Over the last few decades Delray Beach has grown to be one of the “hottest” destinations in the country. Our award-winning city-twice named an All-America City was recently named Most Fun Small Town in America by the Travel Channel, Rand McNally and USA Today as well as one of the Happiest Seaside Towns by Coastal Magazine. We at the Howell Realty Group couldn’t agree more! We have a lot of fun here!
In Delray, there are a host of recreational activities to choose from. Of course, one of our main attractions is our beaches! Beach-goers have access to two miles of public beach-front for sunbathing, recreational events, swimming and other activities. Collectively, one of the two miles of beach is lifeguard supervised daily.
Delray boasts public parks including Miller Park where baseball diamonds, soccer fields and other sports are offered; Pompey Park with its $1 million pool and Veteran's Park that overlooks the scenic Intracoastal Waterway. Bicycle rentals are conveniently located at Richwagen's Cycle Center on Atlantic Avenue. For further information on outdoor activities, go to Parks and Recreation.
