      I have lived near Coral Gables, Florida for several years in the past and have to say that the area is quite conflicting when you consider whether it is a nice place to live or not. On the outside, the area of Coral Gables is spectacularly beautiful, as the city sits just south of Miami and occupies the beaches and neighborhoods in that region. Although the pristine beaches and palm trees make the area sparkle, the reality is that there is a tremendous amount of crime and the area is quite dangerous.

      Over the last several years, the crime rate has risen dramatically in the area, specifically in the number of robberies and home invasions. A major problem in the area is the fact that police agencies have been telling people that the crime rate has been dropping, yet the statistical evidence is quite the contrary. It seems as if the police in the area know that the crime rate is literally exploding and don't want to see people flee the area.

      There is no doubt that there is a ton of things to do in Coral Gables, however. Coral Gables occupies a lengthy stretch of some absolutely stunning beaches, which can be explored through ocean activities such as snorkeling, swimming, surfing and fishing. The nightlife in this area is without a doubt some of the best in the country, as well as the restaurants. There is a reason that people enjoy vacationing in south beach so much and Coral Gables is really an extension of the city, although it is more like the suburbs. If you can stomach the rising crime rate that has been inflicting this area, it very well may be a great place to live.
