“Charming small town with friendly locals”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Stayed in the town for just over 2 weeks over Xmas and New Year, found the town to be friendly with a good mix of restaurants and shops, it does not pretend to be a holiday resort but a small town that embraces visitors.
I read on one of the earlier posts that irpt was full of low lives and drugies and not to go south of downtown after dark, well most towns round the world has areas that you would not venture in to at night, as for low lives etc, it is the only place that I have been to that the "bikers" sit outside Starbucks drinking coffee and saying hello as you walk by, hardly a place to fear.
All in all a great small town with small town atmosphere that welcomes one and all.

“Great place for walking - people watching - shopping - eating and drinking”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

South Florida is all about places like downtown Lake Worth! Great places to shop, a nice variety of local and chain restaurants and plenty of watering holes. Lake Worth has very colorful clientele as residents. Go expecting to enjoy your time there.

“Real local feel”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

The downtown has some character and is not dominated with high rise condos and newer construction. Great restaurants and bars. Live music at the Bamboo Room and South Shores Tavern.

“Lake Worth Shops and Dining”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Downtown is a blend of high end art galleries, specialty boutiques, consignment shops and antiques stores. A fun place to kick around on an afternoon and have lunch at one of the welcoming sidewalk cafes.
