Coral Gables serves as a major employment center, hub for luxury shops, and more. Home to 20+ consulates and foreign government offices and 140+ multinational corporations, Coral Gables has also established relationships with six sister cities: Cartagena, Colombia; Quito, Ecuador; Aix-en Provence, France; La Antigua, Guatemala; Province of Pisa, Italy; and Granada, Spain. As such, Coral Gables is known as the "International City."
Fratellino, Hillstone, Havana Harry's, and Seasons 52 are a few of the many restaurants locals recommend for a delicious meal and delightful experience. On Miracle Mile, the downtown of Coral Gables, you can find anything from quality restaurants to fine bridal shops.
The city has it all – independent bookstores, public tennis courts, bike paths, boutiques and retail shops, and lush hotels such as The Biltmore. Additionally, The Village of Merrick Park is an internationally recognized shopping mall located in the heart of Coral Gables, and contains numerous high-end stores.
Some of the city's notable landmarks include the Venetian Pool, Douglas Entrance, and multitudes of fine residences. Decorated with green avenues and distinguished architecture, it's no wonder why Coral Gables is regarded as "The City Beautiful."
