Once you go to Miami, probably you go because of the beach, bet there is some places you should visit, and even the beach is too good, some places you can’t miss. So let me suggest you 3 different places in Miami.
Northwest Miami’s Liberty City and Historic Overtown areas have a long and rich history.
This historically black area is pushing for preservation.
Today, this vibrant corner of Greater Miami displays its cultural and civic pride with colorful murals of African-American heroes, its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade and the historic Lyric Theater. The Lyric Theater was the anchor of the area once known as “Little Broadway” and hosted performances by such big names as Count Basie, Patti LaBelle and Aretha Franklin. The Lyric Theater thrived between 1913 and the 1960s, but the facility went through a lull after that. Today, the Lyric Theater is reopened, renovated and working to reclaim its former glory.
The neighborhood is also home to local’s favorites like the beloved People’s Bar-B-Que, non-profit music projects, arts festivals, farmers markets and more.
Galleries, ethnic food, indie-music and more in Little Haiti.
The Miami neighborhood known as Little Haiti is the cultural heart for the Haitian Diaspora. The area boasts art galleries, Haitian book and music stores and the Little Haiti Cultural Center, which hosts dance and theater performances and is increasingly becoming a burgeoning center of small independent businesses of all kinds. A bronze statue of General Toussaint L’Ouverture, the father of Haitian independence, stands at Northeast 2nd Avenue and 62nd Street in the heart of “La Petite Haiti.”
Explore Little Haiti, an authentic and not particularly touristy Miami ethnic neighborhood, for its sincerity and authenticity. Longtime family owned businesses sit alongside Haitian markets and hip furniture and music stores in this evolving Miami neighborhood.
