Things to Do in Coral Gables
With a well-earned degree in hand, it’s time to unwind with friends and family in the sunny ‘City Beautiful.’ We recommend exploring the vibrant city by choosing open-air activities such as soaking up the sun at the nearby beaches, exploring the tropics at Coral Gables’ botanical gardens, or wandering among winding canals. Lastly, don’t forget to treat yourself to something special at one of the many outdoor shopping destinations in Coral Gables and Lower Miami.
