Travel Spotlight: Downtown Delray Beach

DOWNTOWN-DELRAY-BEACH-ATLANTIC-OCEAN

Downtown Delray Beach: More Than Worth the Stay

Delray Beach is the perfect blend of lazy beach days and vibrant nightlife, with a dash of afternoon adventures on the side. Known as Florida’s “Village by the Sea”, this quaint city of 60,500 possesses an unparalleled magnetic quality that has attracted residents from around the world.

This is a lifestyle that sports Panama hats sold by individually and locally owned beachside shops, and where everything worth seeing is a charming walk away.

The Seaside Village With an Edge

While Florida boasts of several hip towns containing both urban centers and beaches, Delray Beach’s unique history and urban planning make this city stand far before the rest.

Florida experienced a huge land boom in the 1920s that set the stage for a massive influx of construction prospectors and homeowners hungry for a slice of Florida sun. This prompted undesirable suburban sprawl away from downtown amenities and the growth of view-blocking, oceanfront high-rises.

However, thanks to progressive thinking decades ago, Delray Beach never went down such a path. Mandates prevented the construction of aggressive high-rises and commerce was channeled to the famed Downtown Delray Beach Atlantic Avenue. This avenue sweeps from the beaches, across the Intracoastal Waterway, and pushes several blocks westward.

Lining its sidewalks is a living, breathing downtown, with an array of neighboring real estate. When it comes to selecting the most desirable properties, residents want to know where they can live near the water, while still be able to walk to Atlantic Avenue. After all, this defines a walker’s paradise town.

The variety of desirable walkable properties is staggering. Intracoastal condominiums and townhomes are tucked on either side of this water-thruway, and the beach itself is lined with multi-million dollar waterfront estates featuring Mediterranean Revival mansions neighboring classic 1950s beach bungalows. Many townhomes can be found above and adjacent to the classic restaurants and hip boutiques that line and surround Atlantic Avenue.

Today, Delray Beach is a decisive buyer’s market, with a steady inflow of affluent and mobile young professionals eager to cash in on the hot housing market and the booming South Florida economy.

Not Your Average American Beach Town

delray-beach-most-fun-small-town-badgeThe perfect blend of a booming economy and attractive amenities make the city an all-around “powerhouse” of American destinations. Delray Beach was named one of America’s best small towns by USA Today, claiming the title of “Most Fun”.

Residents and visitors can begin the day combing the shore for sea turtles beforesnorkeling around some of the East Coast’s most visible waters. In the afternoon, grab a bite at one of the city’s over one hundred premier restaurants and an evening martini at a funky local’s bar.

Here are some of our favorite Downtown Delray Beach places and activities:

  • Arts Garage: located at Atlantic and 1st Street. Called “a cultural powerhouse” by the Sun Sentinel and voted one of the top ten destinations by Palm Beach Cultural Council, Arts Garage is a fantastic multi-disciplinary entertainment hub. Enjoy an array of musicians, performers, film presenters, visual artists, and arts educators in a revolving events calendar that includes both local, national, and international talent.

  • Annual Tastemakers of Delray Beach: Delray Beach boasts over a hundred quality restaurants. Lining Atlantic Avenue and surrounding Downtown Delray Beach streets is a verifiable melting pot of international fare. The discerning foodie can choose from Asian, Cuban, Italian, Jamaican, or even the classic New York pizza, among many other tasty options. At the Annual Tastemakers of Delray Beach, the hungry patron can experience a collection of culinary delights in a two-night celebration of food, wine, and cocktails. This annual event features a set-price passport in which attendees can visit a multitude of participating restaurants to experience the best Delray Beach has to offer.

  • Delray GreenMarket in the Park: located at Old School Square Park at Atlantic Avenue and NE 2nd Avenue. Delray Beach has built its reputation on consistently offering something for everyone. This includes a weekly, family-friendly open-air marketplace featuring some of the best vendors throughout South Florida. GreenMarket has been a neighborhood staple since 1996, and remains an engaging community hub for thousands of Delray Beach residents. This Saturday morning destination offers everything from off-the-vine produce, fragrant baked goods, fresh cut flowers, unique artisan crafts, and so much more. A weekend visit to Downtown Delray Beach is not complete without a stop here!

There’s So Much More to Discover in Delray

Delray Beach is famed for its award-winning beaches, bustling downtown district, rich cultural heritage, and vibrant nightlife. Regardless of the time of year it is, or the block you wander down, this Village by the Sea has something for everyone.
