Miami’s Little Havana Culinary, Artistic and Cultural Tour  

June 11 | 7:30am – 6pm Tuesday


Join us as we explore the rich history and culinary delights of a vibrant neighborhood. Little
Havana was recently listed as an official “national treasure” of the United States by the Nation-
al Trust for Historic Preservation. The neighborhood is well-known for its many historical, po-
litical, culinary, and artistic contributions to our Miami culture. Nestled in the heart of the city’s
downtown area and only a short drive from Miami’s famed South Beach, the neighborhood is
full of interesting cultural landmarks which we visit including a cigar factory, Domino Park,
Cuban Memorial Blvd., the Tower Theater, artist workshops and the Damas De Blanco Mural.
Enjoy delicious cuisine including empanadas, Cuban sandwiches, guayaba, croquetas, churros
and more at a diverse range of establishments; from 5-star gourmet to hole-in-the-wall ethnic
eateries. Departure information will be emailed 3 days prior to the trip. Itineraries are subject
to change.  

No refunds within 10 business days of departure.
