Miami - Coral Gables

Coral Gables, Miami
Coral Gables city hall

Coral Gables is a lovely residential city, where my cousin lives. In fact, this place is the first we saw in Miami, as she kindly came to pick us up. This is the picture we, europeans, have out of the life in the US. Specially cool to visit in Christmas time, so we could check the huge decorations laid around some of the biggest mansions. We failed to take a dip in the Venetian Pool, as it was closed for renovations due beginning of 2017, so we can't show much. Only give you a sincere tip, based on knowing that built out of tons of rocks quarried out in 1923, this is one of the few pools listed on the National Register of Historic Places - caption that and make sure to check it out for me,  please!

We walked all the way to Coconut Grove, but I'd not advise you to do that - as it is the kind of useless walk through tough hoods we sometimes engage in, just for the sake of walking...
