Delray Beach comes under Palm Beach County, Florida. The ideal location on the Sunshine State’s Atlantic Coast less than an hour from Miami makes this “village by the sea” a perfect beach holiday destination. Delray Beach’s main draw is the two miles of beachfront sand which attracts a million visitors every year. The gas lamps and brick sidewalks of Atlantic Avenue, with all the cosy bistros, art galleries and outdoor cafes, add to the getaway holiday vibe. Get a car for hire in Delray Beach to see the attractions and beaches in Palm Beach County. If you have time, it could also come in handy for day trips to Fort Lauderdale, Miami and other tourist hotspots within easy reach.
The beaches are the main draw, but it would be a mistake to overlook the other attractions. You can start with the Old School Square at the corner of Swinton and Atlantic Avenues, where you will find the Cornell Museum of Art and American Culture. Get a car for rent in Delray Beach and continue on to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. Drive down to the Marina Delray and drop in at Sandoway House Nature Center.
The Delray Municipal Beach and Atlantic Dunes Park, both public beaches, add up to two miles of beachfront sand. The Atlantic Dunes Park can be found at 1605 South Ocean Boulevard. Delray Municipal Beach has five beach parks with parking areas, apart from parallel parking all along Ocean Blvd. Anchor Park at 340 South Ocean Boulevard offers not just parking space, but also restrooms, showers, a playground, picnic tables, and barbecue grills. You will find similar beach parks in every community along the coast. Boca Raton has two miles of beaches with access and facilities provided through Spanish River Park, Red Reef Park, and South Beach Park. On the other side in Boynton Beach, you have Boynton Beach Municipal Park, Ocean Inlet Park, and Gulfstream Park.
The Delray Beach Marriott has arguably the most perfect location for a beach holiday stay in Florida. But it is decidedly upscale, same as the Seagate Hotel and Spa. If budget considerations force you to look elsewhere, consider the Hyatt Place Delray Beach, Wright by the Sea, and the Colony Hotel and Cabana Club.
If you have time to kill, start by visiting other Palm Beach County destinations such as Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, and the aforementioned cities of Boca Raton and Boynton Beach. But the real adventure would be a day trip to Miami. Book your car rental in Delray Beach right now and plan for the short drive from Boca Raton to Fort Lauderdale, with the fleshpots and famed tourist attractions of Miami Beach just a short drive ahead.
