For everyone who comes to Florida, a lot of things appear so different, but are they? To a certain degree, it is different. However, Florida is a sub-tropical environment and therefore it does indeed look something special.
What does it stand for?
It stands for white sandy beaches, scenic nature parks, and tranquil waterways. If you enjoy boating, golfing, sailing, fishing, snorkeling, sunbathing and the arts and entertainment, you will love it here. But before you saddle the horses to go on house hunt you need to understand that the three counties of the Tri-County area are quite a bit different. Therefore, it is always good to get acquainted with the area.
What is Florida’s Cultural Coast?
East Coast, Atlantic Coast, West Coast and Gulf Coast – those are the easy ones. You do not even need a map to figure that out which one is what, but what about all the other coasts that we refer to in Florida?
Here comes a little overview:
The “First Coast” runs from Georgia to Ormond Beach. Because of St Augustine, which was founded in 1565 as the nation’s “First City,” this stretch of coast along the Atlantic Ocean is called “First Coast.” The “Palm Coast,” which refers to a city in Flagler County, is a part of this coastline.
The “Treasure Coast” begins at Fort Pierce and ends with Boca Raton. The famous Palm Beach is part of the Treasure Coast. Quite a few Spanish galleons did not make it home, and their treasures are still buried in the sand. The Atlantic Ocean does not release those treasures voluntarily, but once in a while, lucky divers can dig some gold up.
“Gold Coast,” which is the coastline from Palm Beach through Miami, refers to the property investments made by some of the wealthiest people on earth. Some of those mansions seem to consist of solid gold.
Florida’s West Coast
The Gulf of Mexico also has a few unique coasts. The “Forgotten Coast” includes Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, Mexico Beach, Gulf County, Apalachicola and St. George Island. Yeah, it seems to be a little far out and remote, however, “forgotten” is a little far stretched, but it is what it is.
The “Sun Coast” includes the coastline along St. Petersburg and Clearwater, and stretches all the way down to Fort Myers. The keys, which are referred to as “Florida’s Beach,” are also included.
You have probably heard the term “Cultural Coast” as well. It refers to the Manasota/Sarasota County area with Sarasota as the Cultural Capital. Charlotte County belongs, at least partially, to the cultural coast as well. Once you know what is going on in Sarasota, you will probably agree to the name. There is a lot of culture and art “going on” in Sarasota and that is one of the reasons why everybody likes the area so much. The barrier islands of Anna Maria Island, Siesta Key and Lido Key are also part of this coastline. The “Cultural Coast” is overlapping with the “Sun Coast.”
“Lee Island Coast” is the coastline of Lee County. At least that is an easy one.
