SOUTH FLORIDA VACATIONS
After witnessing just one sunrise, you'll know where the name comes from. Florida's Gold Coast, that stretch of vacation paradise encompassed by Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, seems particularly blessed by Mother Nature. From the pristine sands of the Palm Beaches…to the "Strip" in Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and South Beach, there are more than 60 miles of beautiful Atlantic shoreline to enjoy.
Recently, this area was awarded Florida's first designated Blue Wave Beach. This is the first national environmental beach certification program in America, and it places the beaches of greater Fort Lauderdale among the cleanest, safest and most user-friendly in the country.
Just a few miles inland is the unspoiled majesty of the Everglades. Miami, a center of international business and finance, is well known for its colorful art deco architecture, sophisticated shopping and trendy South Beach clubs. Is it any wonder that nearly nine million tourists from around the globe visit the Gold Coast each year?
