I have lived in Coral Gables, FL, for 8 years and I love living here!!! We have so many beautiful places to visit all in close proximity to each other, including The Fairchild Tropical Garden, the Venetian Pool and the Biltmore Hotel. We also have the University of Miami, which offers not only a great educational experience, but excellent cultural opportunities for Coral Gables residents, as well as a beautiful campus. We have trees and flowers every where, which are breathtaking! I love my city!!!

Coral Gables is by the far the nicest place to live in the Miami-Dade area. The residents, government, and business owners care about keeping our town beautiful.
