Lake Worth Beach is a decent community with some interesting characters, but there are a lot of issues with drugs and crime. While the crime and drug issue is nowhere near as astronomical as other South Florida urban areas, it is still prevalent and it seems almost impossible to stop it. Besides all of the halfway houses and crime, Lake Worth Beach is pretty adaptable to live in as there are always community festivities and awesome local businesses! Every year there is a street painting festival, a gay pride festival, reggae fest, and a lot of other fun community events. There are also wonderful online communities for the area where people can connect and help each other out. Everything is right where it needs to be, nothing is too spaced out or too close, it is all a walk or bike ride away.

I have been so used to living here for so many years that I don’t think this city requires any changes. It’s home to me. One thing that I admire about my neighbor is that many things are in walking distance so it is easy to commute if you don’t have a means a transport. For example, there are grocery stores in a 5-10 radius so not only are you able to shop for your household but you can have job opportunities also. Not only this but there are banks nearby and health care facilities such as nursing homes, walk-in clinics, chiropractors, and more!
Lake worth is very calm and pretty nice. You can find almost anything you are looking for near you. Lots of stores and restaurants not that far from each other. Super family friendly. Overall, I haven't had any problems here! I definitely wouldn't mind staying here.
