To identify which factors contribute towards where residents establish their homes is tricky. Finding consensus amongst even a few persons regarding this would be difficult, although some centers do appear to be attracting more interest. Delray Beach Florida is receiving more and more interest amongst prospective home owners.
Certain of these features will be psychological matters emanating from emotive factors and the way people feel. Yet equally valid are matters like the physical development of a city. This little city scores particularly well in this area.
Population growth from just under a thousand in 1910 to the present just over 64 000 has to indicate some true potential. There is history and culture here, involving Native Americans, hunters, trappers and runaway slaves that dates back to the eighteenth century. There is clearly a future too and following are some of the many reasons and attractions that prompt people to make their futures here.
With average temperatures ranging from the mid fifties in winter to a balmy 90 degrees in summer some people say this is reason enough to want to live here. Naturally such a delightful climate lends itself to the miles of public beaches and related water sports such as snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing and fishing. Sport is big here. Golf, tennis and many other sports flourish. An ATP World Tour 250 Series men’s tennis tournament is now an annual event.
Those preferring calmer waters may rather take to the extensive waterway network that runs throughout the area. Building has and still flourishes along the banks in these areas and some wonders of architecture can be found. The waterways also make it possible to travel into the city centre, a sort of water commute along the Intracoastal Waterway. The wide variance of property prices makes it possible for all budgets types to climb up the rungs of the property ladder at various life stages.
The town has a reputation for being fun and happy. Probably many places make similar claims but few can substantiate it. Both the Coastal Living, Rand McNally and USA today have published it amongst 2015 Happiest Seaside Towns in America and Most Fun Small Town respectively.
Development has not taken a back seat either. Medical, education and city management all maintain high standards. More than 50 individual education centers have been established and 7 health centers keep a watch over medical matters. Road and railways tie up easily to the major networks and neighboring city airport facilities provide more than adequate air travel links. The city is well managed yet not over regulated, offering high service level standards.
Of course no Florida town would be complete without an abundance of shops and malls and here residents will not be disappointed. Centers such as Delray Market and The Gardens Mall will provide intensive shopping experiences. A delightful alternative is downtown Atlantic Avenue with its mind boggling number of boutique, jewelry, antique outlets and galleries. Regular festivals, parades and live music provide highlights but for many just taking it easy amongst the bars and clubs is already a highlight.
Village by the sea is what many people call this deceptive haven. Experiencing the lifestyle and the friendly nature may well suggest this. High service levels and living standards suggest something more.
