Palm Beach

The city of Palm beach is beyond beautiful. Many of the shopping districts and suburb neighborhoods are ritzy and glitzy.  There is an abundance of upscale shops, elite boutiques, and fine dining restaurants situated along the renowned Worth Ave. The high-end European-style district, Worth Avenue, is one of Americas finest streets.

The neighborhoods in Palm Beach are quite special. They feature gorgeous, massive houses complete with immaculate, well-manicured lawns. There are a large amount of expensive and impressive vessels and yachts.

The Clock Tower is located on Ocean Blvd and Worth Ave. This beautiful and timeless landmark sits right alongside the stunning Palm Beach and Atlantic Ocean. You’ll likely want to photograph the Clock Tower because it is quite enchanting.

Palm Beach Municipal Beach is a gorgeous beach located on Ocean Blvd. They have massive rocks here which are set against the bluest of blue waters. They do have lifeguards on duty which is always a plus. I was able to find a lot of pretty seashells to add to my seashell collection from all the beaches I have gone to.

Palm Beach is aesthetically pleasing in all aspects. It is certainly one of the most beautiful beaches I have visited across Florida’s Atlantic Coast. The tropical landscapes are nothing short of stunning. The Palm Beach area in itself is really a magnificant sight.

West Palm Beach

West Palm Beach neighbors Palm Beach by connecting bridges. West Palm Beach is located on Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway. Surprisingly, there is no beach here. West Palm Beach is known for its bustling nightlife, live entertainment, and vibrant art districts. West Palm Beach offers several very popular areas.

Clematis Street is one of the most popular parts of the city known for its character and liveliness. Clematis Street features amazing outdoor art, colorful cafes, boutique shopping and so much more.

CityPlace is large outdoor shopping and entertainment center offering visitors the ease of an all-inclusive experience. CityPlace features a remarkable European architectural design which undoubtedly elevates the atmosphere. CityPlace features dining and shopping, trendy condos and apartments, and loads of entertainment.

Antique Row and Design District is a very charming and tasteful district known for its fine art and exclusive antiques. Antique Rowe features an abundance of vintage and retro art, home furnishings, and antique shops.

The Palm Beaches feature stunning resort-style beach towns, a multitude of daytime excursions and nighttime adventures, and miles of tranquil blue oceanfront waters.  The Palm Beaches are one of my favorite beautiful destinations to visit. All you have to do is just follow all of the palm trees lined up to find your way back.

 

And my bucket list dreams just keep coming true!

Delray Beach: Village by the Sea

Discover and Explore: South Florida’s Beaches

Florida’s Village By The Sea: Delray Beach

DSC_0533

South Florida, or SoFlo, is home to some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. South Florida offers picturesque landscapes encompassing bright blue glistening waters, soft powder-white sands and towering palm trees swaying in the wind.

I really love my little seaside village, Delray. Delray has one of the best beaches that South Florida has to offer. Delray will always hold a part of my heart as it was once home to me, so in essence, I will always hold it dear. When I lived here I enjoyed the simplicity and convenience of just being able to walk pretty much anywhere- including to grab lunch, coffee meet-ups or walks to the beach.

The parking to get to the beach can be a little challenging so just be on the lookout for an open meter. The number of people wasn’t overwhelming and we were able to easily claim our own little area to spread our beach gear out. They had a good mix of people at the beach including sweet couples, friends, and families.

There are some crustaceans, and shells so keep your eyes open for these beauties of the sea. Note, there was some seaweed that washed up on the shore, but that wasn’t a deal-breaker. The water temp was nice – just cool enough to be refreshing and just warm enough to be relaxing.

Downtown Delray

Atlantic Avenue is the go-to place for food and fun in Delray. The charming Atlantic Ave. is walking distance to the lovely Delray Beach which is widely known for its translucent turquoise waters and sugar soft sand. Atlantic Avenue has glorious preserved buildings and storefronts. The streetscape is certainly charming all lined up with these irresistible little sidewalk cafes and shops.

There is a multitude of boutique shops and restaurants which makes this a very popular area for locals and tourists alike. Downtown Delray is perfect for bites and sips. I appreciate that most days the area is not as cramped or overpopulated like some other areas in the SoFlo area.

I really love the views of Atlantic Avenue which stretches straight to the gorgeous Delray Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The location is superb because it’s walking distance to both downtown and the beach.

Delray is a true gem to south Floria. I will always love the little seaside village of Delray. And all I have to do is just follow all of the palm trees to find my way back.
