Nestled in southeast Palm Beach County, Delray Beach offers the right combination of trendy urban condos, golf and country club living, waterfront luxury, and more! This desirable city, home to about 66,000 residents, is known for its stunning beaches, brick roads that welcome pedestrians, and culturally active downtown.
Delray Beach has a rich past that can still be seen in its historic buildings, like the 1876 Orange Grove House of Refuge, set in a lush citrus grove, settlers from the Bahamas and Japan in the early 1900s, and a colony that attracted artists, authors and cartoonists for years. The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, the only African American Cultural Heritage museum in Palm Beach Country, makes it easy to learn about the area's fascinating history. There's also the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, a center of Japanese history and culture, and the Sandoway Discovery Center, located in an historic 1930s home.
Today, Delray Beach is still a popular cultural destination. You'll find galleries, art events and festivals, and public art installations sprinkled throughout the thriving downtown and Pineapple Grove Districts. Here, the Artists Alley is home to working artists' studios and regular gallery walks. Then there's Atlantic Avenue; known simply as The Ave, this lively street — known as Florida's longest Main Street — draws residents and tourists alike with its fine dining, nightclubs, and shopping. In fact, the city was named the most fun small town in the U.S. by the Travel Channel. At Old School Square, you'll find the Cornell Art Museum, the Crest Theatre, the Fieldhouse Pavilion, and the Creative Arts School. Every weekend, you can shop for local produce and artisan products at the Green Market.
No matter where your interests lie, you'll find plenty to do in Delray Beach. With more than 10 golf courses within easy driving distance, you can try a new course whenever the mood strikes. For more outdoor adventure, head to one of Delray Beach's more-than 40 parks and beaches, including Delray Municipal Beach, named the top beach in the southeastern U.S. and home of the Delray Wreck, a 1903 shipwreck that provides amazing snorkeling and scuba opportunities. Sports fans will enjoy the Delray Beach Open, part of the ATP World Tour. Tennis is big in Delray Beach and the local Tennis Center hosts headline matches each year.
