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, and Miami has undergone a massive building boom.
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.
The Gold Coast is considered the area between Palm Beach and Miami so any airports and bus stops between these cities can be used for entrance.
The area is served both by a new higher speed line (the private Brightline) and a slower commuter rail line with more stops (Tri-Rail). Some destinations are more convenient by different lines; for example, the Brightline serves Miami's downtown areas better while Tri-Rail is better to go to Miami International Airport as well as smaller communities.
