"What is 12th Ave in Miami?"

12th Avenue has 2 sides; the one North of Flagler St and the one South of Flagler Street.

Around NW 7th Street and NW 12th Ave, cross over the little bridge over the Miami River into Jackson Memorial Hospital and a Medical district. Find the 112 Airport highway right along this route.

Head further North and find yourself going in to the NW's neighborhoods, low income housing, more warehouse properties, and newer housing mixed with regular housing even more North away from the city limits. The metrorail runs parallel to 12th Avenue at one point (Civic Center district), making it easy and convenient to travel to from different parts of the city. Although it may look like the neighborhoods are a little dangerous; try not to be wondering around at late hours if you don't know what you are doing.

Historic sites on this road are Fidel Castro's Miami-Home back in the 'old days'. A coral-built small building, barely noticeable, now a discount dollar store rests between Flagler Street and NW 2nd Street on 12th Avenue: look for it on a corner right off the Ave.

Head South on 12th Avenue and it's SW 12th Avenue. This road will lead you to "the roads", "the gables", and a hop away in to US1 and all the different options that it offers at this point. Local small markets (bodegas) along the way and small businesses with plenty residential land.

Preferrable to commute during the day. Not because of the crime, but because there's really nothing to do after dark unless you live or know someone around this area, or need to catch the Dolphin Expy(836). There is an exit on the Dolphin Expy 836 coming from the beaches.
* (No westbound entrance to 836 off 12th Avenue [only Eastbound off 12th Ave], use 17th Ave for W)*
[TIP] - (Last exit on 836 Eastbound before heading into the beach is Exit NW 17th Ave, not 12th Avenue)

Use 12th Ave as an option to jump onto 395 to The Beachesor from The Dolphin Expy E(836).

Get lost on 12th Avenue? Just head South to US1 at the end of SW 12th Ave, and hop onto I95 (although if you're lost, you should really be looking at a map and orientate yourself logistically also).

See reviews on I95 to find out your options on this highway and to figure out your different routes around the city.
