Overview


Progress took a unique route when it arrived in Coral Springs, Florida. Originally envisioned as an upscale version of the Old South, Coral Springs quickly became a showcase for all that was modern in the 1960s. Sold away in parcels at events such as the "Largest Land-Rush Discount Land Sale and Barbecue," the land that was to become Coral Springs was developed with the goal of making it "the premier city in Florida in which to live, work, and raise a family." As it grew from empty farmland to a thriving city with over 120,000 citizens in less than 40 years, the planners of Coral Springs were always preparing for the future: land for schools and parks was set aside before a road was paved, and deed and zoning restrictions governed the construction of every building. But there was always time for spontaneity-Coral Springs grilled its way into the Guinness Book of World Records by cooking the world's largest hamburger.
