Coral Gables' planners and developers were influenced by the City Beautiful movement of the early 1900s. Coral Gables offers residents tree-shaded streets radiating from ornate plazas, grand entranceways and plenty of green space. Founded by George Merrick in 1921, it is home to some of Miami's most historic sites.
Many buildings and districts of Coral Gables are meticulously preserved as historic landmarks, offering a glimpse at Merrick's grand vision. The Coral Gables City Hall and Douglas Road Entrance are two reminders of Coral Gables' history, reflecting the predominant Mediterranean style that flavors the city.
Coral Gables is home to many fine restaurants and cafes, and is ideal for scenic walks and after-dinner strolls. It includes the campus of the University of Miami and Fairchild Tropical Garden, with 83-acres of tropical plants from around the world. Coral Gables is a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoyable entertainment right outside the city limits of Miami.
Often overlooked, this island paradise located just six miles off the coast of Miami is as rich in history as it is in lush tropical beauty. Originally discovered by Ponce de Leon, it is still sought by divers and treasure-hunters for its remarkable coral reef, and its legendary sunken treasure. Tourists also seek it out for its serene beaches, romantic atmosphere, as well as its many great attractions, restaurants and shopping.
Because it is often overlooked by tourists, Key Biscayne is the recreational spot of choice for many Miamians. From bicycling, tennis, golf and fishing to kite boarding, windsurfing, sailing and waterbiking, Key Biscayne holds some of the best that Miami has to offer.
Home of the Miami Seaquarium (the original home of "Flipper" the dolphin) and frequent host to world-class tennis events, Key Biscayne is a fantastic spot for savvy tourists. Some of Miami's finest resorts are located along Key Biscayne's scenic sandy beaches, but more than 3 miles of its valuable beachfront real estate remains undeveloped.
Key Biscayne also offers the most breathtaking view of Miami's skyline imaginable.
