The southern section of the east coast of Florida, USA, appears greyish tan in color due to the string of populated areas along the shoreline, including the cities of West Palm Beach, Boynton Beach, Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami (from north to south).

The brown and dark green lands west of the urban zone are part of  Big Cypress National Preserve and the Everglades National Park. The islands of the Florida Keys curve off to the southwest from the tip of the peninsula. Further north, important bodies of water include the sizeable Lake Okeechobee and Charlotte Harbor (west coast).
