Florida’s Gold Coast

Where do you want to go?



  Florida's Gold Coast spans the southeastern portion of the state from the vibrant city of Miami, to the diverse Fort Lauderdale. It is aptly named, considering it is particularly popular with wealthy Floridians and visitors alike, but has plenty to offer every kind of tourist.

  The Gold Coast is famous for its fine dining and boutique shopping. It is  well known as a place where celebrities come to shop, relax and even  purchase homes. Restaurants offer unique menus with an emphasis on  quality seafood and ethnic specialties. Stores feature one of a kind,  handcrafted items, upscale clothing and accessories. Each city has  something unique for visitors to enjoy, but both maintain a trendy and  positive atmosphere.

Ft. Lauderdale, Gold Coast Florida
  The city of Miami is a beautiful destination inspired by numerous  cultural influences. Its beaches are some of the most popular in the  world, but the city itself has a lot to tempt visitors from the sand.  The Gusman Center for the Performing Arts is a classic theater  showcasing drama, music and comedy, and plays host to the annual Miami  Film Festival. The design district highlights local designers, artists  and furniture makers, and is a wonderful place to take a stroll.

  While Fort Lauderdale also has incredible beaches, its true draw is its  diverse population and city life. While it has been known as a party  city for college students in the past, its image has changed  significantly. With numerous chic options for dining and entertainment,  families and business travelers alike will enjoy this upbeat city. The  Intercoastal Waterway is a must see, with intricate canals and dramatic  views.


  Great family vacations can be had in either city. The Miami Zoo is famous for its wide selection of animals and natural habitats. Warm weather makes  for excellent conditions to view many exotic species. The Museum of  Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale invites children to explore  different continents, go back in time or fly a simulated airplane.

  The beaches of the Gold Coast are clean, the water is typically warm, and  many different water activities are available. For the adventurous, jet  skiing, windsurfing or boating might be appealing. For those who enjoy a more leisurely pace, strolling down the beach and watching the people  go by can be just as pleasurable. Hotels along the Gold Coast are  plentiful, whether a downtown or beachfront location is desired.
