Wynwood is a neighborhood in Miami known for its colorful murals, restaurants, breweries, clothing stores, dance venues, and small local businesses.
As many Puerto Ricans began immigrating to this neighborhood, Wynwood was nicknamed "Little San Juan" and "El Barrio" by Miami locals. The streets of Wynwood are lined with Puerto Rican-owned restaurants, shops, markets, and other small businesses. In 2009, artists were commissioned to help create the iconic Wynwood Walls, an outdoor exhibition of rotating street art.
Within the Wynwood neighborhood are three subdistricts: the art district, the fashion district, and the technology district. The Wynwood Art District (centered around the Wynwood Walls) contains galleries, outdoor murals, and private art collections. The Miami Fashion District in Wynwood houses many of the city's major clothing retailers and distributors. The Wynwood Technology District consists of The LAB Miami, a co-working space utilized as a hub for startup innovation, and Wyncode, a coding boot camp.
Access Wynwood via Metrobus or Metromover, Miami's free trolley service throughout the city.
