Located south of I-195 and Little Havana, Wynwood is one of the trendiest neighborhoods in town. One of the most popular spots is Wynwood Walls, an outdoor museum featuring huge outdoor murals created by several of the best street artists in the world. Many of the warehouses in the area have been converted into craft breweries and groovy art galleries. The neighborhoods are filled with trendy boutiques offering the hottest clothes, chic bistros, and fashionable bars that stay open far into the night.
Located just off Biscayne Bay and within easy driving distance of Miami Beach, you won't have any trouble finding great places to eat serving up an incredible range of international cuisine with a significant Latin influence. There are several parks nearby for you and your dog to explore and enjoy and bistros where you can enjoy an espresso sitting on the sidewalk while your dog enjoys relaxing with you.
The majority of Wynwood is densely built up with the warehouse district located in the center of the community. With I-195 to the north and I-95 to the west, traffic can be heavy at times. While morning and evening rush hours are busy, like most major cities, Wynwood really comes to life in the evenings as the night-life takes over. Most the blocks here have been carefully laid out and make it easy for you and your dog to plan your walks together.
As you walk around the residential neighborhoods, the one thing that stands out is the number of homes that have tall security fences around them and the houses have bars on the windows. Walking here by yourself might not be the best idea unless your pup is big enough to protect you. Despite this, from a visual point of view, most of Wynwood is a picturesque place to take your dog walking.
While the central part of Wynwood houses the converted warehouses and the homes in the northern section are densely packed, there are several parks in the area for you and your dog to explore. Most are small, but will provide enough space for the two of you to play in and get a little exercise.
If you are looking for somewhere to take the kids, try heading over the MacArthur Causeway to Watson Island. The island is home to the Jungle Island where the two of you can visit over 3,000 plant, bird, and animal species. There is a petting zoo and several nature trails for you to enjoy.
At the nearby Margaret Pace Dog Park, you will find an off-leash park with an area for the big guys and one for the smaller ones. It's a fantastic place for you to meet new people and for your dog to make new friends!
