The closest major airport is Miami International Airport, located in Miami, FL, at a distance of just 5 miles from the city center of Coral Gables, FL.
Coral Gables is served by the Miami Metrorail through 3 stations: University Station, South Miami Station and Douglas Road Station, which directly serves Coconut Grove and the Village of Merrick Park, including Miracle Mile via the Coral Gables Trolley. The University Station serves UM and the BankUnited Center, while the South Miami Station serves the Shops at Sunset Place and the surrounding South Miami neighborhood.
The modern Coral Gables Trolley is also a good option, when it comes to finding your way around, not to mention that it is perhaps the most convenient, accessible and affordable option, as well. Perhaps the most useful route for tourists is the Ponce Route, which runs north-south, offering easy access to Downtown Coral Gables, travelling from SW 8th Street, south on Ponce De Leon Boulevard, to US1 and the Douglas Metro Rail Station. There was another route, known as the Miracle Mile East-West Route, but it was suspended.
Of course, opinions vary when you ask people about the best way to get around in Coral Gables. Some of the previous visitors say that the best way to get around in the city is by car or taxi, which, however, is great, as long as you're not on a budget during your stay.
