Coral Gables is an arty but upscale community that prides itself on walkability, though it’s only a short train ride from a true metropolis; the Miami Metrorail makes three stops inside city lines. Developer George E. Merrick designed and built Coral Gables in 1922, seeing it as his chance to bring the aesthetics of the country’s City Beautiful movement to South Florida. Tree-lined residential streets surround a downtown core of high-rise office buildings, dining, entertainment and shopping avenues. The University of Miami main campus is here, and Coral Gables is home to the famous Biltmore Hotel. Mediterranean in its palm-shaded style, fiercely protective of its 1920s-boomtime character, and filled with parks, museums, historical places, academics and business, Coral Gables represents a rare and unique level of cultural balance.
Often referred to by locals as “the grove,” Coconut Grove is the oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood in Miami. The Miami-Dade County, Florida community is south of the neighborhoods of Brickell and The Roads and east of Coral Gables. The eastern border of Coconut Grove is Biscayne Bay. Coconut Grove is home to freewheeling tycoons, artists, writers and musicians and known for its eccentrics, and free spirits. As Miami’s original art district, the grove’s art scene offers something for everyone. Coconut Grove is also known for its eclectic selection of restaurants and open air cafes. You’ll find Italian, Peruvian, Indian, Mexican, Japanese, Mediterranean, French, Italian, Argentine, pan-Latin, pan-Asian, vegetarian, seafood and American fare all within just a few blocks. After dark, the grove becomes a nightlife destination frequented by young professionals and students from the nearby University of Miami and Florida International University.
