Back in the 1920s, Florida property was hot. Palm Beach was one of the hottest spots around, but they weren’t welcoming to many of the Hollywood celebrities or other artists that were up and coming at this time. That’s where Delray Beach came into its own. An Artists and Writers Colony was created in the area in the 1920s that brought in a very bohemian crowd that helped to give the city the flair that it has today.
Atlantic Avenue is teeming with boutique shopping, restaurants, and entertainment options. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t plenty of places to enjoy nature around the town. In fact, along the boundary of the city is a portion of the Everglades with the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. This closeness offers plenty of places to get away from it all when you need to get out into nature.
