Coral Gables is also known by many as The City Beautiful, and for good reason. This neighborhood is lush, tropical and, simply put, beautiful. Coral Gables is one of Florida’s first intentionally planned cities, created by George Merrick in 1925. Can you picture the Mediterranean style architecture that this area is so well known for? We can thank Merrick for that. Have you noticed the Spanish street names? Merrick chose these names after reading Washington Irving’s book, Tales of the Alhambra. While Merrick’s influence on the area was great, he died nearly penniless.
Today, Coral Gables is thriving and considered by many to be the ultimate suburb. There are so many things to do that residents and visitors often have trouble deciding!
