It is very important to have a good detailed map of Coral Gables if you arent familir with the area. The street names are not listed on typical street signs, they are on stone markers located on the corner of the street, making driving, looking for streets, and reading a map quite difficult.
Coral Gables, by local ordinance, does not put up street signs. Instead, the Gables has white stones placed on the ground with tiny black lettering which indicate the street. For this reason, ordinary directions in Coral Gables are worthless to tourists, or even locals at times. Always ask how many streets away from a main thoroughfare, i.e. Miracle Mile, Alhambra, LeJeune, a spot is located or ask for a landmark. This is especially true if you are driving around at night.
