Take a Stroll on Lincoln Road
Lincoln Road used to be a low-key artists’ hangout in the 1980’s. Now it is filled with upscale retail stores. If you are not interested in retail stores, there are still plenty of charming spots for you to visit. You can check out both international and local artists’ work displayed in glass wall studios. The restaurants on Lincoln Road are diverse; you can find anything from sushi to plain old American food over there. If you want to get yourself a cocktail or beer, you will not have a problem finding a bar either.
Visit Elián González’s House
We all remember the story of Elián González in the year 2000. The house that was raided by federal agents and where he stayed for that year is open to the public and can be visited. The house is somewhat of a shrine to Elián with collages of his face covering the walls. There is also a room that is devoted to the raid by federal agents that ultimately led to Elián return to Cuba. You can visit the house for free, and you will be shown around the premises personally by Elián’s great-uncle Delfín.

If you are not in town for the annual Art Basel in Miami Beach, do not fear. There are six dozen different exhibits in Miami’s Wynwood Art District for you to gaze at. These exhibits should give you everything you expected and more when it comes to the art that Miami has to offer.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
