A few years ago, Delray truly aspired to be the "village by the sea" that it's motto spoke of. In reality, Delray has degraded quite a bit over the past decade. Atlantic Avenue still has some great restaurants but has now become an extremely crowded unpleasant Fri-Sun location due to the crowds, high prices, with the preponderance of restaurants being...

We've been living in Delray for about a year now and of course, needed to go to as many places on Atlantic Ave that we could to see what they offered. We found some of the best Happy Hour's, with well priced food and drink. Some of the most wonderful restaurants we have ever eaten. There is music coming from... More

Delray's Atlantic Avenue is a happening place, with fabulous restaurants, over the top shops and a terrific walking ambience. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to park, and traffic during the season is enough to drive us year-round residents crazy. Also, the Chamber of Commerce is very active, sponsoring street festivals (read closings) almost once a month. If this activity appeals to... More

Restaurants, shops, Nightlife, all within a few blocks. Award winning places for any taste & budget. Great pizza @ Pizza Rustica, open 24/7 (deep dish) or a few locks away is Anthony's Coal Fired for the thin crust. Stop by The Blue Anchor (Brittish Pub) for live music & great beer.

Wonderful City, clean and safe downtown main street. So many restaurants to choose from, all cuisines. Wonderful shopping, many local stores not to be found in other locations. Good for families and singles.

"The Ave" is the place to be in the city voted Most Fun Small Town in America and one of five Best Small Towns in Florida. Great local restaurants and bars as well as quaint upscale shopping make strolling The Ave one of the most popular things to do in South Florida.

If you are anywhere near Delray, i.e. Palm Beach, Boynton Beach, Pompano Beach, you should add a visit to Delray Beach to your agenda. Atlantic Avenue is the place to go, but there are other shops off a side street (Chico's is there, among others), and thankfully, virtually all of them are locally owned. You won't find a chain store... More

This is the only place you can pay to park and still get towed. There are private lots that are open sometimes yet not other times. It seems the police are in on this scam and didn't care that I still had to pay over $100 on top of paying the $10 to whoever collected and helped us park to... More
