Description

Coral Gables’ source of beauty lies in the local nature, Mediterranean revival-style architecture, and culture. The town is home to the renowned University of Miami, the historic Biltmore Hotel, and the world-class Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens. From residences to offices, the buildings demonstrate awe-inspiring architecture and the natural surroundings that make south Florida such a prominent destination. The city and community strive to maintain excellence in its residential properties, international influence, and preservation of nature.

Popular attractions distinct to this town range from Casa Bacardi to Lowe Art Museum. Locals love being greeted by the Granada Entrance and passing De Soto Fountain, the Venetian Pool, and Alhambra Water Tower. You may also enjoy Puerta del Sol or Piag.

Coral Gables has several exciting cultural activities offered year-round. An annual summer concert series is popular in the community, as well as various theatre companies that host productions ranging from Broadway to Shakespeare adaptations. The city is also home to more than 30 fine art galleries.

Visitors can savor time golfing at the country club, boating through waterways, relaxing at the Venetian Pool, or shopping at Merrick Park. The City Beautiful offers a comfortable, pristine setting for a beach vacation.

Coral Gables is rich in history and full of wonderful people. I especially love the architecture and landscaping. It is truly a beautiful City and deserves to be recognized as such.
