The City of Coral Gables wishes you a happy and healthy 2018 and invites you to include us in your New Year’s resolutions. Here are a few ideas:
Live a more active lifestyle: Play tennis at Salvadore Park. Hop on the Trolley. Shoot hoops at the Youth Center. Stroll along tree-lined streets. Walk around the gardens at Fairchild. Sign up for a 5K charity run. Learn to dance.
Add more culture to your life: Take a tour of the Coral Gables Museum. Attend more theatrical plays. Go to book readings. Watch independent art films. Visit the Lowe Art Museum. Meet up with good friends for a cup of coffee.
Celebrate the Coral Gables story: Read a book about George Merrick. Learn more about the Merrick House. Have an afternoon tea at the Biltmore Hotel. Enjoy the wonderment of days gone by. Visit our local historic landmarks.
Pay it forward: Volunteer at a local school. Do a wellness check on your elderly neighbor. Help a non-profit. Donate your time to a good cause. Make a random act of kindness.
Learn something new: Explore the offerings at the Adult Activity Center. Check out a book from the Coral Gables Branch Library. Develop a new hobby. Lean a new language.
Think future, think green: Reuse, reduce and recycle. Take a gardening workshop at the Farmers Market. Switch to LED light bulbs. Bring a reusable bag when grocery shopping. Plant more trees. Ditch the car and ride a bike.
Be a good neighbor: Obey the speed limits. Pick up after your pet and dispose of it properly. Don’t block the sidewalks with your vehicle. Help your neighbors in times of emergencies. If you see something, say something.
