There are loads of good shops, restaurants, pubs and bars to look at and to try. The boardwalk is wide enough but there is always a lot of traffic. I recommend starting at the beach end and walking all the way to the Art Gallery, have some lunch and then walk back on the other side.

Atlantic Avenue seems to have it all - shopping, bars, restaurants, even galleries. I was shocked at how crowded it was - but then it does lead to the beach, so tourists seeking a respite from the sun flock here.
We visited because on this street is a great needlepoint shop, ‘Stitches by the Sea,’ and I was looking for a belt canvas. There are a number of lovely canvasses there as well as yarns and flosses. The owners are very helpful, too.
Even though that was our ultimate destination it was fun to see the other shops along the street. Traffic at the noon hour was crowded - as was the sidewalk. During the evening hours this street gets even more popular I’m told. Would be a fun place to wander again.

This was a very busy Friday evening where many of the restaurants were at capacity and lots of people were walking around.

Street parking along Atlantic was reserved for valet parking only so the best options for self parking were on the side streets.

In another time I would have liked to hang out and people watch but decided to just quickly walk through.

Japanese, American, Mexican, Italian, etc were just a sample of cuisines available. Some of the bars patrons spilled out onto the sidewalk.

Small shops, parks and city hall rounded out the other sites to see or visit.

Just ok IMO.

Atlantic Ave is the place to be for Brunch Lunch Dinner and more. There are a plethora of great restaurants all along the ave. Most of them are good and some are really great. If you're stopping by in season make sure to get a res or be willing to wait 45 minutes plus at rush times from November to April. Parking is difficult but there are a couple of municipal garages that are affordable and they work with the park mobile app so that's a huge plus. I'd definitely say this is the place to be. Especially if you want some semblance of the bustle of the city but the laid back atmosphere of a small beach town.

A walk down Atlantic Ave. Delray Beach, can be a truly exciting Florida afternoon adventure. Starting at the "Famed" Tennis Courts (Pro Matches to live musical events ) West. to the ocean, East, and return will take you past many fine shops, bars, historic sites, parks, museums, art galleries and more. Just crossing the bridge over the intercoastal and surrounding green banks is delightful. Allow at least two hours for sightseeing, browsing plus time for lunch at cafes, dives or restaurants from plain to upscale. The contrasts from Old Florida to ultra modern architecture is remarkable. Take in the lobby of The Colony Hotel (old Florida) and the beautifully designed new Seagate just across the street and .several short blocks east and you will experience a lesson in history. By the way there are some excellent dining spots at the Seagate. Along the way choose modern restaurants of every variety or an Irish pub rebuilt to it's original specs. Joints to fine dining exist side by side along "Atlantic", You will see Fine Art galleries and tacky tee shirt shops, pizza parlors. ice cream and candy shops, tailored and trendy clothing boutiques, all in a three block stretch. Finally a beautiful beach and wonderful ocean views end the east bound walk; but this will be followed by an equally enjoyable return walk back to the Tennis Court area. All this at no cost other than metered or lot parking and shopping and food.

Nice to see this popular street still draws a crowd. However, we were extremely disappointed to see CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines being ignored at every turn. We saw crowed bars and restaurants, both indoor and outdoor seating, large gatherings of young and old people, unmasked and not distancing. All amidst the rapid resurgence of this pandemic. Disturbing to say the least.

Determined not to contribute to the festering pétri dish, we opted for outdoor activities (walking to the beach, visited nearby nature preserves and private airboat tour) and in-room dining via delivery service.

Charming street to wander up and down at leisure. A plethora of alfresco restaurants spilling onto the sidewalks, and lots of little boutiques with everything from a souvenir to a cocktail dress. Beautiful to roam on a cool evening! (Traffic is thick on this little two lane ave. This should really be a pedestrian street.)

Delray Beach is a great strolling Avenue! Lots to look at...something for everyone. Restaurants galore, art galleries, people watching. We gathered up lots of local flavor and bought a few treasures along the way. We dropped in at a local restaurant for lunch (Vic and Angelos).....continued walking and shopping. Great way to enjoy a day away from the beach.

Very busy street (we were there Fri and Sat so maybe less so during week?) with lots of shops and restaurants. A few places a bit down scale but all felt safe. Go off a block or so for fewer bit less expensive and touristy places. Quite a long street so took us two nights to see it all. Worth the time.
