Just north of the artsy Wynwood neighborhood is the Design District, an area where new trends are being set every day. The neighborhood is a conglomeration of design outlets, art galleries, home decor stores, antique shops, restaurants, bars, and clubs. In recent years, the city's creative contingent has migrated here, causing some noticeable gentrification, and through the years it's become a popular tourist destination. Stores devoted to design and architecture occupy warehouse-like fronts in an area between North Miami Avenue and North Second Avenue. Although the district covers just a few blocks, it offers a wealth of shopping and design opportunities.
