Doral

Trip Planner USA  /  Florida  /  Doral
Doral is a city located in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. Situated just northwest of Miami International Airport, the City takes its name from the Doral Golf Resort & Spa located within its municipal boundaries. As of 2013 the U.S. Census Bureau estimated Doral's population at 50,213.For a city of its size, Doral has a large number of shops, financial institutions and businesses, especially importers and exporters, primarily because of its proximity to the airport. In 2008, Fortune Small Business and CNN Money ranked Doral as 51 on a list of 100 cities with the best mix of business advantages and lifestyle appeal.Originally built by Doris and Alfred Kaskel, who coined "Doral" by combining their names, the city is nicknamed Doralzuela due to the city's large and affluent Venezuelan community.HistoryIn the late 1950s, real estate pioneers Alfred and Doris Kaskel purchased 2,400 acres of swampland between Northwest 36 Street and Northwest 74 Street and from Northwest 79 Avenue to Northwest 117 Avenue for about $49,000, intending to build a golf course and hotel. In 1962, the Doral Country Club opened in western Dade County, featuring the blue, red and par-3 golf courses, along with a hotel on Miami Beach. The "Doral" name combined Doris and Alfred. As Doral's very first structure, the Doral Hotel and Country Club became the area's hot spot: guests were transported from the beach to the country club for a day on the golf course.
