Coral Gables

Trip Planner USA  /  Florida  /  Coral Gables
Coral Gables, officially the City of Coral Gables, is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States, located in the southwest of Downtown Miami. According to United States Census Bureau estimates conducted in 2013, the city had a population of 49,631. Coral Gables is home to the University of Miami.HistoryCoral Gables was one of the first planned communities, and prefigured the development of the gated community and the homeowners association. It is famous for its strict zoning regulations. The city was developed by George Edgar Merrick during the Florida land boom of the 1920s. The city's architecture is almost entirely Mediterranean Revival style. By 1926, the city covered 10000acre and had netted $150 million in sales, with over $100 million spent on development.Merrick designed the downtown commercial district to be only four blocks wide and more than two miles (3 km) long. The main artery bisected the business district. Merrick could boast that every business in Coral Gables was less than a two-block walk. The city used to have an electric trolley system, which was replaced by the popularity of modern automobiles, but now a new free circulator trolley system, initiated in November 2003, runs down Ponce de León Boulevard.
