1. Wynwood Walls

Wynwood is one of my favourite Instagram spots in Miami.

Here, no wall is free from street art!

Colour-filled, Wynwood Walls is the most photographed neighbourhood in Miami. Google Maps will direct you to a section of Wynwood which appears to be the “official Wynwood Walls”. In reality, all of the surrounding streets have street art.

There are also cute boutiques filled with handmade jewellery and craft, as well as cute hipster cafes!

2. Lifeguard stands at South Beach

Littered along South Beach, the lifeguard stands here are all unique pieces of artwork that are painted in bright colours.

As the lifeguard stands are in active use, arrive early in the morning or late afternoon if you want to get up close and personal. Better yet, you could even photograph them as the sun rises!

3. Art Deco architecture on Ocean Drive

Ocean Drive is heaven for those looking for the perfect Instagram spots in Miami!

Filled with Miami’s busiest restaurants and bars, Ocean Drive is also home to eye-catching Art Deco buildings from the 1930’s.

Under the guidance of Miami’s Design Preservation League, these buildings are carefully preserved and painted in beautiful pastel colours.

Some of the best-preserved Art Deco buildings in Miami Beach are along Ocean Drive, but if you’re after something a little bit different, the streets behind Ocean Drive also have beautiful examples of Art Deco architecture.

If you want to learn more about the history of their preservation, make sure you take a walking tour from the Miami Design Preservation League.

4. The Perez Art Museum

Dedicated to contemporary art, the Perez Art Museum is not on most tourist must-do lists.

Here, the outside area features not only a sculpture park but also a live hanging garden, swings facing the bay and an interactive art installation!

5. Street art in Little Havana

The main street that runs through Little Havana is a haven for tourists, but if you look closely, you’ll spot some amazing street art by local artists. These are often missed by visitors, as most tourists get their street art fix at Wynwood, but is worth looking out for if you’re in the area!
