Take a memorable dog-man tour to one of the million-dollar communities in Miami-Dade County, offering waterfront luxury living at its finest! Golden Beach is a town like no other, and it's a pet-friendly destination to put on top of your list!
Covering approximately 1.8 square miles, Golden Beach is a quaint but affluent community bounded on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by the Intracoastal Waterway, on the south by the City of Sunny Isles Beach, and north by the City of Hallandale Beach.
It is among the oldest municipalities in the county, having been incorporated in 1929, almost 92 years ago.
With its convenience to fine dining, cultural centers, professional sports venues, and world-class shopping centers, most will agree that "Golden" is a name that best suits this waterfront neighborhood.
And to top it all off, it's got an array of parks in and around its perimeter that welcomes four-legged locals and visitors with open arms!
Here's a list of dog-friendly parks in and around Golden Beach.
