If you are in the area, be sure to walk or ride your bike by the historic water tower. There is a bike path along this street that is very enjoyable to ride along and see not just the water tower, but the banyan trees as well.

Interesting water tower from the old Gables. If you are driving around pass by and see it. It has been recently restored.

Great to look at. Nothing more to it. Is not so much a destination as a stop on an architecture tour of the gables.

We happen to stop at this landmark when we were passing by the route. It's very close to Biltmore hotel. This historical landmark is located in residential area and has its own charm. It's very peaceful place but there is not much space around it for parking or so. You can stop for few minutes to take some shots.

I drive by this Coral Gables landmark daily and have watched the progress of the renovations. The renovations committee have done a beautiful job restoring the water tower. Sometime I would love to go inside and see what it's like in there.

If you are in Coral Gables, I recommend a stop at the water tower. It only takes a few minutes to look at (you can not go inside), but it is part of the history of a very interesting city.
