The Downtown Miami/Brickell area is Miami’s bustling epicenter, packed with gleaming skyscrapers, sweeping bay views, and hidden places to explore. Downtown Miami is a neighborhood of layers—decades of history that feature popular tourist destinations. It was the site of one of Miami’s earliest international attractions, Henry Flagler’s Royal Palm Hotel, which opened in 1897 along the bank of the Miami River.
Downtown Miami was home to Miami’s first development boom in the 1910s and 1920s, with Flagler Street at its core. The Freedom Tower, on the U.S. Registry of Historic Places, was the entry point for Cuban refugees arriving in Miami in 1959.
Intertwined within this rich historical enclave lies some of Miami’s most popular tourist destinations which include the Port of Miami, American Airlines Arena (home of the Miami Heat), Bayfront Park, Bayside Marketplace, Arscht Center for the Performing Arts and Miami’s newest jewel, the Perez Art Museum. A canvas of century-old buildings combined with modern buildings, the Downtown Miami area is a favorite destination for visitors who will find themselves among new pockets of young residents in-the-midst of fine restaurants and bars, shops, parks intertwined with world-class venues and museums.
Directly across the historic Miami River lies Downtown Miami’s southern neighbor, Brickell/Miami. Considered the “Manhattan of the South”, Brickell takes Miami to new heights with towering financial centers, luxury condo complexes and an elevated metro rail line. Brickell features one of Miami’s favorite entertainment centers, Mary Brickell Village and its many restaurants, bars and shops along Miami Avenue.
