Miami isn't defined by just one thing, and its diversity shines through its vibrant and eclectic neighborhoods. At Yve Hotel Miami, guests can enjoy easy access to these distinct locales. Take in the flavor, style, and history of these neighborhoods using our Miami Day Trip guide.
Think open-air shopping malls, business districts, dance clubs, and large concert venues. Downtown Miami offers something whether you’re traveling solo or with family. Some visitors come for the shops — especially those in the emerging Brickell neighborhood, just across the Miami River. Yet Downtown Miami is also home to the American Airlines Arena and the Bayfront Park Amphitheater, both just steps away from YVE Hotel Miami. If you have tickets to a Miami Heat game or a concert, Yve Hotel Miami is the best option in Downtown Miami. Looking for the renowned Downtown Miami club scene? There’s no shortage of options after-hours on NE 11th Street.
Where Art Deco meets white sand beaches. South Beach is recognized internationally for its celebrity chefs, resplendent nightspots and, of course, Miami Beach. It’s also easily accessible from Downtown Miami. Visitors often grab a water taxi departing from the Bayside Marketplace to across Biscayne Bay to South Beach. (If you’re staying at YVE Hotel Miami, Bayside Marketplace is a 3-minute walk from the hotel). Check out rates at Water Taxi Miami. Likewise, to avoid the hassle of parking in South Beach, public transportation services, or rideshare options such as Uber or Lyft are also available. Ask our concierge for more information.
Home to over 70 art galleries, this up-and-coming district has seen drastic changes since the early 2000s. It is now a “creative neighborhood” that specializes in innovative fashion, design, architecture, and dining experiences. It’s a great place for window-shopping, purchasing designer items, and eating in Miami's trendiest restaurants. Also, make sure to check out the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami if you're visiting this popular area in Buena Vista.
Your Miami trip isn’t complete without a trip to Calle Ocho in Little Havana. The Cubano strip is located to the west of Downtown Miami and is frequented by tourists and locals alike. This is the spot to enjoy live music, a fresh mojito from Ball & Chain, or an ice cream from Azucar Ice Cream Company, and peruse the Cuban cigar selection, as well. Check out La Carreta to enjoy your abuela’s best ropa vieja (shredded, stewed beef). Culinary tours are also available. From YVE Hotel Miami, Little Havana is accessible by public transit or car, and is located just a few miles away. Ask our concierge for recommendations.
Following the "City Beautiful" movement, Coral Gables is a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood with tree-lined streets, tropical foliage, and upwards of 150 restaurants, retailers, and gourmet shops. Visitors go to enjoy the historic Venetian Pool, built in the 1920s. Make sure to arrive early, as the pool quickly sells out. There are also botanical gardens worth a visit. Other historic landmarks include the Miami Biltmore hotel and the Douglas Entrance. From YVE Hotel Miami, Coral Gables is accessible by light rail or by car, and is located just 7 miles away.
