According to their residents, the neighborhoods are two of the most peaceful suburban communities in West Miami, and that's saying a lot!
You see, while both are in a centric area, they're still a few minutes away from the downtown area, so you won't usually find a lot of ruckus within the vicinity.
That's, of course, excluding traffic at Flagler Street, which is rampant at certain times of the day.
Aside from that, the two communities are pleasantly serene and are the perfect neighborhoods to chill and relax amidst the metro.
Another thing is that they're both surrounded by lush, small, and huge parks, so if you're looking to have a quick nature walk, go on a picnic with the family, or just read a novel under a tree, just walk a few minutes to the nearest park!
Aside from roaming the residential and commercial streets of Coral Terrace and Flagami, there's more to explore on the other side of town, especially since the neighborhoods are walkable and relatively bikeable.
Nearby neighborhoods you can visit include West Flagler, Coral Way, Allapattah, Little Havana, Northeast Coconut Grove, Southwest Coconut Grove, and Overtown.
These communities offer proximity to the two areas and tourist destinations unique to their neighborhood that I'm sure you'll find interesting.
Aside from being pedestrian-friendly, they're also accessible to public transportation, so you can drive or take a bus to farther Miami areas, like Downtown, Wynwood-Edgewater, and Little Havana.
