Golden Beach is minutes away from the excitement of Miami Beach, the region’s finest malls, and an array of cultural activity, offering a quiet, suburban type living along the ocean. Over the last decade, the demographics of the town have changed. The population has transitioned from the older retired snowbird that only spends six months a year in town to the family with young children who live in town all year long.
In the early 1920's, two brothers, R.W. and Henry G. Ralston invisioned a quiet community along the coast, devoted entirely to family life near enough to the large centers yet far enough away to insure the peace and quiet of suburban life. The Town of Golden Beach was incorporated under its present status, by a special act of the Legislature of the State of Florida in 1929. The act was approved and Golden Beach became a legalized community on May 23rd, 1929.
