Delray Beach is a first-class resort destination and 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 30-45 minutes from Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale International Airports, and only an hour north of Miami. A two-time winner of the coveted All-America City award (1993 and 2001), Delray Beach celebrates its art, culture and history.
On July 25th, 2012, Delray Beach was named Most Fun Small Town in the USA by Rand McNally, USA Today and the Travel Channel on a nationally televised special, Best of the Road. There are plenty of reasons that Delray Beach won this award! Delray’s Atlantic Avenue, which runs through the center of town from I-95 to the ocean, 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.
