Coral Gables Neighborhood Guide


Coral Gables, one of the oldest areas of South Florida, was founded in 1925, and is one of the country’s first planned communities. It is full of beautiful parks, some of the area’s best restaurants, upscale agalleries, theaters and a selection of night time activities sure to please anyone. Lush vegetation, terracotta roofs, and beautifully painted homes and businesses give Coral Gables a unique feeling.

Much of Coral Gables is protected under a Historic Preservation Ordinance, so if you live here there’s no need to worry that the community will lose its charm.

The City of Coral Gables is in the midst of implementing its Neighborhood Renaissance program which will make it even a better choice for retirees and young families alike. The program includes building a new senior center, development of new parks, restoration of historic monuments and new pedestrian-friendly improvements across the city.
