Miami is such a popular winter getaway, it’s hard to figure out what not to love when visiting. From blue skies, beautiful beaches and amazing food (not to mention endless photography opportunities!) there is something for everyone in this southern US city.

For all our readers who love taking photos and are on the lookout for best Instagram spots in Miami, we have you covered!

From beautiful street art to photogenic art galleries – if you’re an Instagram lover, read on!

And here are our top 5 Instagram spots in Miami, Florida:

1. Wynwood Walls

Wynwood is one of my favorite Instagram spots in Miami. Here, no wall is free from street art!

Colour-filled, Wynwood Walls is the most photographed neighborhood 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. Explore the sectioned off area for some cool street art, but don’t forget to go for a walk.

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

Opening Hours: 10:30am – 11:30 pm Mon-Thurs, 10:30am – 12am Fri – Sat, 10:30am – 8pm Sun

Location: 2520 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127, USA

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 colors.

South Beach can get pretty busy during the day (especially on a sunny day!) so make sure you arrive early in the morning or late afternoon if you want to take photos of the lifeguard stands.

My favorite time of day to take that oh-so-perfect Insta shot? As the sunrises – while there are other travelers who will have the same idea as you, South Beach is relatively quiet during this time of day.

Opening Hours: South beach is open 5am – 10pm daily (previously open til midnight, you can read more here if interested in the reasons why)

Location: All along South Beach, Miami

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 colors.

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 the Art Deco Walking Tour from the Miami Design Preservation League.

Opening Hours: 24 hrs! But if you want to book a tour with the Miami Design Preservation League, they run daily at 10:30 am (with an additional tour at 6 pm on Thursdays)

Location: Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139, USA

4. The Perez Art Museum

Dedicated to contemporary art, the Perez Art Museum is not on most tourist must-do lists. The art installations in this museum are interactive (when we were there they had a really fun installation that played with the perception of light!)

Make sure you catch the outside area – there’s a sculpture park, a live hanging garden, swings facing the bay AND an interactive art installation!

Opening Hours: 10 am – 6 pm daily, CLOSED Wednesdays, 10 am – 9 pm Thursdays

Location: 1103 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132, USA

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!

Additionally, Little Havana is a great place to stop for food lovers, especially if you like Cuban food!

Opening Hours: 24/7, but if visiting during the day don’t go too early or you won’t have any where to eat!

Location: Calle Ocho (SW 12th to 16th Avenues), Little Havana, Miami, FL, USA

      Oh my gosh, you will definitely have to go one day then! It’s street art heaven! You’re right, the food is AMAZING – I’m not exaggerating when I say I planned a lot of my days around food. Hopefully, you get to visit one day soon 🙂
