Delray Beach is a first-class resort destination with a diverse, vibrant, community situated on the Atlantic Ocean between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach.  A small and intimate town with big city sophistication, Delray Beach is about 30-45 minute drive from Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale International Airports, and only an hour north of Miami.  A three-time winner of the coveted All-American City award (1993, 2001 and 2017), Delray Beach celebrates its art, culture and history.

Delray’s Atlantic Avenue, is the longest Main Street in Florida.  A popular destination for locals and visitors alike, Atlantic Avenue is a charming streetscape filled with upscale shops, fine restaurants and nightly entertainment.  The downtown is known, nationally, for its family-friendly festivals such as the Delray Affair and Delray Beach Garlic Fest and for its famous 100-foot Christmas Tree, where visitors can walk inside to see animated displays. Come for the Tree lighting and see Santa arrive via helicopter! 

Delray Beach’s booming art scene is an experience for the eyes and the soul!  More than 20 galleries and public art pieces are located downtown and in the Pineapple Grove Arts District, home to Artists Alley, where you will find working artists in their studios.  Gallery Walks draw visitors on Friday nights from October to April. Delray Beach’s signature event, On The Ave, held five times a year, always features food, music, and an outdoor art gallery. 

 

Boca Raton

Boca Raton is a highly desirable address for so many reasons! The city's impeccable landscaping, top-notch schools, cleanliness, safety, amenities, architecture and overall quality of life makes it a great place to live, raise a family, retire and/or invest. 

There is so much to do and see in Boca Raton. With 46 parks, two libraries, three public beaches, two golf courses, several tennis centers, miles of bicycle and pedestrian trails  an outdoor amphitheater and special community events all year long, there's no time to be bored in Boca.  Arts and culture? We've got that. Professional and college sports? We've got that too.

First settled in 1895, Boca Raton soon became a small agricultural community, continuing to produce winter vegetable crops through the 1940s. During the land boom of the 1920s, architect Addison Mizner initiated the tourism industry when he began work on the exclusive hotel that is today’s Boca Raton Resort & Club. Boca Raton still proudly reflects Mizner’s Spanish-Moorish building style. Incorporated as a municipality in 1925, Boca Raton’s original Town Hall is an historic focal point for the city. In 1967, IBM located in Boca Raton, ushering an era of economic and business development that continues today.
