Far beyond the scope of Miami, Coral Gables is one of the most charming cities in America thanks to George Merrick, a talented visionary who developed his dream into an everyday life style in the 1920s.
Though a 10-minute drive from downtown or South Miami, the exclusive enclave known as the City Beautiful gives its staggering array of international residents little reason to leave. A perfect day might start at the premier local coffee bar, followed by a round of golf at one of several public courses and country clubs, browsing bestsellers at Miami’s top independent book store, tucking into dinner at hot spots along and around Miracle Mile, and a nightcap set to live jazz at the Biltmore hotel, Merrick’s piece de resistance.
