Creative spaces that bring art, food and music together are popping-up in cities across the country and are becoming meccas for new ideas, and local experiences. Bradley Hasemeyer is taking a look at three spots you have to see.

1.  River North Art District in Denver, CO

They are a hub for creativity entrepreneurism and of course art. The small neighborhood is painted in murals, and is home to over 250 experimental art galleries. RiNo is known for being experimental, so is the food. They have some of the top newest restaurants in all of Denver, not to mention the best food trucks, wineries, and distilleries.

2.  Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village in Sedona, AZ

This spot highlights the native landscapes and culture of the region, and Tlaquepaque is home to nineteen different art galleries. One includes an authentic American Western sculpture and wildlife bronzes. It’s also home to a gold medal-winning brewery, and hundreds of events year-round. The biggest one is the Festival of Lights in December that kicks-off the holiday season.

3.  Miami Design District and Wynwood in Miami, FL

The whole neighborhood is one giant canvas for the world's best street artists. It's been called the museum of the streets. The Wynwood, one of the largest creative communities in the country, was once a neglected warehouse in Miami. The arrival of Art Basel, a global art festival, helped transform the area into one of the most impressive collections of street art in the world.

From art, to food and music, these three cultural spaces are sure to get your creative juices flowing.
