainment are three of its top draws.
For one, the cosmopolitan neighborhood boasts an array of shopping destinations, including the Mall of the Americas (Midway Crossings), Flagler Plaza, and Granada Plaza, among others.

Magic City Casino is first on the list.

Another hot tourist attraction in Flagami is the Grapeland Water Park, a perfect oasis for a family outing in Miami. Designed by Miami's famous pop artist Romero Britto, the recreational center offers 13 acres of water slides, lazy rivers, and pools to have fun in the sun.

Meanwhile, golf lovers and enthusiasts can also play rounds of golf at the nearby International Links Melreese Country Club, a 135-acre golf course adjacent to the Miami International Airport.
The famous golfing destination is a few miles inland of Biscayne Bay and is a cornerstone of golf education and training for student-athletes and the community.
Its golf course underwent a $3.9 million renovation in 1997 to include a 12-acre driving range and a golf media center that's large enough to accommodate up to 100 people.
Some notable features of International Links Melreese Country Club include five lakes, nine waste bunkers, 97 sand bunkers, and a Cypress wetland area, landscaped beautifully and designed strategically around the course.
The rolling Northern-style fairway allows for dynamic elevation changes and is also a practical function of the irrigation system, allowing for play in conditions when many other courses are unplayable.
For outdoor leisure, visitors can also have a picnic, take a walk, venture out in a boat on Blue Lagoon at Antonio Maceo Park, or visit other small neighborhood parks within the vicinity.
Flagami is also a centric location within a few miles of Brickell, Wynwood, Little Havana, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, and Downtown Miami (30-minute drive tops), so exploring more of Miami will be possible from this point.
