Coral Gables also known as “The City Beautiful," is famous for its tree-lined boulevards, ivy-covered mansions and historical landmarks such as the world-famous Biltmore Hotel and the Venetian Pool, both of these built in the 1920s. Coral Gables is located adjacent to Miami, putting it within easy reach of the Port of Miami, Miami International Airport, Miami Beach and other destinations. Within Coral Gables, one finds the shopping and dining paradise of the "Miracle Mile," the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden and many other attractions. In addition, the University of Miami is based here.
Coral Gables' unique past is evident today, not only in the preservation of its architecture and landmarks, but in the spirit of its residents and the philosophy that guides its government.
George Merrick’s dream to create a city that would offer every amenity to its residents and at the same time would become a center for international business came true and now Coral Gables is home to approximately 155 multinationals and 26 consulates and trade offices. It is also known as the Fine Dining Capital of South Florida and has the highest concentration of live theater in Miami-Dade County.
Growth in the commercial sector has brought a wealth of new activities for residents, including nighttime entertainment, live music, casual and fine dining, and new retail options. It has also helped maintain low property taxes. At the same time, the residential areas have remained protected from commercial intrusion.
Cultural offerings are part of the everyday experience in Coral Gables. The city is rich with culture -from Gallery Night the first Friday of the month, art cinema to live theater and much more.
