The Colonnade building is situated in the heart of Coral Gables—a planned community developed in the 1920s by George Merrick. Before becoming a hotel, the Colonnade has played many roles including that of a pilot training facility, a World War II parachute factory, and housed the Colonnade Movie Studios. Today, Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables is a sight to behold with its dramatic architecture, original art collection, glass chandeliers, and grand staircase.
Founded in 1923, the church is the oldest established building in Coral Gables. George Merrick built Coral Gables Congregational Church to honor his father, a Congregational Minister. The local community know the church for its impressive music and arts program, Early Childhood Center, outreach program, and role as a “place of solace, sanctuary, and spiritual growth”. It is also providing the setting for a selection of sensational Candlelight concerts.
Open-air Candlelight concerts are returning to this exciting venue in Miami. Not only is Jungle Island a zoological park, it is also a well-known destination for special events thanks to its Treetop Ballroom and stunning outdoor spaces. Beginning as Parrot Jungle in 1936, Jungle Island has developed into a jungle of exotic animals including twin orangutans and over 300 vibrant birds. You can find this tropical oasis between downtown Miami and South Beach.
In the 1920s, the temple was constructed to house all of the Masonic organizations in Miami. The building is an example of Egyptian architecture and is adorned with countless striking features. Steps lead up to an impressive portico where four columns add to the beauty of this gem completed in 1923. From World War II to Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the temple has survived a challenging history—“built for another day and time, it challenges the imagination to adequately describe it.”
You’ll find Leows Coral Gables Hotel in the heart of The Plaza Coral Gables. The modern venue boasts breathtaking views and a 9,000 square-foot ballroom (the largest in Coral Gables). As part of The Plaza Coral Gables, the development is also home to quality retail and a public collection of curated international art. Find your seat at this stunning venue and enjoy an evening of soothing melodies.
Part farm, part venue, The Berry Farm is a multi-purpose venue that specializes in strawberries, with acres and acres filled with delicious fruit. Additionally, you can attend the many family-friendly festivals organized at the agri-tourism destination, including the Harvest Festival, Winter Festival and Strawberry Festivals. They really do bring “a piece of the country to Miami”, but they also host many weddings and private events. Later this year, The Berry Farm is also playing host to stunning open-air tributes, where you can appreciate the scenic locations, enjoy the light breeze and unwind to eternal melodies, as you’re surrounded by hundreds of candles.
Pinecrest Gardens: 14 Acres of Lushness

However, it’s the many family-friendly activities that really make it special.
