What to see in Gold Coast

Gold Coast Attractions

The main attractions of the Gold Coast are the glamorous hotels and resorts, beaches, and the upmarket shopping malls. There are also cultural and natural attractions for sightseers who manage to leave the beach. Scuba divers and snorkelers in the region would do well to pay a visit to the Biscayne National Park, while those wanting to meet some of the local wildlife will find a number of animal rehabilitation and conservation centres, including the Gumbo Limbo Environmental Complex in Boca Raton, and the Marine Life Center of Juno Beach. Those wanting a taste of the indigenous local culture should visit the Big Cyprus Seminole Reservation, west of Fort Lauderdale, where the American Indian heritage of Florida is showcased.
