Standing out as a rare pearl in South Florida, this community was built to create a harmony with the environment and a grand Mediterranean Revival architectural style. Coral Gables was incorporated in 1925 and is known as the City Beautiful which was influenced by Frederick Law Olmstead a landscape architect who designed New York’s Central Park. This movement inspired the development of ornate plazas, monumental buildings, winding roadways, wide tree lined avenues, green space and fountains throughout the city. The city planners continue to keep all these elements of style today. Every business was less than a two-block walk making this an ideal city. A new free circulator trolly system that was put into effect in 2003 runs down Ponce de Leon Boulevard.
