Shop downtown Coral Gables’ upscale Miracle Mile, a retail paradise where you’ll find live theatre and fine dining as well as designer shops. On 83 acres of botanical beauty, the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden offers a natural refuge for the family. Tour the grounds with a guide or on a tram, or attend one of the Garden’s many seasonal special events. Visit the campus of The University of Miami, which spans 239 acres in the center of Coral Gables.
