A glossy lifestyle magazine launched by a daily newspaper? City & Shore was a novel concept when it debuted 20 years ago this month.
In his introductory column, editor Mark Gauert summed up the magazine’s founding principle in eight words: “South Florida is a great place to live.” And its raison d’etre was printed on the cover: “Savoring the good life in South Florida.” City & Shore now has continued to do that with award-winning panache over two decades — in good times and bad.
And the times were good — and so different — when our debut issue dropped hand-in-hand with the new millennium. So, for a bit of perspective as we mark this milestone with you, the readers who’ve accompanied us, we offer a day trip back to 2001. And as our guide, let’s borrow from some of the stories that savored the good life in South Florida during our premiere year.
Join us in a look back on the past 20 years of life in South Florida – the people, the places, the parties – featured in the pages of City & Shore. And yes, there will be a quiz – with prizes! Look for it this weekend in popular print, online and digital formats.
