Coral Gables is an elegantly laid out, pedestrian-friendly city boasting tropical foliage, charming boutiques and architectural grandeur. Exciting professional theatre soars from the stages of Actors’ Playhouse, conveniently located in Downtown Coral Gables. The historic Miracle Theatre, magnificently restored, is now the home of this leading regional performing arts Company and a splendid center of community cultural activity.

as a sub teacher, having seen much of Miami's public school offerings, CG's schools are simply the best. As a foodie their is simply nothing no where that comes close for either quality or variety. It is also simply the most beautiful city in the state in a what is otherwise a rather bland. A big time standout.
