Published / by Josiah / Leave a Comment

History of development and growth is not rare when considering Brickell and Downtown Miami. Though it lagged in the ’80s the area has made a major comeback as a cultural hub. And thanks in part to the opening of various museums, music venues, bars, and restaurants.
Bayfront Park
Bayfront is a 32-acre urban park that’s perfect for a nice walk, yoga or pilates section, or picnic in the grass where you can bring your pet, snacks, wine, and people watch or get there while the sun is setting to see the beautiful colors in the sky. This park is right next to the Frost Museum of Science that has things to do inside every day of the week. This is a great place to come if you have children and are looking to entertain them while still educating them on cool topics they might be interested in.
For the locals, the Frost Museum also has a day camp for children that provides a great learning experience with extra field trips around that city.
This area of downtown is hustling and bustling during the week and calms down on the weekends. This block however is always filled with adorable dogs that can be taken off their leash at the park. Along the edge of this park is the water where you can look across and see South Beach. You can see a ton of yachts, cruise ships, and fishing boats enjoying the weather and the water every day of the week as well.
Brickell is south of the central business district, separated by the Miami River. Brickell is one of Miami’s busiest, trendiest, and most upscale areas and is still exponentially growing with residents. Brickell was the Millionaire’s row of Miami once upon a time, home to a wide assortment of opulent mansions. Over the decades, the mansions have been replaced with highrises, as it’s slowly but surely taken over as the city’s central hub of all things business. This is the most densely populated area in the city. Manhattan of the South is Brickell. Luxury hotels on every block accompany the many expensive restaurants also seen lining these streets.
