Coral Gables The City Beautiful
The Stunning Manifestation of George Merrick’s Vision
With its Mediterranean-style architecture, historic landmarks and iconic canopy tree-lined streets, Coral Gables embodies its moniker, “The City Beautiful.” One of Miami’s first planned communities, Coral Gables was incorporated in 1925 and developed by George Edgar Merrick. Located four miles from Miami International Airport and home to the University of Miami, Coral Gables is a pedestrian-friendly community, offering an abundance of parks, recreational facilities, two public golf courses and waterways. Residents and visitors can also enjoy dozens of dining establishments and gourmet restaurants as well as high-end retailers. Notable “Gables” destinations include the Biltmore Hotel, Village of Merrick Park, Venetian Pool and the famed Miracle Mile, which replicates a European Old World setting with outdoor cafes and international specialty boutiques.
