Downtown Miami

  Where Work Meets Play  

Part international business center, part cultural area.

Downtown Miami pulsates with activity as commercial, cultural and leisure pursuits come together in the fastest growing area in Miami. Innovative skyscrapers line the sky and make up Miami's iconic skyline. Historic shopping arcades and storefronts packed with merchandise evoke Miami's origins as a trading town.

Downtown Miami department stores and emporiums offer big city shopping with a cosmopolitan flair, while the area's diversity inspires dining delights in a variety of culinary styles. And of course, there are the amazing views from everywhere in Downtown.

Downtown Miami's collection of skyscrapers shares a view of Biscayne Bay that's worth a million bucks. Ride the free elevated Metromover through downtown and stop off at Bayside Marketplace for lunch and shopping. Make time to visit one of the downtown museums such as History Miami or the Miami Art Museum.

The Downtown Miami Area is made up of several parts; the Brickell area, a metropolitan residential community of tall buildings, hip bars and restaurants, and an internationally diverse group of residents; Omni, a blend of residential, commercial and hotels including the magnificent Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts; Park West, the Bicentennial Park area; and the Miami Jewelry District.
