Coral Gables is an amalgam of outdoors and arts, often intersecting as seamlessly as planned in its inception.
An example would be Venetian Pool
. Included in the National Register of Historic Places, this is no ordinary swimming pool—it is an architectural achievement of fountains, towers, vines, and waterfalls that shape and carve caves, lagoons, and islands to comfort and entice the swimmer. More than 100,000 people dip into the Venetian Pool waters every year, its supply recycled daily through technologically-advanced filtration methods. Extensive renovation projects ensure that the attraction’s future will shine as much as its radiant past. The Lowe Art Museum
, in collaboration with the University of Miami, is one of the tourist hotspots of Coral Gables. Opening in 1952, Lowe’s became the first art museum in the southern part of the state, and its current 10,000-plus collection of art from all centuries and continents is responsible for its excellent reputation.
Coral Gables also overflows with dozens of art galleries and gobs of live theater venues and performances to enchant the everyday art lover any day of the week.
