Places to visit, where to eat, where to stay, entertainment, and the annual not to be missed event on July 13:  here’s your guide for a day exploring Overtown, one of Miami’s most historic areas. There’s no better neighborhood to find authentic soul food or experience an amateur night showcase that’s modeled after the historic Apollo Theater’s long-running one in New York City. And rivaling Wynwood’s famous street murals are those of the late artist Purvis Young, born in Overtown. The building façades and architecture harken back to the early 1900s when black performers played, ate and stayed here. A new B & B, too, a bargain at rates starting at $100 a night.
