Welcome to Coral Gables

A Timeless Gem of Elegance and Charm
 
Resting in the heart of South Florida, Coral Gables stands as a testament to the harmonious blend of Old-World charm and modern vitality. Spanning a mere 37 square miles, this meticulously planned city is a living canvas of Mediterranean-inspired architecture, lush landscapes, and a rich cultural tapestry that beckons visitors and residents alike to immerse themselves in its unique allure.
 
From its inception in the 1920s, Coral Gables was envisioned as a haven of elegance and sophistication. The city's founder, George Merrick, drew inspiration from the Mediterranean Revival architectural style, infusing it with a touch of Floridian grandeur. As a result, Coral Gables is characterized by its graceful archways, stucco facades, red-tiled roofs, and ornate details that transport anyone who enters its boundaries to a world reminiscent of European villages. This distinct architectural identity has earned the city recognition on the National Register of Historic Places, preserving its character for generations to come. A counterpoint to its antique gateway, Coral Gables is also home to over 100 multinational companies, consulates, and trade offices, lending itself a reputation of a sprawling financial hub that continues to grow.

At the heart of Coral Gables lies the iconic Miracle Mile, a vibrant commercial corridor lined with a diverse array of boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and cafes. The Merrick Park Shops feature top designer brands, cinema and many restaurants. This bustling hub reflects the city's commitment to both its storied past and its progressive present. As visitors stroll along the shaded sidewalks, the atmosphere exudes a sense of community, where locals and visitors intermingle against the backdrop of stunning architecture and swaying palm trees.
 
Coral Gables boasts a deep appreciation for the arts and culture, evident through institutions like the Coral Gables Museum, the Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre and the Lowe Art Museum. The former celebrates the city's history, offering insights into its architectural evolution and cultural heritage. The latter serves as a hub for performing arts, hosting a variety of theatrical productions that range from classic plays to contemporary works, enriching the city's cultural scene.
 
Coral Gables is not only a feast for the eyes but also a sanctuary for nature enthusiasts. The Venetian Pool, a historic public swimming pool, captures the spirit of the Italian Renaissance with its cave-like grottos, waterfalls, and signature coral rock formations.
 
The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, another gem of the city, showcases an astounding diversity of plant species in a meticulously designed setting that doubles as an educational resource for plant conservation. As well as the iconic Biltmore Hotel and Golf Course, built in 1926, the Granada Golf Course, the Riviera Country Club and Golf Course, among others.
 
Education is highly valued in Coral Gables, as evidenced by the presence of the University of Miami, housing its renowned School of Law, Miller School of Medicine and Herbert Business School, a prestigious institution that enriches the city's intellectual landscape. The university's influence extends beyond academia, with its vibrant cultural events and sports fervor contributing to the city's spirited atmosphere.
 
In Coral Gables, residential neighborhoods are as captivating as the city's public spaces. The tree-lined streets lead to elegant homes, each with its own story to tell. The commitment to aesthetics and quality of life is evident in the meticulous landscaping and community-centric designs that encourage a strong sense of belonging among residents. Today, Coral Gables offers an abundance of real estate options, including single family homes, townhomes, ivy-covered estates, and modern contemporary condominiums.
 
Beyond its physical allure, Coral Gables thrives as a close-knit community. Year-round events and festivals, such as the Coral Gables Food, Wine & Spirits Festival, and the Festival of Art + Flowers, foster connections among residents and visitors, creating memories that linger long after the events conclude.
