Delray Beach

Delray Beach, Florida is a seaside city located on the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean about halfway between Palm Beach and Boca Raton in Palm Beach CountyBoynton Beach lies directly to the north. 

In an attempt to honor the legacy of its agricultural past, Delray has become an active participant in South Florida's burgeoning historic preservation movement. Historic Old School Square in downtown Delray is evidence of this. The popular arts and shopping district stretching from Atlantic Avenue to the beach, with its shops, restaurants and hip cafes recently benefitted from a multi-million-dollar renovation and now anchors the Delray cultural scene. Across from Old School Square, the Pineapple Grove Art District offers art galleries, studios, theaters and museums, and an annual art festival brings creative crowds to the area. Once a jumble of small antiques shops and nondescript storefronts, Pineapple Grove is also home to cafes, restaurants, cool clothing boutiques, pilates and yoga studios and salons. You can easily find a home near all of these amenities: Upscale condominiums small homes, cottages, townhomes and condo buildings draw residents who love the lifestyle of being steps from the shops and a short walk to the beach. 

In the heart of suburban Delray, the Wakodahatchee Wetlands are home to over 140 species of birds and other wildlife, and in nearby Boynton Beach, Ocean Ridge Natural Area, part of a nature preserve along the Intracoastal Waterway, offers a rare opportunity to explore the natural environment from a tree-canopied boardwalk or a two-story observation platform.

Opportunities for dining, shopping, recreation and the arts are easy to find, but Delray is also home to one of South Florida's loveliest Atlantic Ocean beaches. Although Delray Beach is a friendly, outgoing community with a city-sized population and a small-town atmosphere, you're always within 30 minutes of two international airports and two seaports, and there's an Amtrak station right in town.
