Delray Beach is a Palm Beach County city that belongs to the Miami Metropolitan Area. This coastal city boasts of wonderful views not only of the Atlantic Ocean, but also of the many golf courses within its city limits, making it one of the most sought after real estate neighborhoods of Florida.

The Neighborhood

Also known as simply Delray, the community of is bounded by the neigborhoods of Boynton Beach to the north, King’s Point to the west, Boca Raton to the south and the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Due to its direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, Delray Beach residents refer to their community as the “Village by the Sea.”

The city has its first construction of the Orange Grove House of Refuge in 1876 but it was only in 1884 the Delray Beach saw its first settlers, which were African-Americans who were from the Panhandle of Florida. These early settlers bought the House of Refuge and started farming. Due to the growing demand, the community had its first school by 1894.

With the construction of Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railroad, many of the settlers of the area became successful farmers.

The area was then incorporated as a town in 1911. By 1920, the community benefited from the Florida land boom. Delray Beach became a primary community of interest for tourists and real estate buyers.

By 1960, Delray Beach is slowly making waves in the surfing arena. Atlantic Avenue became the largest surfboard seller in all of Florida.

Like South Beach’s Art Deco architecture, Delray Beach also has its rich history, with the community revitalizing many of its historical landmarks including the Old School Square and Colony Hotel. To date, the city has established five Historic Districts included in the Local Register of Historic Places.

In 2012, Delray Beach was named as America’s Most Fun Small Town by Rand McNally’s “Best of the Road.” Three years later, Coastal Living voted the city as the 3rd Happiest Seaside Town in America.

On the eastern area of Delray Beach is Downtown Delray where many businesses are flourishing. It has undergone several significant redevelopments and transformations in recent years.

This quaint community has its own Fire and Rescue Department that respond to rescue calls, fire and medical emergencies within the city limits and also within the nearby Highland Beach and Gulf Stream neighborhoods.

Things To Do

To relive the history of Delray Beach, head out to the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum that houses several black archives. It used to serve as the abode of Principal Solomon D. Spady. The museum underwent major renovations expanding it to include the 1935 Cottage to become the Kid’s Cultural Clubhouse and the C. Spencer Pompey Amphitheatre that seats 50 persons.

Another must visit in Delray is the Delray Beach Swim and Tennis Center, which served as host to many tennis tournaments such as the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships, April 2004 and 2005 Davis Cup and the Chris Evert/Bank of America Pro Celebrity.

Avid golfers would also enjoy practicing their swings at the Delray Beach Golf Club and Delaire Golf Club. Bordering the community to the north is the Country Club of Florida, while to the south is the Bocaire Country Club.

This beautiful South Florida gem is also home to a number of upscale shops, casual and fine dining restaurants, awesome nightlife and two-miles of pristine beaches.
