While we were in college, Jeff’s parents moved from our hometown in New Jersey to South Florida and for our first married Christmas together we headed to their neck of the woods! We took a day trip to Miami basically for one sole purpose… Wynwood Walls! I’ve seen this mystical, magical place all over Instagram and it was NECESSARY to go. It DID NOT disappoint! Conceived by Tony Goldman, the concept was created to transform Wynwood’s warehouse district and bring more foot traffic to the area… by turning warehouse walls into giant pieces of art! There’s a “park” type area where several of these walls are, but in the surrounding neighborhood there are INFINITELY more walls to see, and some cool shops too! If you’re in the area, you gotta check it out!

I’d apologize for how many pictures of myself I just posted except I won’t. Because these walls are freaking awesome. If you head to the area, check out Frangipani, a cute little shop next door to the walls. Several people recommended nearby Zak the Baker to us too, but we didn’t make it there. Let me know if you go! This certainly wasn’t my last trip to this dream world. And bonus of my Florida trip? I got to have lunch with Drea and her cutie little lady Marlowe! All around, it was a great trip!
What are your favorite Miami spots so I can hit them next time I’m there!?
