The Miami Marine Stadium has been through several incarnations over the past five decades, and the latest is the subject of a new exhibit at the Coral Gables Museum.

Concrete Paradise: Miami Marine Stadium, opening Oct. 17, traces the building’s distinctive history, from its early days as a speed boat racing venue to today as a giant, graffiti canvas and parkour playground.

For many years I both lived and worked in Coral Gables, and since my house was less than a mile from work, I decided to ditch my car and purchased a scooter. I conveniently biked, walked or scootered around town. I could get to the beach or the Grove by scooter, bike or public transportation.
