Coral Gables, FL

When we were visiting Coral Gables, I noticed that the place looks a little bit old but it's very cultural. The population is around 46 800 inhabitants, so it can be considered as a small city.

Coral Gables trolley

There's a trolley that runs around the city and it looks like old fashion.

But it's a nice vehicle and people that use the service say it's very comfortable, clean and always conducted by a polite driver. 

My first impression was that Coral Gables was a place because I was running down an avenue I saw houses with security bars on doors and windows.

So, I thought it was a dangerous city. But I was completely wrong !

Then I found out that the houses are like that not because the city is not safe, the bars is from a traditional style that came with the colonization.

Some people that live in Coral Gables are Spanish decedent who loves some decoration that resembles Spain. That's also the reason the streets have names like Navarre, Poncio de Leon, etc.

The beautiful houses in Coral Gables

The city of Coral Gables is one of the most expensive to live in and when running around the place it's possible to see some modern mansions. 

Coral Gables has a "natural face", you realize that some houses were built respecting a tree space, for example, different from other cities where the trees are simply removed to give space for building and houses.

When I found the hidden places in the city, I ended up being enchanted with the beauty around the houses. Now that I know better the other part of the city, I can say that it is worth visiting.

The hidden trail

We found a trail that is used by the locals to ride a bicycle, walk the dog, jog or have some other activity close to nature.

Some people were playing Tarzan on the trail's trees, runners, people with their dogs, and even a man with a mini-car.

We visited a park across the street, but as we were late for such a tour, it was not worth paying to get in on that day.

Visiting the Park

The park is very big, if you visit the place, just make sure you have at least a half a day full day to enjoy everything, but if you really love the nature, a full day walking around the place is even better.
