Coral Gables stands apart from other cities in large part due to the insightful talents of city founder George Edgar Merrick who planned this jewel in the 1920's as a tribute to Florida's rich Spanish history. His eclectic vision for the perfect community was inspired by classic art forms carefully integrated into the natural beauty of South Florida.
Today, the city exuberantly reflects his Mediterranean style and grace with luxurious homes and gardens, beautiful parks and modern recreational facilities. Coral Gables is known as the cultural capital of South Florida with more live theater performances, art galleries and fine restaurants than any other city. A vibrant downtown business sector is home to hundreds of large international companies and thousands of quality merchants. Within this concentrated commercial corridor along Ponce de Leon Boulevard, an astonishing array of goods and services are available within free and easy access via the Coral Gables Trolley.
This concentration of high quality artistic and commercial venues is earning Coral Gables a reputation far and wide as a center for the fine arts and a community that embraces international culture and business opportunities.Information provided by:
