Exploring The Wynwood Walls in Miami with Polaroid

I spent two years living in Miami, Florida and the magic city holds a special place in my heart. Any time I have an opportunity to return, for work or pleasure, I jump at the opportunity! I recently spent a few weeks in Miami and went down to Wynwood, in the Design District to explore the murals and artwork with my friend Taylor from Travel Colorfully and my trusty Polaroid Snap.

One of the first murals we spotted was a giant, multi-colored piece that read “LOVEISM” and we both fell in love with it!

Wynwood, Miami, is the ultimate playground for art lovers and color fanatics alike. There isn’t a square inch of the Wynwood area that doesn’t grasp your attention and I’m so glad that after two years I had the pleasure of visiting again! I’m even more glad that this time I took my Polaroid Snap along with me so that I have some tangible memories from my explorations.
