Florida Gold Coast

Florida Gold Coast is a region along the Atlantic coast of southern Florida in the United States of America. It consists of Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. Miami Beach has been one of America's pre-eminent beach resorts for almost a century. Miami is undergoing a massive building boom, and in 2008 its skyline ranked third in the U.S. behind New York City and Chicago. The Miami area has over 80 highrise towers under construction, such as the Biscayne Wall in Downtown Miami, and a row of skyscrapers being built along the west side of Biscayne Boulevard. In 2008, Miami had the five tallest skyscrapers in the state of Florida with the tallest being the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower.
Because it is sandwiched in by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Everglades to the west, the Florida Gold Coast is a lengthy 110 mi (180 km) north to south, but never more than 20 mi (32 km) east to west. Miami is 20 miles from Fort Lauderdale, 106 miles from Naples and 156 miles from Key West.
