Morningside, Florida is a single family home neighborhood located north of Downtown Miami and within the general Upper East Side area. Morningside became Miami's first historic district in 1984. A virtual Who's Who of early architects designed the beautiful homes in mostly Mediterranean Revival-style. Annual home tours highlight Morningside's stunning architecture.
Morningside Park is a quiet refuge along beautiful Biscayne Bay and one of the few historically preserved Miami neighborhoods. If you're looking for an off-the-beaten-path park for a picnic, the Morningside Park is quiet, homey, and provides a beautiful and serene view without the hullabaloo of some of the more tourist heavy areas.
Other noteworthy neighborhood haunts include the MiMo (Miami Modern) Historic District. MiMo architecture is a post-war style that is evident in many of the buildings that house boutiques, restaurants and hotels in this area.
