Take a trip to Coral Gables
Visit ‘The City Beautiful’ with its historic houses, Mediterranean-style buildings and tree-lined streets. This is one of South Florida’s oldest cities, having been founded in 1925 by George Merrick. What the city lacks in waterfront views, it more than makes up for with chic boutiques, cultural attractions and the spring-fed Venetian Pool with its waterfalls, grottos and lush foliage. So join us as we get lost in one of the most beautiful places in Miami.

Plenty of things to do
Museums & historical houses to explore
This is the restored boyhood home of George E. Merrick, who founded the city of Coral Gables in the 1920s. Although the homestead was purchased by the family in 1899, it has been restored to the 1920s period and filled with the Merrick family’s art, furniture and personal treasures to serve as a tribute to the real estate developer who built one of the first planned communities in the country.
Cauley Square Historic Village
Step back in time at the Cauley Square Historic Village and get an authentic taste of Old Florida at its best. Stroll along the landscaped pathways, take a seat in the tea room and browse the antique shops and boutiques. Tucked away in the gardens, there’s also a 1920s bar for beer and wine with live music every Friday and Saturday.
Coral Castle Museum
The Coral Castle Museum in Homestead is the handiwork of a tiny Latvian immigrant who, despite only weighing 100 pounds, moved and sculpted more than 1,000 tonnes of coral rock for nearly 30 years as a tribute to his long-lost love.
Galleries & theatres
Lowe Art Museum
What began as three small classrooms in 1950 soon became South Florida’s first official art museum. The Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami now features more than 17,000 objects, with Renaissance and Baroque pieces as well Native American and Asian art.
Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theater
