Explore Downtown Miami
Feast your eyes on Downtown Miami, the urban city center of Magic City!
Dubbed as Miami's "Central Business District," Downtown Miami is the cityscape of glittering skyscrapers over Biscayne Bay, a hub of international finance, dining, arts, and entertainment, much like its neighboring community, Brickell.
The popular neighborhood is divided by the Miami River, bordered by Midtown (Edgewater and Wynwood) to the north, Biscayne Bay to the east, Civic Center and Overtown to the west, and Coconut Grove to the south.
It is home to 15,688 residents as of the latest US Census.
Nestled on the Atlantic Ocean in South Florida, Downtown Miami is a waterfront community lined with marinas and off-shore islands (both natural and artificial), backed by architecturally impressive high-buildings-- and two or three odd palm trees, give or take.
The community brims with a vast history and culture expected of old city neighborhoods, albeit there's nothing antiquated or old-fashioned about it.
Yes, Downtown Miami has kept up with the times, growing into a modern, culturally rich area filled with theaters, museums, galleries, event venues, and a surplus of world-class bars and restaurants.
It blossoms with nightlife, a vibrant art scene, rich history, and a focus on health and wellness, plus a rich Miami culture with the Caribbean and Latin American influences to boot.
And though some consider it a smaller downtown for such a major U.S city, Downtown Miami stands proud at 3.8 square miles, boasting an incredible South Florida lifestyle most tourists and locals dare not to miss.
Of course, these are only a bare minimum, especially if we're talking about the business hub of South Florida.
Are you down for some scenic shopping and dining?
Drop by the Bayside Marketplace, a shopping complex on Biscayne Boulevard that boasts views of the waterfront lined with palm trees and a marina full of boats.
The two-story mall is crammed with top-name shops and boutiques selling everything from designer sneakers to souvenirs and a full array of dining spots to enjoy after-dark cocktails and hearty meals.
For a fantastic sporting experience, head to the Virginia Key Outdoor Center and spend the day hiking, paddling, fishing, or kayaking (and maybe squeeze in some cycling) under the bright Miami sun.
The center boasts activities as diverse as Downtown Miami itself, a haven for adventurers itching for some action.
And, if you're visiting Downtown with an artsy travel companion, don't forget to check out The Perez Art Museum in Downtown Miami's Museum Park, a three-story building surrounded by water and beautifully landscaped gardens.
Raised on a platform with enormous, airy verandas, the museum has over one-hundred and twenty thousand square feet of exhibition space.
Aside from housing beautiful works from famous artists like Picasso, the building itself is worthy of being called an artwork that exhibits contemporary and experiential art. Oh, and it's an event venue, too!
Meanwhile, for a fun way to see the Downtown sights, tourists can also book a reservation for boat and skyline tours, as well as a ride on BigBus Miami, a hop-on-hop-off, double-decker open-topped bus!
Didn't I say this neighborhood HAS IT ALL?
