Great museums, historic landmarks, cultural areas and fun adventures….there is so much to see in and around the Miami/Brickell area. From Miami’s newest art and historical exhibits to beautiful bay vistas and walks to historical landmarks that are so important to today’s Miami to the scenic and splendor of the Everglades there is something in and around Downtown Miami/Brickell that will make you say WOW!
