I have just moved to Delray Beach, FL the beginning of January 2018. So far I love it here! Its crazy to think that tourist come here to visit, but yet i live here. I am literally just 1 mile away from the beach and its so beautiful. The water is blue and clear with white sand surrounding it. Not only is the beach beautiful, but there are also nice shops and restaurants right on the beach. I mean how perfect is that? You can just walk to beach from the shops. There is also beautiful little ducks walking everywhere, literally, and you can tell they love it here too. You can never go wrong with living here, its like a dream come true!

Downtown Delray Beach is surrounded by beautiful beaches and the most elegant restaurants South Florida Has to offer. The crystal clear Atlantic is within walking distance from from Downtown Delray. Some of the highly rated restaurants include Dada's, Cabana El Ray, and Park Tavern. There are also many attractions and locations to visit on Atlantic Ave including The Silverball museum, Sandaway Discovery Center, and the Old School Square. There are many family friendly events held in Delray Beach including the weekly Green Market and the annual Delray affair that is one of the largest arts and crafts events in the Southeastern US.
Delray beach is a small town that offers a variety of things to do. From our beautiful downtown to our beaches, it is a wonderful town to raise a family. Winter time is my favorite time of the year around Delray Beach because the town is more beautiful, all down Atlantic avenue the colorful Christmas lights add character to the town and don't forget the massive beautiful Christmas tree that many visit yearly. One don't have to travel far to do family activities and get an amazing nightlife.
