Coral Gables is special. It's a jewel of a city. Lush green trees form canopies over its streets, beautiful houses look as if they were plucked from the Mediterranean. There are wonderful things to do and places to go no matter your age. Just a couple of its unique features - Venetian Pool is carved out of a coral rock quarry and filled with spring water from an underground aquifer and The Biltmore Hotel is just magestic with picture perfect opportunities around every corner. Coral Gables is steeped with great history, amazing cultural venues and high quality of life. What also sets this city apart from others is the community's great sense of pride. Signs don't need to tell you when you've crossed into Coral Gables, when you get there, you'll know.

Honestly, there is nothing that can be compared to Coral Gables in the Miami-Dade area!! We are close to everything and at the same time it feels far from it all, simply a very special and truly a beautiful city!!
