Tom.. did you stay at Margarittaville? The building looks like it.

Thanks for proving my point, by the way.. most of the world think only Miami when they hear Florida. They don't realize the left side of Miami (the Gulf of Mexico side) is actually much, much, more beautiful than the Atlantic side.

It was the Sandestin Hilton Resort. Too bad I was there for work and not pleasure.

I can't speak for the Gold Coast, but perhaps I can give a little description of Miami. The beaches and water are gorgeous, white sand, clear blue/green water that you can see the bottom if you are in the water up to your mid-chest / shoulders. There is a great party vibe / energy about miami. However, the beaches are actually Miami Beach, which is slightly seperated from the city of Miami. While Miami beach is great (beaches, high rise condos, people all around) the city of Miami is not exactly world class. It is not like a Barcelona, where the city overtakes the beach. There is not much special about the city of Miami, but I would say the beaches are world class.
