Delray Beach

Located in southern Palm Beach County, directly on the Atlantic Ocean, Delray Beach.

Welcome to Delray Beach

Located in Southern Palm Beach County, directly on the Atlantic Ocean, Delray Beach encompasses 15.37 square miles of land area and has over 60,000 residents.
 
Delray Beach, the little village by the sea that once was home to pineapple fields and a coastal jungle, has transformed into one of South Florida’s most vibrant communities.
 
Delray Beach is characterized by a wonderful mix of oceanfront homes, and the panache of charming downtown’s Atlantic Avenue – a picturesque scene of quaint shops, galleries, and casual-to-chic restaurants. Art and jazz nights attract many to the streets. Beautiful residential communities are tucked away along Delray’s Intracoastal waterway. Delray has become quite the food scene with outstanding and varied restaurants.
 
 
Delray Beach is “hot and vibrant” and offers residents a full range of amenities and the incomparable beauty of nearly two miles of pristine white beach. It has been named an All-American City twice in the past decade though most think of Delray Beach as a resort-style, laid-back beach community with panache.
 
Delray Beach has emerged as a leading figure in Florida’s growing historic preservation movement. The city has designated several neighborhoods as historic districts places where residents are encouraged to preserve old homes as a living link to Delray’s illustrious past.
 
But a growing number of neighborhoods also speak to the emergence of Delray Beach as home to some of South Florida’s grandest estates. A number of magnificent mansions are located along the southern part of the town’s two-mile stretch of oceanfront, and other premier properties overlook the Intracoastal Waterway.

On the western side of town, private gated communities like Stone Creek Ranch, and Mizner Country Club are being built.
 
Only minutes away from Delray Beach is the Boca Raton Airport, a base of operations for more private jets than any similar facility elsewhere in the country. Palm Beach International Airport and Fort Lauderdale International Airport are just 30 minutes away and offer the best options for those seeking commercial flights to virtually any city in the United States.
 
Delray Beach today is known for its “Bahamas style” architecture and exuberant downtown. Taking a stroll down Atlantic Avenue you will see the upscale restaurants and boutiques, all part of a great economic development plan. Efforts have been underfoot in recent years to bring attention to Delray’s cultural and historical heritage. In Delray, you have some great visitor sites that bring proper attention to the city’s history and cultural richness:
