Best known for:

In the ’20s, Miami was nicknamed the Magic City because its population had rapidly grown, seemingly overnight.

Did you know?

Once a run-down warehouse district, The Wynwood Walls is now an uber-cool art district, with more than 7400 square metres of street art.

Each year the display grows – it has seen more than 50 artists from 16 countries worldwide.
