Continuing in our tradition to help locals and travelers navigate the real side of Miami, we’re unveiling a brand new map just in time for Art Basel. Instead of focusing on just a single neighborhood, we decided to help those making their way to The Magic City by instilling them with a much-needed sense of direction. Move through the city and make your itineraries with relative knowledge of what you can get done in one day by checking out the shows, galleries, and museums that are close to each other, as well as the beloved hangs nearby to get you through it. Check out another great design by local illustrator extraordinaire, Beth Rhodes.
