We love encouraging our visitors to get off the typical tourist path and see the real Miami. The city is filled with vibrant neighborhoods that capture the spirit of local life. Little Havana is a must-see and highly recommended, but have you ever explored Little Haiti? Make this exciting district your next stop. Stroll around soaking in the atmosphere of this neighborhood with an Afro-Caribbean flavor and center point for the Haitian diaspora.
During your visit you can browse Haitian book and music stores, shop at hip boutiques, and pop into up-and-coming art galleries. Mom and pop shops sit right next to cool new spots, and don't miss the bronze statue of the father of Haitian independence,General Toussaint L'Ouverture. You can find it at Northeast 2nd Avenue and 62nd Street in the middle of "La Petite Haiti."
Little Haiti Cultural Center
At the heart of the neighborhood is the Little Haiti Cultural Center. Check out an art exhibit or see an exciting dance performance. This gem captures the spirit of the neighborhood and hosts a lively Caribbean market with music and food from Thursdays through Sundays.
When you're ready to visit Little Haiti, just hop in your car and drive to this vibrant Miami district in about 20 minutes. We'd also be happy to help you arrange an Uber ride, taxi service, or give you directions on the newly refurbished public bus system.
