Cuban Heritage Tour

Monday, September 19

Since the Castro revolution in Cuba in 1959, wave after wave of Cuban refugees have transformed Miami into the Capital of the Americas, a fast-paced, internationally connected commercial and entertainment hub.

 

From the food, to the fashion scene, to the art and music on the street, Miami now pulses with a unique blended culture.  Our Cuban Heritage Tour will journey through the story of Miami’s Cuban community.  We will visit Miami’s own version of the Statue of Liberty, a well-loved marketplace, great Cuban food spots, moving monuments, lively street scenes and a place of spiritual reflection.

 

Take in the smells, sights, sounds and colors of a street that launched the dramatic transformation of Miami nearly half a century ago, and prepare for a day of discovery of fun.
