February 23 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
Enjoy a day out on the Coral Gables Waterway! This leisure canoeing experience led by Miami EcoAdventures and Coral Gables Museum staff encompasses both nature and history in a delightful blend of unique natural vistas and historic landmarks. We’ll explore Gables’ manmade system of canals, which added an impressive 40 miles of waterfront to the City – from Biscayne Bay through the residential section, to the grand golf course at the Biltmore Hotel. A surprising amount of wildlife can be seen in the water and on the shore.
Registrants will meet at the Coral Gables Museum at 9:30am and start with a self-guided audio tour* of “Creating the Dream: George E. Merrick and His Vision for Coral Gables.” Then, we’ll board a bus to the Waterway and onto your canoe for a two-hour paddling adventure! *Guests may also catch a 1pm guided exhibit tour after the canoe tour. Fees included.
