Downtown Miami is best visited during daylight hours, when the unique boutiques and shops along the roads are open, and the streets are bustling with people. The crowd thins after dark but the skyscrapers make a picture-perfect view from a distance. Little Havana in downtown Miami covers only three square miles of land, but is one of the most famous sections of town. The area is known for its wonderful food, shops, sights and Cuban culture. Other ethnic groups can also be found in the area but most of the population is made up of Cuban refugees. Eighth Street may be difficult to access by car, but it is the heart of Little Havana and is worth touring on foot if you have time.
