247WallStreet.com recently published a list, America’s 50 Best Cities to Live, and my hometown of Coral Gables, Florida came in at #32. Here is what the article had to say!
Coral Gables, Florida
> Population: 50,226
> 5-yr. population change: +1.8%
> Median household income: $100,843
> 5-yr. avg. unemployment: 3.2%
Coral Gables is a city of about 50,000 located in the Miami metro area. The city, founded in the 1920s, is notable for its physical beauty, distinguished by tree-lined, canopied streets, parks, and waterfront views. Residents have access to a number of shopping and dining establishments along the city’s “Miracle Mile.”
Additionally, Coral Gables residents are a short drive from Miami and can benefit from jobs and attractions in one of the largest cities in Florida without sharing many of the drawbacks of living in a large metropolis.
I would say that that is a very succinct but also a very apt description of Coral Gables. It is a beautiful smaller city with such convenience to all that Miami and South Florida as a whole have to offer. It is truly a wonderful place to live – and it puts me within driving distance of one of my other favorites, #21 Key West!
