Coral Gables is absolutely beautiful! The Biltmore Hotel, pool and golf course are the best in the world. Historic landmark, Venetian Pool is gorgeous and pristine. The perfectly maintained tropical landscape everywhere and the wonderful ambiance in the shops and is really refeshing. I love using the great, old fashioned, Gables trolleys, (they are free of charge), but it is also a lovely to walk around town, to enjoy the "City Beautiful", as well.

I think the City of Coral Gables is the most beautiful city out there because it is maintained very well. There are lively flowers and plants in key areas such as Miracle mile and other medians and street interceptions and everything is very clean. I also love the water fountains that are abundant throughout the city. The entrances to the city are very welcoming with their historical appeal. The city has numerous parks that are very well taken care of and accessorized with items such as shades, playground and fitness equipment, walkways, pavilions, etc. Indeed it is a very beautiful city to live in.
