About Doral, Florida

Doral is a young city in Miami. Set up in the 1950s, it’s been attracting visitors ever since.

Alfred and Doris Kaskel were the first to build on this land. They combined their names to come up with the now famous 'Doral'. It's a sweet story, and you can learn more about it in the local museums.

Over the years, Doral became famous for its pristine and challenging golf courses. Make sure you have a swing or two during your stay. Or, at least visit the Doral Country Club for a meal. The food is divine!

Whether you come here to perfect your golf swing, or stretch out on the beach, there's bound to be something that will keep you entertained.

There are lots of shops and recreational areas for you to explore, and a glorious mix of restaurants that serve great food every day. The fresh seafood is our favorite!

What to do

As we mentioned, you have to visit Doral Country Club. It would be almost criminal to come all the way out here and miss it.

After all, it was one of the main reasons the area was built. Choose from the Blue, Red and par-3 golf courses, then just settle in for a great day.

If you're feeling adventurous, head to Doral Central Park, where you can follow the trails and be amazed by the views. Come in the evening (when it's a bit cooler) for a moonlit stroll.

There are plenty of other parks, too – Downtown and Meadow parks are great for the kids – they have really exciting play areas!

Fancy a bit of shopping? Head to Miami International Mall. It's the best place around for a day's shopping and you're almost guaranteed to score a bargain!

There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Doral. So, why not have a night out while you're there?
