Cubans have historically migrated to Miami since the revolution, although Colombians, Puerto Ricans, and Venezuelans—as well as (often affluent) Latinx people from basically all over the region—now call this panhandle state home.
Neighborhoods: Although Little Havana, Miami—helmed by Calle Ocho, home to an eponymous street festival—often grabs the headlines, Florida has a wealth of Latinx neighborhoods to explore. Ybor City, Tampa (the so-called cigar capital of the world) is home to several Latinx hotspots, including the Ybor City Museum State Park. Meanwhile, Key Biscayne is the region’s most Latinx island.
Attractions: In Little Havana, don’t miss the Cuban Memorial Plaza. Then, make time to stop at the Freedom Tower, an Ellis Island–esque immigration center-turned-art museum or the Pérez Art Museum. Of course, Latinx restaurants, bakeries, and eateries abound in towns the length and breadth of Florida.
