Coral Gables, Florida: 1920s Magnificence Alongside Cuban Culture
A trolley runs along Ponce de Leòn Boulevard in Coral Gables, a city southwest of Miami. The trolley is testament to the throwback feel of Coral Gables, which has numerous boulevards lined with Mediterranean Revival mansions.
Throughout town, signs demarcating local and national landmarks pop into view as frequently as brown anole lizards dart across the sidewalk. Walk through avenues such as Coral Way and you'll find fluted columns and terra-cotta tiles on Venetian-inspired villas, including the Merrick House, the former manor of Coral Gables' founder, George Edgar Merrick. To the south, the Miracle Mile features popular restaurants and independent boutiques.
You can experience an alternate history of the area in the nearby Miami neighborhood of Little Havana. Calle Ocho, or Eighth Street, brims with Spanish-language cafés and restaurants that serve everything from coconut-laden Nicaraguan cuisine to cuban sandwiches pressed as flat as an elephant's flip-flops. Nestled at the center of Calle Ocho is Domino Park, where masters of the classic game click together the game tiles from dawn until dusk. The area buzzes with live music, gallery openings, and free walking tours led by historian Dr. Paul George during Viernes Culturales—or Cultural Fridays—held on the last week of every month.
