"Noisy and Cluttered, yet Friendly and Survivable"

SW 40 Street in Miami, Florida is full of a variety of different shopping centers, schools, and eventually residential properties. Midway along the span of this street it becomes SW 42 Street for a while, eventually returning to SW 40 Street. The common name for this street is Bird Road. With your usual array of big city fast food restaurants such as McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, and Taco Bell, SW 40 Street depicts the typical "on the move" mentality, however, it is flooded with decent schools and parks making it ideal for the working family.

"Connects all the dots in Coral Gables"

Coral Gables is (intentionally) difficult to navigate. There a diagonal roads, obstacles, and numerous forking paths. But Coral Gables is a tall, narrow, neighborhood, and as one of only two major north-south road, Granada Blvd connects most of the major points of interest. On Granada, you will pass by the University of Miami, Doctor's Hospital, the Biltmore golf course, the Granada golf course, and Venetian Pool. This is a great help after you've been lost for half an hour in the Coral Gables street maze, which happens even to natives. Of course, the entire trip is standard Gables fare: immaculately landscaped and kept, safe, toney, and incredibly boring.
