MIAMI

The bustling downtown of Miami is renowned around the world for its beaches, nightclubs, restaurants, shops and more -- and also its traffic. Miami is a car-centric city and that’s clear from how busy the roads get, but downtown is also surprisingly good for lower or zero polluting alternatives including exploring by foot or using public transportation.

Indeed, downtown Miami notches an impressive 73 on Walk Score, meaning it’s very walkable and you can achieve most tasks like grocery shopping and recreation on foot. That means you can explore neighborhoods like the thriving Wynwood district that features a huge number of quirky art galleries, funky diners and even more to entertain you.

And of course you’re also just a short walk, bus, or car ride to the beach where you can while away the hours playing watersports or getting some rest and relaxation under the sun.
