Coral Gables is the most beautiful town in South Florida. Its Mediterranean Revival architectural style, its tropical landscapes, its great restaurants all add up to its charm. I am lucky to work in this place. One of the few places in Miami-Dade County where you can park your car or leave it home and just walk everywhere.

Coral Gables is the Most Beautiful town. They carefully maintain so many historic landmarks such at The Biltmore Hotel and Golf Course, The Venetian Pool, the many Coral Fountains, etc. Every where you turn there are massive old banyan trees which line the streets - just beautiful!!

This town is full of unique Spanish architecture and is home to a diverse community. I enjoy the museum displays, the theatre performances, and the constant musical events. It is not only a place of residence or entertainment, it is a place of learning and culture.
