On 25 July 2012 Delray Beach was named the Most Fun Small Town in the United States by Rand McNally, USA Today and the Travel Channel. Located between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, Delray Beach promises British holidaymakers the intimacy of a small town with the sophistication of high-flying USA destinations.
For a small town, Delray Beach has a lot to offer visitors. Britons journeying to the town benefit from an award-winning beach and several historical and cultural sites including theatres and museums. Sports fanatics can try out water sports in the tropical waters as well as superb golf and tennis. Visitors can also catch site of Delray's impressive Atlantic Avenue, which is the longest Main Street in Florida. The avenue cuts through the centre of town, leading spectacularly to the ocean and offers something for those with a taste for the finer things in life; swish retail outlets, first-rate restaurants and nightlife hotspots can all be found.
For art fans there is an array of sites to stun the eyes; the downtown area and Pineapple Grove Arts District boasts a choice of over 20 galleries and visitors can even view the artists at work in their studios. Moreover, holidaymakers visiting from October to April can take part in Gallery Walks on a Friday night. Beyond the town, take a trip 20 minutes westbound and explore nature reserves, equestrian facilities and Florida-s Everglades.
Travellers on a high-budget cannot go wrong with the choice of luxury hotels. For example, Sundy House Restaurant and Inn offers guests the chance to take a plunge with the fish in the Cenote Pool or dine in the stunning gardens inhabited by parrots. Another choice is Historic Hartman House, which is Delray Beach's first Bed and Breakfast and promises a tranquil break and homemade breakfast every morning.
Britons can reach Delray Beach by flying to Palm Beach or Fort Lauderdale airports, which are a 30-45 minute ride away. Those who have already booked to travel to Miami and who are attracted to a swish lifestyle on an exclusive scale need only travel an hour up the coast to reach Delray Beach and experience what the 'fun small town' has to offer.
