Visit Little Havana. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting us from other places, or you are a local. How often do you get to spend a day in such a cool place as Little Havana? Perhaps you don’t want to spend a lot of money, but want to do something fun. Stroll through the famed Calle Ocho strip, filled with Latin-inspired restaurants, cafés, and markets. Spend some time at Gomez Park watching the pros chat over politics and play an intense game of dominoes. Suppose you happen to stop by on the last Friday of the month. In that case, Little Havana hosts Viernes Culturales, Little Havana’s art, and cultural festival, where visitors will get to discover local artists, dance to live music, and shop.
