I Heart Coral Gables
Go ahead and add “Most Romantic City in Florida” to the list of monikers attributed to Coral Gables.
According to Livability.com’s recent feature, America’s Top 10 Romantic Cities for 2013, Coral Gables is the 9th most romantic city in the US.
Called “The City Beautiful”, Coral Gables, FL offers a romantic setting for couples to enjoy. Flourishing gardens, luxurious hotels and Mediterranean Revival-style architecture create an elevated aesthetic within this city by the beach.
Today’s residents still enjoy the city’s wide avenues, green spaces, monumental buildings and ornate plazas.
Many restaurants in Coral Gables provide settings for romantic dinners, too.
Museums, theaters and several music venues round out the entertainment options in Coral Gables.
When compiling this list, Livability.com set out to find cities with amenities that cater to couples. They looked for places with alluring natural attractions (Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Venetian Pool), fine dining (too many restaurants to name) and other activities that awaken the body and mind (Coral Gables Museum, Lowe Art Museum, Coral Gables Art Cinema, Bill Cosford Cinema, Gables Stage, Miracle Theater and Prana Yoga come to mind).
They also researched similar lists from other media outlets and reviews from sites, such as Trip Advisor and Yelp, and cross-referenced their research against the amenities of their 500 Livability.com cities to make their picks for the best cities for romantic interludes.
With all this love in the air, it’s only right that the City Beautiful, along with the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce and the Business Improvement District, introduce the 1st Annual Valentine’s Day Storefront Display Awards Program to acknowledge businesses who creatively adorn their window displays in romantic Valentine’s Day themes.
