The term "Gold Coast" denotes the shoreline that once ran along this neighborhood’s southern edge before South Shore was developed. The Gold Coast’s first homes were built by wealthy out-of-t owners who sought second homes near the beach. These magnificent turn-of-the-century Victorian and Edwardian homes line enchanting tree-lined streets, including Grand Street, San Antonio Avenue, Dayton Avenue, Bay Street, St. Charles and Paru Street, to name a few. Nestled amongst these historic gems are spectacular Mediterranean and Arts and Crafts homes, often built to a generous scale. Located in the heart of the Gold Coast and set amongst an abundance of mature trees and lawn area is Franklin Park, which offers a playground, baseball field, basketball and tennis courts, swimming pool and recreation center.
