Florida Free Miami

Calle Ocho, Little Havana – Miami, FL

Bottom line:
GO ✅

Overall: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 stars
Pros: Festive. Immersive cultural experience.
Cons: Can be a little touristy and some research required to understand the significance of some of the featured figures.

What is it?:
It’s a cultural neighborhood. Calle Ocho (calle = street, ocho = 8) is just one street (8th Street) but Little Havana extends north for several blocks. 

This is a quintessential Miami experience. Go for the music, the food, the culture. Don’t miss the old folks playing dominos in Domino Park, the live music in the various restaurants and grab ice cream from Azucar. You won’t be disappointed. Lunch pictured from Old Havana Bar & Cocina.

WARNING:
The live music can be a little loud, so for little ones, you may want to bring noise reducing headsets. My kids spent 15 minutes with their hands over their ears before they started getting used to the noise level.

Hours:
N/A – Neighborhood

Cost:
N/A – Neighborhood visit

Parking:
Street parking;  Consider getting the PayByPhone parking app to pay for street parking. It’s way easier than the meter.
