The days seem to be passing by quicker than usual these days, right?! I mean we are almost in August...which means it is almost Fall time again! Its crazy to me to think that 2015 is almost over and soon we'll be starting a whole new 365 day chapter! Anyways, I wanted to talk to you guys about where I reside in Florida. Miami is pretty much known for its beaches (aka South Beach), its eclectic groups of people, and some pretty awesome food! Then there's the usual sights to see such as Wynwood, Downtown Miami, and the Versace Mansion. Do not get me wrong, I love visiting these places as much as the next person but there is so much more to see in South Florida, I promise! Just heading a little bit more south is an area called "Little Havana". It is known for its traditional Cuban culture, robust street life, culture influenced activities, and amazing food! The day I shot these photos, I was pleasantly surprised to see so many tourists everywhere. Taking in the ambiance, shooting photos, lining up at the ever popular ice cream shop, Azucar. They have so many ice cream flavors, it is crazy! I think that when people set their trips to come and visit Miami, this area is overlooked because it is not as known as our other famous sights. SO, if you ever plan a trip to Miami, do not forget to stop by and experience it for yourself.
Here are five sights to see/things to do in Little Havana:
1. The Tower theater: One of our oldest landmarks in South Florida. You could watch unique independent films here and they also host exibits and educational programs too.
2. Experince the Big Bus Miami tours! I have yet to try this, but it looks like too much fun. You could catch one in Little Havana and it takes you all around Miami's iconic landmarks. Not just for the tourists...locals too ! ;) lol
3. Little Havana "Walk of Fame" ; reminiscent to the familiar stars in Los Angeles, CA; here you get to see a plethora of them honoring and celebrating the accomplishments of famous latin arists & organizations.
4. Azucar Ice Cream Shop: I already mentioned this, so you know it is so worth the trip! They offer "homemade Cuban ice cream" and they have so many flavors to choose from! Some are even named after famous artists and well-known cuban dishes.
5. Domino Park: This is a major landmark in 8th street (aka Calle Ocho). Here you will find that it will always be full with neighborhood domino players that have "mastered" the art of playing dominos. There are also nearby shops and restaurants too, and its very picturesque (photo-op moment)!
This has been my uniform lately; airy blouses and a good pair of shorts! This day was especially hot so I was glad that I had the idea of picking up my hair (which I never do, only at home when I'm being lazy).
