A beautiful charming town. Fabulous weather with plenty of boutique shops, plenty of restaurants and delightful environment.

Had a family gathering at the wonderful Biltmore Hotel in January 2011. Coral Gables was a great location for that. Many nice restaurants away from the resort hotel too. Super shopping.
