Miami Herald, Walk your Miami Neighborhoods
April 25th, 2018
An exciting, free, family-friendly movement of neighborhood walking tours is growing fast in Miami. The event #MiamiWalks is led by local residents, and the event is part of a global movement called Jane’s Walk.
The goal is for people of all ages to get to know each other better and create a walking culture in South Florida.
Walks will take place May 4-6 with 16 tours in the Miami-Dade neighborhoods of Doral, Miami River, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Allapattah, South Miami, Little Havana, Design District, Overtown, Little Haiti, North Miami, Shenandoah, and downtown Miami. The walks are scheduled between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Hundreds of cities will be participating at the same time around the world. It is also the “Neighborhood Walks” event for the #10DaysofConnection programs taking place in Miami, May 1-10.
Naomi Ross, who is serving as city organizer for Jane’s Walk Miami for the second year, said the tours and attendee counts are growing.
“For 2018 we have 16-plus neighborhood tours, which is made possible thanks to a growing number of community partners, including Connect Miami’s #10DaysofConnection. MIA Shooters is helping us recruit photographers to document each walk. Plus, the Knight Foundation is an ongoing local sponsor,” Ross said in an email.
You can get involved as a host or as a walker or join in other events. Learn more at 10daysofconnection.org.
