Welcome to Coral Gables

City of exquisite beauty where history and nature dominate the atmosphere
The city of Coral Gables—south of Miami and just below Coconut Grove—is also known as “The City Beautiful” with good reason. The city boasts waterfront views on its southernmost end, verdant parks, historic landmarks ensconced in ivy and brimming with architectural magnificence, exclusive and gated communities, sophisticated boutiques, culinary masters, and an overall sense of stateliness-meets-modernity.
Coral Gables was created in the 1920s by George Merrick during the Florida Land Boom and was one of the first planned communities. Strictly zoned, Coral Gables was built for a world-class residential lifestyle, where the commercial districts are contained in a city-center mecca, and there’s no shortage of beauty. The city has since become a historic and cultural hotspot within the Greater Miami Area. 
Modern Coral Gables has several luxury subdivisions like Cocoplum, Tahiti Beach, Gables Estates, Gables by the Sea, Old Cutler Bay, Journeys End, Ponce Davis and Snapper Creek that have their own character. Find your perfect fit in the variety of architecture, including sprawling mansions on acre lots, ultra-luxe modern estates with infinity pools and airy floor plans, massive art deco homes with private docks perfect for boaters; mid-century bungalows with sleek interiors, and historic Spanish Colonials with sophisticated island vibes.

What to Love

  • Affluent, spirited population dedicated to creating a great community
  • Just fifteen minutes from Downtown Miami
  • Incredible school systems, home of the U, University of Miami
  • Stunning architecture and deep history

People & Lifestyle

Coral Gables is incredibly family-oriented—many of South Florida’s premier families reside in these beautiful, private communities. In addition to its many restaurants, dining, and shopping opportunities that make it easy to enjoy a night out with friends and family, Coral Gables has excellent private schools and highly-rated public schools that make it an enticing and advantageous neighborhood.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Coral Gables houses one of South Florida’s most visited and prized shopping districts: Miracle Mile and Downtown Coral Gables. The pulse of the city, the downtown district, boasts everything from boutiques, specialty stores, and art galleries to live theater and award-winning cuisine. Among the tree-lined streets of Miracle Mile, you’ll encounter over 350 merchants whose picturesque storefronts make the perfect accent to this European-style epicenter. 
Included in downtown Coral Gables’ brilliant cuisine are restaurants like Hillstone, located conveniently on Miracle Mile. This upscale eatery serves handcrafted sushi, prime USDA steaks, and mouth-watering cocktails, all within a sophisticated setting. Just off the pedestrian-friendly strip, Caffe Abbracci pairs gorgeous Italian glassworks and art pieces with impeccably executed Italian favorites with an elevated twist, like black lobster ravioli and veal scallopini.
Further north of Miracle Mile, Bachour is a bakery and restaurant run by renowned pastry chef Antonio Bachour. Their masterfully-crafted confectionaries and creative desserts have brought Bachour fame, and they’re the reason his flagship bakery is a must-visit for anyone in the Greater Miami Area. The interior of Eating House Miami is covered in remarkable graffiti artworks, and their menu specializing in New American small plates utilizes locally-sourced, fresh ingredients. Closer to the south, Fiola offers tasty Italian fare with an emphasis on mindful, healthy eating, and if you go all the way to the coast, you’ll run into Redfish. Set in the resplendent Matheson Hammock Park, this restaurant is helmed by famous chef Adrienne Calvo, who mixes New American seafood with a waterfront dining experience.

Things to Do

Unsurprisingly, much of the activity in Coral Gables is centered around its illustrious beauty and experiences. The city has several striking historical landmarks that are must-visits, including The Biltmore Hotel. Built in 1926 by the city’s founder, George Merrick, The Biltmore Hotel has had a vast and fascinating history. Now, the location is best known as a premier resort hotel with spa treatments, an 18-hole championship golf course, private cabanas, and inspiring cuisine. Fed with spring water from an underground aquifer, the 820,000-gallon Venetian Pool is a stunning example of Coral Gables’ ornate architecture, history, and luxury. 
If the history isn’t enough to sway you, the arresting beauty of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden will. The site has a staggering 83 acres of remarkable exhibits and gardens and has the only rainforest in the entire United States. The variety of plant life is global, and the park is also a dedicated conservation research facility.
