Grew up around Coral Gables and moved in to the City Beautiful in 1986. We could not think of a better place to raise our own four kids.

Grew up in South Florida and always loved to cruise the majestic, lush, and tropical neighborhoods of the Gables. The Biltmore, Fairchild Tropical Gardens, and the ocean. That sums it up for me in Coral gables.
