Description

           Event name: Cuban Heritage Tour


It was not long ago that Miami was a rather large but quiet Southern city.  The Castro revolution in in 1959 changed forever.  Wave after wave of Cuban refugees have transformed into the Capital of the , a fast-paced, internationally-connected, commercial and entertainment hub with a racy Latin image.  From the food, to the accents on the street, to the fashion scene and artist’s studio, now pulses with an original blended culture.


 
Come with us on a journey through the story of ’s Cuban community.  Experience the passion and vision that these motivated exiles brought to their new home.  We will be visiting 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 and longing.  Take in the smells, sights, sounds and colors of a street that launched the dramatic transformation of over four decades ago and prepare yourself for a day of discovery and fun.
