Delray Beach


 

delray beach florida real estate   Delray Beach is located just north of Boca Raton in Palm Beach County. Delray Beach has a "Miami meets Manhattan in the '60s" feel to it. Think in terms of Panama hats and locally-owned shops and restaurants, not the usual flip-flops, beach bunnies crowd, and chain restaurants you see in Miami Beach.

  Situated between Boca Raton and Palm Beach, Delray Beach has been immaculately preserved, giving the town a sense of historic charm. Between its long stretch of Atlantic coastline rich with lush vegetation, cypress, and palm trees, Delray Beach also boasts some of the most opulent homes on Florida's "Gold Coast." From historic Spanish stucco homes to pastel beachfront luxury condominiums and private estate enclaves, this is one Florida town that has all amenities of a lavish tropical lifestyle.

  The historic downtown district of Delray Beach hosts many charming shops, galleries, caf豬 and gourmet restaurants on picturesque Atlantic Avenue, anchored by the Old School Square Cultural Arts Center. Other Delray Beach attractions include:

  • Cornell Museum of Art & History
  • Crest Theater
  • The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
  • American Orchid Society

  According to one ex-Delray Beach resident, there is always something to do in Delray Beach. Festivals, fine arts and crafts shows, and shops featuring jewelry and fine clothing happen almost constantly.

  Every February, the The Delray Beach Garlic Fest strives to be the premier food and entertainment event in South Florida. Dedicated to exploring the numerous health and culinary possibilities of garlic, countless recipes and unique dishes have been created by professional chefs in the annual Garlic Chef cooking competition.

  In April, the Delray Affair, nicknamed the “Greatest Show under the Sun”, is the largest arts and crafts festival in the Southeast United States. The event takes place along the palm tree lined downtown streets of Delray Beach and stretches 12 city blocks from the Intracoastal to NW 2nd Avenue and two city parks.

  Delray Beach offers those looking to relocate to the warmth of Florida a wide array of homes and condos for sale, ranging from urban condos near the avenue, sprawling waterfront estates, bungalows, townhomes, high-rise condos and single-family homes plus several country club and 55+ active adult communities. Many Delray Beach homes are situated to take advantage of gorgeous scenery and close proximity to the ocean. With its pedestrian-friendly, brick-paved roads and walkways, a thriving downtown environment and a span of breathtaking beaches, this relaxed, yet cultural community has great appeal.
