The Wynwood Walls is an area in Miami that features giant, colorful murals, street art and graffiti painted by artists from around the globe. What started out as a photo stop on our way to the Everglades, turned into a 5-hour trip highlight.
We arrived Miami excited to get to our campground at Everglades National Park. Both my partner and I love seeing and photographing street murals and street art. I had done a little research and found out about Wynwood Walls in Miami. I thought, what a great surprise it would be to make a little pit-stop there on our way to the Everglades. Well, that little pit-stop became a 5-hour photography, walking and eating excursion that became a trip highlight!
