I Moved To Miami for Wynwood Arts District!
In 2015, Boyd and I packed our Las Vegas condominium and moved to Miami to start Casa Wynwood and Wynwood Lab! Yes, it literally happened almost that fast!
Since 2015, the Wynwood has been more commercialized and gentrified but it’s still worth exploring for a few hours if your time is limited or a full day if time allows. You’ll still find great wall art from in
Here are the parts of Wynwood you shouldn’t miss…

When should you go to Miami?
Coming to Miami is a good time all year round, but I live here, and the breezy humidity is great for me. Budget will have a big weight on when most people plan Miami vacations.
Winter months are peak times to travel to Miami. Most of the “snowbirds” (people and birds from the north) fly south to visit or even move to South Florida during the winter months. November until March is considered “Winter” in Miami but it’s super nice and very comfortable most days. Yes, you can still go to the beach, and the water is warm. Most pools are heated, if not they will feel rather cool to south Floridians, but they may seem fine to visitors.
Summer months are hot and humid, perfect for the pool or beach, but not so great for walking around, exploring, or going inland to places such as the Everglades. During peak months, you’ll expect a lot more traffic, more tourists, and more conferences, fairs, and trade shows – all of which drastically increases costs.
What should you pack for Miami?
1. think summer!
Miami is the true south of the United States. Nine months out of the year, it’s like a great summer day with a little extra humidity compared to most places. March through October, temperatures easily stay around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It does get cooler at night during the spring and summer months, so pay attention to my packing tips.
October through March, pack a lightweight sweater or jacket. December-February, it can get as low as 50 degrees Fahrenheit at night. If you’re coming from Scotland, this will feel like your summer, and yes, you can wear a bathing suit year-round in Miami without looking silly; however, you will look like a tourist.
Miami is a very fashion-forward city. Wearing flip-flops, and bathing suits everywhere is a great way to say “I’m a tourist”. If you want to fit in, pack your bathing suit no matter what time of year you come. Our pools are heated, and the water is much warmer than anywhere else I’ve ever been no matter what time of year. Ladies, pack a pair of nice sandals or cute tennis shoes. Set aside the South Beach sleazy look and pack full coverage bathing suit coverups so that you could go from the pool to lunch without feeling naked. SWIMS loafers are great for guys. There’s no better place to bring out your most interesting wear as long as you’re not sweating through the process. Pack breathable fabrics such as linens and cotton.
WHAT IS THE CURRENCY & CONVERSION IN MIAMI?
Currency: Miami currency is the USD – United States Dollar.
Credit Cards & ATMs: Most Miami stores and Miami shops take Visa & Mastercard credit cards. Some also take Discover, American Express and other credit cards.
Currency Conversion Tips: Waiting to convert at the airports in any destination can be costly. Check your credit card and ATM companies to find their currency conversion policy. Use the credit card that converts the most daily. Then, if you need to convert to cash, check with your local bank prior to departure or use an online currency converter.
Which beaches are best?
Most tourists think of ONE beach in Miami, but there are several beaches to consider. Where to stay and on what beach really depends on each individual preference on what to do in Miami; some prefer the nightlife and more club scene, others like to watch the beach bodybuilders, and others simply want to relax, read a book, and have ice cold beverages delivered beach or poolside. Miami has a little something for everyone.
