Hop aboard Miami's cultural time machine as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Mayor Daniella Levine Cava!

Cultural and historical aficionados in Miami-Dade County, Florida, were be happy to hear some news from Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and the county's Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW). The much-anticipated cultural bus excursions are returning to our bustling neighborhood in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. These tours promise an exciting look into the Hispanic customs that have had such a significant impact on Miami-Dade's past, tradition, and heritage.

Discovering Miami's rich heritage

As Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said, our town is tremendously varied, and this tour exemplifies our dedication to recognizing and celebrating the important impact that Hispanic culture has had on Miami-Dade. She recommends that locals take advantage of the free cultural bus trips offered by the County to discover more about its varied past.

These two-hour, guided tours are offered for free and provide an intriguing look into the cultural core of Miami. Beginning at 111 N.W. First Street at the Stephen P. Clark Center, tourgoers will be taken on an educational journey that includes visits to the Miami Shrine of Our Lady of Charity in Coconut Grove and the famous Calle Ocho. Due to extensive refurbishment work leading up to the Freedom Tower's centennial commemoration in 2025, tour-goers will remain on the bus throughout this segment.

About 30 minutes will be spent disembarking at Our Lady of Charity and on Calle Ocho close to Domino Park, making this an unforgettable experience for everybody involved. Visiting these locations will give you a taste of the diverse cultural heritage that makes Miami-Dade County so interesting.
