Chicago claims its them, Texas & the South claims its their title. Which do you consider the "3rd Coast"?

Wouldn't the East Coast of Florida be the Atlantic?

It would be the Gulf Coast...not the Texas to Florida EAST Coast. The Gulf Coast of Florida is its West Coast. Florida has both an East and West coast: affording it both sunrises and sunsets over sea.

Ive also heard of the Great Lakes area being called the north coast. This sounds better to me, and Texas to Florida is the gulf coast not the third coast. I guess Id say neither.

Definently the gulf coast. It's more of a coast by what i think of when i think coast. Plus 'coast' sounds strange to apply to a lake imo.

If you look at the outline of Michigan in the 5Lakes picture, what would you call it's coastline, then? A liquid border? Also, Wisconsin's entire eastern border is coastline (or whatever word you would choose). I guess some people from outside the area like to pretend these are just small, insignificant bodies of water. When you're on the shore of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee (yes, they have a shore), and you can't see across to the other side, the word "coast" doesn't seem strange at all.

Perhaps they meant the West Coast, referring to the Gulf region of Tampa and Pensacola.
