Delray Beach is located in southeastern Palm Beach County on the Atlantic coast with direct access to both I-95 and the Florida Turnpike. Over the past decade, renewal and re-development efforts in Delray Beach have resulted in recognition as the All-America City in 1993 and 2001 and the city is hailed by planners from around the nation as a model for growth management. Delray is a casual city, with a downtown that is in the midst of a cultural re-birth, luring boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, bars, luxury hotels, and high-end mid-rise condominiums and apartments. A favorite for locals and tourists alike, pedestrian-friendly Delray Beach plays host to craft and jewelry shows, orchid exhibitions, the annual Garlic Festival, and numerous professional tennis events.
Buyers are drawn to Delray not only for the vibrant downtown, but also for the casual, outdoor lifestyle offered by the city’s parks and recreation system. East Delray offers a range of housing options, from contemporary apartments, condominiums and townhomes located downtown to luxury ocean front estates and historic “old Florida” single family homes and cottages. West Delray is home to numerous age restricted retirement communities, gated communities, and exclusive private country club communities. The recently opened and highly successful Delray Marketplace, which is located just west of the Florida Turnpike, provides a new mixed-use shopping center and entertainment complex catered towards the residents of western Palm Beach County.
