Miami, Miami Beach and Coral Gables,


Florida


Modern Miami is a veritable tropical Gar-
den of Eden, June weather prevailing through-
out the year.
Miami Beach, a separate municipality
across Biscayne Bay from the city of Miami,
is directly on the Atlantic Ocean. It is con-
nected with the mainland by three causeways
which have their terminus in the northern,
central and southern sections of the city.
A delightfully attractive suburb of Miami
is Coral Gables, where imposing Spanish en-
trances and homes with lavish floral adorn-
ment convey the atmosphere of "Old Spain."
More than 1,000 miles of smooth rock-
based, hard-surfaced roads -radiate along the
ocean beach, through tropic splendors and
far out into the Everglades.
Miami is nearly 300 miles farther south
than Cairo, Egypt. The vegetation is tropical,
the cocoanut palm, royal palm, mango, pine-
apple, banana, and many other trees and
plants of the tropics growing prolifically.
Bayfront Park is on the shore of Bay
Biscayne along the southern terminus of Bis-
cayne Boulevard. The gamut of the palm
family, the Cocoanut Palm, the Royal Palm,
the Travelers' Palm, the Washingtonian Palm,
the Palmetto Palm, and Apron Palm is
spread in prodigious quantity over the curbs
and parkways of Biscayne Boulevard.
Yachting activities start early in the season
and reach their climax when hundreds of
craft gather along the picturesque Flamingo
Regatta Course for the annual Miami Beach
Regatta late in March.
One of Miami's many famous sporting
classics in the Bay Biscayne Regatta, where
noted international power boat racers meet
every year to battle for supremacy over this
renowned course.
About fifty miles south of Miami is Royal
Palm State Park, comprising 4,000 acres of
tropical jungle, preserved in primeval beauty
as a sanctuary for America's only tropical
flora and fauna.

International golf champions, tennis stars,
swimmers, yachtsmen, those who follow the
thrilling dash of racing motor boats, horse rac-
ing, boxing under a dome studded with trop-
ical moon and stars, fox hunting to hounds,
horseback riding, baseball, and other amateur
contests-all are at hand.

A sea as blue as the richest sapphire beck-
ons you to spend a sunny afternoon in the
Gulf Stream.

Fishing boats ply every day out to the gulf
stream with amateur Izaak Waltons. There is
nothing tame about battling with the large
denizens of these sub-tropical waters, and in
the excitement of bringing in that elusive,
finny rascal that is trying to get away with a
good hook, line and sinker, minor troubles are
apt to disappear. Imagine the glee of landing
a game sailfish after a thrilling battle, or
catching a bonita or any one of the strange
fish that inhabit the Gulf Stream, about 3V2
miles off shore.

Through the clear waters of the reef a few
miles south of Miami are mirrored rare beau-
ties of subsea life, amazing forests of giant
coral jungles, of sea-fans and plumes. The
deep purples and vivid reds of their hues
standing out in sharp contrast to the pure
white sand with its patches of green and blue
sea-grass. Through the branches of these coral
trees gracefully swim the fish that defy de-
scription, in color and shape, odd and color-
ful denizens of the watery depths that are as
diverting as flowers.

Motoring here is a delight. A variety of
fascinating tours intrigue the motorist. Three
great causeways to Miami for a drive along
the ocean: across the Everglades on the new
Tamiami Trail through the most fertile agri-
cultural region in the world and the home of
the gay-garbed Seminole Indian: through sub-
urbs where imposing gateways and attractive
homes carry the atmosphere of old Spain:
through Coconut Grove, noted as the site of
many extensive estates: through the Florida
Keys on the famous new Overseas Highway:
or a score of other jaunts equally interesting.
