About
Immerse yourself in Cuban American culture on Little Havana’s main street, which serves as a major gathering point for the Latino community in Miami. Taste the finest rum in town or grab some churros as you explore the area. You’ll see seniors playing dominoes at Domino Park, as well as plenty of vintage cars, colorful street art, and gift and craft shops along the way. Stroll along the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame and spot the stars of Gloria Estefan, Thalía, and other Hispanic icons. Visit the neighborhood around mid-March to catch the exuberant Calle Ocho Music Festival. – Tripadvisor

    Great day trip to visit your Hispanic roots!
    When you live 2 hours away, this is a fun day trip. Only takes a few hours to sit and have a cafecito, maybe a Cuban sandwich as you walk around. Watch the cigar rolling, head over to Ball and Chain to listen to live music and check out the Celia Cruz display at the old theater!

    Unique Ethnic Neighborhood
    A unique experience, the premier Cuban neighborhood in the US and this is the main street. Take a long walk, do some shopping, have a Cuban sandwich, or just an espresso. Step into a bar with music. Wander off a couple of blocks to see where the folks live. It's the real thing.

    An exciting street in an exciting neighborhood
    I enjoyed strolling down this street. It is a true destination to get your Miami vibe. Loved the colorful roosters and the many murals. Lots of eateries and nice stores to get cigars, ice-cream, a cool hat, or souvenirs. Many performers and Latin music coming out of businesses create a very fun atmosphere. The Bay of Pigs Memorial was a surprise and is a fitting tribute commemorating the event.

This is a must to visit while in Miami. It is a small area , a few blocks only but full of shops, restaurants, arts, cafes. A delightful place. Main attractions are on the Main Street, Calle Ocho ( 8th street) People are friendly and ready to assist with info if asked. Go on the side streets a little to get a sense of how people live there. Enjoy

Wasn't as lively as I was expecting, but there are a lot of nice shops and great cigar places. Plenty of places to eat but I wasn't feeling that "Wow" factor...
