Map of Connecticut highlighting the Southwestern Region.

The Gold Coast is a region of the state of Connecticut, United States, roughly corresponding to the southern half of Fairfield County; it derives its regional nickname from Fairfield County being ranked as one of the wealthiest counties in the United States and being the headquarters to most of the hedge funds in the country. Much of its economy and population are dependent on the region's proximity to New York City. The Gold Coast is considered to be part of the New York metropolitan area and the Mid Atlantioc States.
