Ten Reasons FAT Village's Art Walk Is Better Than Wynwood's
Every second Saturday of the month, hordes of people make the trek down to Wynwood in Miami for its art walk. It's hip, urban, and usually overshadows FAT Village's ArtWalk in downtown Fort Lauderdale. But it shouldn't.
Since Wynwood's art walk is on the second Saturday and FAT Village's is on the last Saturday, you could technically attend both each month. But once you go to FAT Village's art walk, you won't want to.
If you're from Fort Lauderdale, you'll feel silly for ever wasting the gas money to go to Wynwood in the first place. If you're from Miami, you'll be reminded of Wynwood before it lost its once-artcentric ways.
10. FAT Village art walkers can fight the tacky compulsion to take selfies with every mural.
Jess Swanson You know you spend too much time in Wynwood when not taking a selfie with Sandra Bullock over here was the hardest thing you've done all week. (I resisted.)
At first it didn't feel like a proper art walk. After all, where were the throngs of wannabe hipsters taking narcissistic photo shoots? I was able to see the street art without any obstruction. And it was stunning! I was able to walk on the sidewalk without photo-bombing some chick's future Facebook profile pic. I also had plenty of sidewalk to walk on. My toes were not stomped on, and my flats were not scuffed. Things were looking good.
