City of Coral Gables

SO CLOSE . . .

YET A WORLD AWAY

 

The City Beautiful is known for its 1920’s era authentic Mediterranean revival architecture, canopied boulevards, world-famous shopping along the Miracle Mile, landmarks including the Biltmore Hotel and Venetian Pool, championship golf courses, prestigious country clubs, Lowe Art Museum, Salvador Park, Coral Gables Historic Museum and Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The city is home to the region’s finest university as well as primary and secondary schools including the top-rated University of Miami.

 

Founded by visionary George Merrick, Coral Gables was developed as one of the first gated, master-planned communities in the United States. Today, the city is known as Miami’s premier neighborhood and like Paris, Rome, and other world-class cities, enjoys a classic sophistication with European-style cafes and eateries, grand galleries, and classic entertainment options, as well as timeless fountains, gardens, statuaries and Mediterranean architecture found on nearly every street corner.
