A neighborhood of Miami Beach, located on the western side of Indian Creek, the area of La Gorce consists of two islands, with the upper La Gorce Island and the lower La Gorce being popular for its golf course.

The Neighborhood

La Gorce is a neighborhood in Mid Beach of Miami Beach, and is located on the western side of Indian Creek. It is distinctly popular because of the large golf and country club located right in the middle of the larger island. These two islands are connected via La Gorce Drive, and these two are reachable via W 63rd Street from Millionaire’s Row, and via Pine Tree Drive if you are coming from South Beach.

The neighborhood of La Gorce is occupied mostly by the residents who own their homes, with only a very small percentage of the homes here being rented out to others, which is approximately only 3%. Some of the reasons why people choose to live here is because of the fact that the area is family friendly, quiet, clean, and safe. Some of the other reasons being cited for why people love living here include diversity, the beautiful architecture of the houses, its nearness to the water, and the fact that the neighborhood is well-maintained.

The median age of residents in La Gorce is 36, which is probably why a lot of them have families and choose to live in this safe enclave. Around 73% of the population in the lower island is married, while almost 90% of those on La Gorce Island have tied the knot. A high percentage of people living here are college educated, and most of those who are single on La Gorce are males.
