Named the Most Fun Small Town in the U.S.A. by Rand McNally, USA Today and the Travel Channel, Delray Beach offers the kind of culture and sophistication you wouldn't expect to find in a small, walkable beach town. You want a thriving arts community? There are more than 20 galleries and public art pieces in downtown Delray Beach and the Pineapple Grove Arts District. Throw in fashion and fine dining, shake it up in one laid-back package and soon you'll be imagining yourself in Delray.
