Delray Beach: All About the Avenue

The arts are never more than a few steps away in Delray Beach, where Atlantic Avenue is a focal point for shopping, dining and festivals that attract people downtown throughout the year. Old School Square preserves the city’s heritage in its three historic buildings while offering a rich variety of concerts, exhibitions, plays and entertainment for all ages. The cultural scene bustles with life in the Pineapple Grove Arts District, while the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum helps to tell the story of this community’s rich and diverse history.

Palm Beach County’s diverse resort town
Delray Beach, in the south part of the county, has the best of both worlds: nearly 2 miles of clean, gorgeous beach, and lots of activities to keep you busy if you prefer to explore outside of the water. Whichever you choose, Delray Beach is a hot vacation destination.

History, culture and more…
You’ll never run out of things to do and see in Delray Beach. This city has five historic districts, breathtaking gardens at the Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens, and a great theater, museum and entertainment complex at Old School Square. Check out the links to the cultural venues, below. And of course, Atlantic Avenue is always abuzz, with lots of restaurants, shops and festivals.
