Delray Beach

by Nadine Fite 02/16/2023

Delray Beach: 'The most fun small town in America.'

Famous for its tropical beauty and miles of superb shorefront, Delray Beach is a sun worshiper’s paradise. Skirting the Atlantic Ocean, the city offers a wealth of cultural and natural attractions. Delray Beach is a historic city, cordially combining the resort-style architecture of Henry Flagler’s Gilded Age with a new, hip art-deco appeal to create a city threaded with cachet, glamour, charm, and elegance.

Delray Beach is nestled between Boca Raton and Boynton Beach on the Atlantic coast of South Florida. The weather is consistently tropical, perfect for sandals and a bathing suit. The city of Delray is located on what used to be a large pineapple plantation, and to this day still retains much of that old-world agricultural charm that defined coastal South Florida in the early-20th century.

Delray Public Beach and Atlantic Dunes Park offer boardwalks, seaside walking paths, and lifeguard-protected beaches, perfect for soaking up the sun and taking a dip in the ocean. Delray Beach hosts a number of seasonal events each year, such as the Delray Affair, one of the largest arts and crafts celebrations in the southeast United States. Other popular events include the Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival, Delray Beach Open professional tennis tournament, and Holiday Boat Parade. So, come to Delray Beach and experience the best of Florida's sun, sand, and surf!

Strolling the Avenue

The sky opens up over the cultural hub of Atlantic Avenue, casting a brilliant South Florida sunshine over this seaside Eden. Along Atlantic Avenue you can enjoy a world-class dining experience at one of the city’s many high-end restaurants, visit the charming local boutiques and beach shops, or enjoy an afternoon stroll around the cultural arts center of Old School Square. You can sip cocktails and bump shoulders with South Florida’s most prestigious and affluent at the historic Colony Hotel, a veritable Spanish castle that towers majestically over the busy avenue, or at any other of East Delray’s many luxurious nightspots.

Tennis anyone?

The Delray Beach Tennis Center has hosted both the Federation Cup and the Davis Cup international competitions. East Delray Beach is also home to a number of private country clubs and beautiful golf courses, ensuring you the privacy and premier services that come with resort-style recreation.

Whether you prefer an evening gown and heels or a bathing suit and sandals, Atlantic Avenue has something to offer for everyone. The cool sea breeze floats through the air at all hours of the day, constantly reminding residents that East Delray is a premier seaside community and that the relaxing retreat of Delray Beach is always just a few steps away.

A Mix of Old and New

Delray Beach has some of the most prestigious private and parochial schools, including American Heritage – the city’s awarding winning college preparatory school for grades pre-K through 12. The Delray Medical Center offers comprehensive medical care, and has also been voted “One of America’s 50 Best Hospitals.” East Delray Beach is also just a short trip from the West Palm Beach International Airport.
