Downtown, the heart of Miami
Those who have landed at the Miami International Airport with only the beach in mind should know that there’s no part of the city that beats as strongly as Downtown. So put that destination in the GPS of your rental car and set out to feel the vibrant energy that pulses through Miami.
Downtown is located in the central economic district of South Florida. To be more precise on the west side of the city, north of Coconut Grove and east of Little Havana. It includes the neighborhoods of Brickell, Virginia Key, Watson Island and the Port of Miami.

It’s bordered by the Bay of Biscayne to the east, Interstate 95 to the west, the Miami River to the north, and SE 32 Road to the south. Brickell Key is part of the neighborhood, which is connected to the city by bridge and is full of luxury condominiums.
Virginia Key is another neighborhood in Downtown Miami. It’s an 860 acre (3.5 km sq.) island principally occupied by the Miami Seaquarium, The University of Miami Rosentiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, and The Virginia Key Beach Park which in 2002 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
