Next to the Design District is Midtown, which includes the arty Wynwood and Edgewater neighborhoods. At the heart of Midtown is the Shops at Midtown, an outdoor shopping district designed to resemble SoHo in New York. Although grand plans for Midtown were derailed by the recession, the area is still known for galleries and restaurants, including the local Mexican favorite Mercadito. Landmarks include the two buildings of the former Barcardi headquarters, which are classic Miami mid-century modern design with a Latin twist. During the December Art Basel Miami festival, Midtown hosts the Art Midtown art fair.
Getting Around Miami
The best way to get around Miami is by public transportation (bus/metro) or by car, depending on where you are staying. If staying downtown, public transit is a convenient option. In downtown Miami, the Metromover runs every 90 seconds to 3 minutes depending on demand and operates from 5 a.m. until midnight every day.
