Welcome to Coral Gables, the City Beautiful.

Located in the heart of Miami, Coral Gables is a world-class city with a hometown feel. With a graceful blend of old world elegance and tropical charm, Coral Gables is a dream made reality by entrepreneur George Merrick almost a century ago.

Today, it’s recognized as an international city with numerous consulates, multinational corporations and a top-tier university, University of Miami.

Getting to and around the city of Coral Gables is a breeze. It’s less than 5 miles from Miami international airport and minutes from Port of Miami. The city’s free vintage trolleys serve the downtown, carrying more than a million passengers a year. They connect to Miami-Dade’s metro rail and mass transit, making it easy to discover the City Beautiful.

The city’s high quality amenities include great shopping and culinary scenes, chef-driven restaurants, outdoor cafes, chic shopping, bridal boutiques and one-of-a-kind retailers are all located in a tree-lined downtown district. Downtown Coral Gables’ wide sidewalks create a walkable environment that’s complete with outdoor dining, public art and more.

The City is reaching new heights. Each trip to Downtown boasts new experiences for locals and visitors alike. A modern mainstream, Miracle Mile is an ideal dine, shop and stroll boulevard known for its personal service, attention to detail and special items you can’t find anywhere else.

Take a walk to Giralda Plaza, Coral Gables’ only pedestrian promenade, known as Restaurant Row. You’ll feel right at home dining al-fresco year round. It has ambiance like no other place and is home to numerous creative and cultivated art exhibits that take place several times a year.

While in the Downtown corridor, have the Freebee take you to your next hot spot. It’s a free, on-demand electric car that takes you wherever you want to go next.

With a highly active event calendar, many cultural venues call Downtown Coral Gables home.
