Home to the University of Miami, Coral Gables also hosts family-friendly attractions like the Venetian Pool, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and Zoo Miami. Coral Gables was designed by real estate developer George Merrick, and still lives up to its reputation as "the City Beautiful" with many buildings evoking Merrick's Mediterranean-style architecture. A notable example of this style, the 1926 Biltmore Hotel is a National Historic Landmark. Miracle Mile is an open-air stretch of boutiques and restaurants along Coral Way, and The Village of Merrick Park is an elegantly landscaped luxury shopping center.
Getting Around Miami
The best way to get around Miami is by public transportation (bus/metro) or by car, depending on where you are staying. If staying downtown, public transit is a convenient option. In downtown Miami, the Metromover runs every 90 seconds to 3 minutes depending on demand and operates from 5 a.m. until midnight every day.
