Live Near The Beach
Looking to buy a home in one of Florida’s prime beach neighborhoods, but can’t decide which one? Well, we’re here to help!
This month we will be highlighting different beaches in the area, so that you can find the perfect beach neighborhood for you!
The first beach we will be highlighting is Delray Beach. Delray Beach is a city that is known for its unique architecture and bustling downtown. Delray Beach is the perfect place for you if you are an artist or simply have a creative soul.
Throughout the 20th century, Delray Beach went from being an agricultural community, to the home of many artists looking to spend their winters in a warmer climate perfecting their crafts. Cartoon artist such as Fontaine Fox and W.E. Pat Enright were among the artists who called Delray home.
This creative past has lead to great pride in Delray, as the city tries to preserve all of its beautiful and historic buildings. The Delray Beach Center for the Arts for example is in the middle of the downtown-shopping district. The Center was once the Delray Beach High School, and now is home to a museum, a theatre and an outdoor entertainment pavilion.
Things To Do In Delray
Across from the Shopping District is what has been dubbed the “artist district.” The street is lined with art galleries and decorated with sculptures made by local artists. There is also plenty of studio space available if you are looking to rent out a place to create your next great masterpiece.
Other amazing things to check out in Delray Beach are the Cornell Museum of Art & History, The Crest Theatre, The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. There is never a lack of things to do if you live in Delray and you enjoy the arts.
If you are thinking about moving to Delray Beach with your family, then you should be happy to know that the city has won awards for their education initiatives and is the only city in the region that employs an Education Coordinator to work with the school district to ensure that Delray Beach has top-notch school opportunities for local children.
There are both private and public school options that will provide your children with the best education they can get. www.PBCEdu.org gives you all of the information you need about the school system in Delray Beach.
It’s hard to figure out which beach community is perfect for you, but we hope that this gives you a little bit more insight into the city and community of Delray Beach.
