About Delray Beach
No ordinary beach town, Florida’s Delray Beach has a fascinating balance of sun, art, and culture. Book one of the many contemporary Delray Beach vacation rentals, and enjoy getting to know the charming Village by the Sea.
Delray Beach enjoys a tropical rainforest climate, so temperatures remain high year-round with distinct rainy seasons. Visit during the summer for temperatures in the 90s and plenty of dramatic summer thunderstorms. Plan your trip in the winter months for temperatures in the 70s and a much drier weather forecast. February tends to be the driest month, and the rainy hurricane season runs from June through November.
Like most communities on Florida’s Atlantic Coast, Delray Beach is a car-centric city. Most Delray Beach vacation rentals are just a short jaunt from the area’s best sights, but you’ll want to rent a car to explore. If you’re traveling from afar, fly into Palm Beach International Airport, about 20 miles north of Delray Beach, or fly into Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, which is about 30 miles south of the city, and rent a car there.
Things to Do
When you first arrive in Delray Beach, you’ll want to make the beach your top priority. Start with a visit to Delray Municipal Beach, which has received numerous awards over the years for its great swimming and its easy accessibility. Kick back under a beach umbrella, rent a cabana for the day, and swim under the watchful eye of the beach’s lifeguards. With several parking lots nearby, getting to the beach is a breeze.
In addition to the sun and sand, Delray Beach has long been a haven for artists and writers. Groups of creative types flocked to the area starting in the 1920s, decades before the area really started to grow. Catch a glimpse of Delray Beach’s artsy side with a stop at the Pineapple Grove Arts District. Right off of popular Atlantic Avenue, the arts district features a little something for everyone, with dozens of art galleries, boutiques, and cafés.
For a bit of history, the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum has a number of exhibits for tourists to enjoy. Many visitors also take the museum’s trolley ride, which offers a historic tour of Delray Beach. The Sandoway House Nature Center is another great attraction for family’s interested in guided historic tours, shark feedings and nature walks.
Hitting the links is a popular pastime in South Florida, and you can choose from a handful of great golf courses just a short drive away. Local favorite Delray Beach Golf Club has been open since 1926 and has a number of challenging holes with great views. If mini golf is more your style, take the kids to Putt’n Around, which has a sports bar, a botanical garden, and 36 holes of mini golf.
Food & Dining
Start your day on a delicious note with breakfast at Caffe Martier. This popular spot specializes in avocado mousse croissants, French toast, and mimosas. In the evening, make your way over to Dada, an upscale spot with great mojitos, crab cakes, and daily fish specials.
There are a wide variety of events that vacationers to Delray Beach can appreciate throughout the year. Visitors in January can go to the Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts. Artists display paintings, photography, and hand-crafted works for spectators to enjoy. Tennis fans may want to visit and attend the Delray Beach Open by the Venetian Las Vegas, which takes place in February, while foodies will enjoy the Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest the same month. From October to January, families can enjoy free Friday night concerts at The Pavilion.
Whether you’re seeking a quick weekend getaway or a weeklong beach vacation, Delray Beach is the ideal South Florida spot for families, couples, and friends. Choose from one of the many Delray Beach condos and stay awhile in this sunny destination.
