The long stretch of road that winds through Little Havana in Miami affectionately known as Calle Ocho (Eighth Street) has undergone a change over the years — not the kind of change that makes you want to avoid it, but rather a kind of beautiful metamorphosis. Calle Ocho will always retain its Cuban flavor — you'll find some of the city's best Cuban restaurants here — but its evolution has attracted visitors from near and far. Think of it as Miami's very own picturesque Main Street. It's a great place to take out-of-town friends and family for a foolproof Miami experience. Forget South Beach. Take your visitors to Calle Ocho and watch their eyes widen and their mouths drop. Take them to dinner at chef Michelle Bernstein's Cafe La Trova before heading to Ball & Chain for specialty cocktails and a night of dancing. During the day, walk around and take in the street art and the viejitos studying their games at Domino Park. For a well-rounded Cuban-themed tour, stop by the Cubaocho Museum, then enjoy a cigar from one of the many vendors along the way.
