Lower Atlantic Coast and Miami: Skilled Nursing Communities and Nursing Homes


View Community Listings

The Lower Atlantic Coast encompasses a three-county area of the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Florida. The metropolitan area covers the counties of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. The area is commonly referred to as simply "South Florida" and is roughly synonymous with the term Gold Coast.

Because the population of South Florida is largely confined to a strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Everglades, the Miami Urbanized Area (that is, the area of contiguous urban development) is about 110 miles long (north to south), but never more than twenty miles wide, and in some areas only five miles wide (east to west). South Florida is longer than any other urbanized area in the United States except for the New York metropolitan area.
