Overview of Delray Beach
Located just north of Boca Raton, Delray Beach is a hot tourist destination, but it's more than just pristine white sand beaches and a charming downtown. Those looking for Delray apartments for rent will understand how the combination of fun in the sun, arts and culture and various outdoor recreational activities earned this city the title of Most Fun Small Town in the United States in Rand McNally/USA Today's 2012 Best of the Road contest. Delray Beach was also named one of the nation's best places to live by Money Magazine.
Whether playing in the sand and surf along the southeast Atlantic shores of Delray Beach, exploring the shops and restaurants on Atlantic Avenue or admiring the historic architecture in the Pineapple Grove Arts District, there is always something to do in "Florida's Village by the Sea," which boasts a population of nearly 65,000 people.
Living in Delray Beach, FL
Delray Beach's history dates back well before 1845, when Florida became a state. Africans, Seminole Native Americans and Black Seminoles lived in the area alongside European settlers, and the population established a community that was incorporated as the Town of Delray Beach in 1923. In 1927, the Town of Delray Beach and the City of Delray were united, forming the current City of Delray Beach.
Because the area has long been inhabited, it boasts unique architecture that residents are encouraged to preserve and maintain in the historic districts. The city grew into what it is today largely because of the artists, writers and cartoonists who used to escape to the area during the cold winter months. The city maintains a distinctly artsy feel thanks to these residents' influence, and has a wide variety of options for cultural entertainment.
Delray Beach Work and Study
Although Delray Beach was once a winter resort town for northerners, it is transitioning into a year-round community, making it a great place to start a business. Within the 40-mile radius of Delray Beach is a 1.6 million-member labor force with jobs in hospitality and tourism, transportation and distribution, financial services, information technology and life sciences. The city was recognized as one of the nation's All-American Cities in 2001, largely because of the renewal and redevelopment that has occurred downtown.
There are 12 public schools in Delray Beach, as well as 10 private schools, offering families a range of education options for their children.

Delray Beach Attractions and Special Events
The two-mile beach that earned this city its name is probably the main attraction. Attracting 1 million visitors each year, Delray Beach has been named one of the Travel Channel's top 10 beaches in Florida.
However, it's not just the beach that made this city a popular tourist destination. The thriving downtown has a wide variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants and galleries, plus a variety of historic and cultural attractions. Old School Square, a cultural arts center and national historic site, was created after residents saved the 1913 Delray Elementary School and 1925 Delray High School buildings from demolition. The facilities have since been restored and adapted into a museum and theater, which serve as a community gathering place. Those looking for arts and culture can also explore the Arts Garage and the Pineapple Grove Arts District, located just off Atlantic Avenue downtown.
The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum will educate residents about the region's rich cultural history, and the Sandoway House Nature Center allows nature lovers to explore and learn about Florida's fragile ocean and freshwater environments.
