Coral Gables lives up to its nickname The City Beautiful with ivy-covered mansions, attractive Mediterranean Revival single-family homes, and striking 1920s architectural landmarks such as the Venetian Pool, Douglas Entrance, and Miami Biltmore Hotel. This international community also features captivating mid-century and contemporary properties showcasing the impeccable work of renowned architects.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Coral Gables’ visionary developer George Merrick planned a downtown commercial stretch that has evolved over the past century into the Miracle Mile. This attractively landscaped street runs east to west through Coral Gables and is lined with some of South Florida’s most premier shopping, dining, theaters, and art galleries. Hillstone is one of the Miracle Mile’s many standout restaurants. Hillstone offers impeccable service and a mix of classic American steakhouse fare and sublime salads and sushi rolls. Christy’s Steakhouse on Ponce de Leon Boulevard serves sublime steaks and superb seafood in an elegant old-world setting. Close to the University of Miami campus, enjoy authentic regional Italian dishes in a refined setting at Fiola or head to Miami’s Best Pizza for New York-style pies and slices that live up to the restaurant’s lofty name.

Things to Do

Coral Gables stretches to the Biscayne Bay waterfront in the south, and the southernmost portion of the community is comprised of beautiful parks and botanical gardens. The gorgeous 83-acre Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden contains a collection of rare tropical plants, including cycads, flowering trees, palms, and vines. Fairchild also has a large butterfly house and art exhibits. A range of educational programs and festivals are programmed at the Fairchild Botanic Garden throughout the year.
Several golf courses and country clubs are located north of the University of Miami campus at Coral Gables’ west. Riviera Country Club offers exceptional facilities including a golf course, clubhouse, tennis courts, and swimming pools. This exclusive members’ club has undergone extensive renovation in recent years with a $10 million revamp of the golf course being completed in 2016 and a new $35 million clubhouse being unveiled in 2018.

Amenities at this grand Mediterranean Revival hotel include an 18-hole Donald Ross golf course, a full-service European-style spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis courts, and the largest hotel pool on the United States’ East Coast. The picturesque 1923 Venetian Pool is another historic Coral Gables landmark. The pool’s beautiful landscaping includes waterfalls, a rock hill for diving, and cave-like grottos.
