About Delray Beach

This area somewhat resembles its swanky neighbor directly to the south, Boca Raton, and is renowned locally for its ambitious gentrification centered on Atlantic Avenue, the main drag, better known as simply "The Avenue" with some of the best nightlife in South Florida. At the end of The Avenue is a large, free public beach. A funky and arty downtown beach area with terrific restaurants and shopping.
