Wynwood Art District, Miami (In Pictures) II

Took the family down to the popular Wynwood Art District in Miami yet again this past weekend. With new mural art replacing old quite regularly, there's always fresh new street art to enjoy. That's a good thing.

The Wynwood Art District was once nothing more than a rundown warehouse district (many of them abandoned) near downtown Miami. Over the past hew years, however, Wynwood has become recognized internationally for its art scene. What were once bare warehouse walls have become giant canvases for renowned street artists from all over the world. The Wynwood Art District is also home to over 150 small businesses, including several art galleries, retail stores, and restaurants (we ate at Joey's Italian Cafe yet again - great pizza and surprisingly friendly service). It's a nice way to spend an afternoon as long as you don't stray too far off the beaten path. The surrounding neighborhood isn't the type of place you want to be strolling around when the sun goes down. Although Wynwood has come a long way in recent years, crime is still very prevalent - so exercise caution when visiting.

Back in November, I posted Wynwood Art District, Miami (In Pictures) - so here are a few photographs from our most recent visit. Enjoy...
