A Tour of Old Miami, Brickell, Coconut Grove, and the Wynwood Walls Art District

About this Event

Our tour begins in downtown Miami as we stroll slowly down the main thoroughfare which has seen hurricanes and unsuccessful presidential assassinations.

Your guide, historian Cesar Becerra, will tell the tales of old Miami beginning with a Miami before it was called Miami.

Flagler and his railroad play into the story as we cross the Miami River and disembark for a quick walking tour of one block to discover the world of the early pioneers and a family known as the Brickells.

Next up we roll down Bayshore drive and get a peek at Silver Bluff, its original name along with an original old coastline. The quaint town of Coconut Grove is next as we stroll under its canopy to two historical sites including the oldest house in Miami.

Then we’re off on a bus tour through Miami's most recent phenomenon that has placed us on the world map; The Wynwood Walls Arts District.

Participants are welcome to bring snacks.

Transportation will be provided from and to FIU's Biscayne Bay campus in North Miami and the Miami Shores Community Center.

Tour and transportation: $59
