Situated north of Broward County, the sprawling region of Palm Beach County fringes the Atlantic coastline. As one of the statewide leaders in population growth, the county continually sets the pace for residential construction. The economically stable and vital Northern Palm Beach areas also offer the ideal South Florida business climate. Although tourism, construction, and agriculture were the dominant early industries; business has diversified over the years to include high technology, aerospace, manufacturing, engineering, communications, electronics and business services. Many of the nation’s most prestigious corporations have elected to move their national headquarters into this area.

Attracting quality employees to a Palm Beach County business couldn’t be simpler, considering the exceptional quality of life the region offers. Mild, tropical temperatures throughout the year encourage outdoor recreation and enjoyment of everything from outdoor concerts to outdoor farmers markets. Jazz concerts, nature walks, family events, cultural attractions, and first-rate entertainment are just a few of the advantages.

Services
Preparing our children to meet the very real challenges of the 21st century is the goal of the Palm Beach County School District.

More than 350 programs of study are available at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Junior College, and the College of Palm Beach. Other notable institutions of higher learning include Lynn University, Northwood Institute, and South College.

Lifestyle
Nearly 40 diverse municipalities and a host of unincorporated areas create the area known as Palm Beach County. The county’s western portion is mostly agricultural, while its large inland lakes offer some of the best fresh water fishing in the nation and draw anglers from around the world. Traveling east, affluent communities are located along the coastline and Intracoastal Waterway. The range of housing is expansive—condominiums, retirement communities, master-planned developments with private country clubs and luxurious estates.

Boasting mild temperatures and temperate waters, Palm Beach County is famous for its sports fishing and plentiful supply of Marlin, swordfish, and bluefin tuna. Protective refuges have been set aside for plant, animal and marine life that feature exhibits, nature trails, oceanfront dunes, and mangrove wetlands. Sunbathing, snorkeling, scuba diving, bird watching and hiking are popular activities. Upscale recreational opportunities abound in lush parks, verdant golf greens, and some of the finest tennis facilities in the Southeast.

Theater, music, dance, and visual arts shine brightly in elegant venues including the Raymond Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, the Jupiter Theater, the Norton Gallery of Art, the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Armory Art Center and the International Museum of Art Center. More than 160 shopping centers meet every taste and budget, featuring some of the finest dining and designer boutiques found anywhere in the world.

Modern Boca Raton stands as a living tribute to visionary architect Addison Mizner’s idealistic dream: A beautiful, aesthetically pleasing, thriving community filled with first-rate sports and recreation, unique architecture, and exquisite shopping and dining establishments. Sharing the essence of the Mediterranean “Boca” style while creating an identity all its own is West Boca, one of the major unincorporated suburban communities just outside the city limits. Recent decades have established Boca Raton as the hub of Palm Beach County and branded South Florida as “Silicon Beach.” Evidence of the traditional Spanish/Italian influence is most vividly apparent on Camino Real. Many stunning homes, condominiums, townhomes, and estates are available near or around the water. Much of the housing in Boca Raton is centered around club developments, offering a complete lifestyle with a strong emphasis on sports and recreation. Residents enjoy a number of outdoor pastimes including fishing and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean. The three main public beaches are all hidden from roadside view, offering a relaxing and welcome refuge from daily city life.

What began with a population of eight citizens, the community known as Delray Beach is now a thriving city that has retained its original “small-town” flavor by protecting its strong sense of tradition and ties to the past. Distinguished in the 1990s as an “All American City,” Delray Beach has been one of the fastest-growing communities in Palm Beach County for several decades. A solid, robust economy that focuses around agriculture, automotive, retail shopping and tourism has been responsible for attracting new businesses and industry to the city. Redevelopment along Atlantic Avenue and the designation of generous enterprise incentives along Congress Avenue are examples of the economically progressive attitude. Rated among the top beaches nationally, Delray Beach is also distinguished as the largest beach in the county. This scenic oceanfront area also features Morikami Park Museum and Japanese Garden, one of the only museums in the nation devoted solely to Japanese culture.

Established in 1949 by a small group of voters, Highland Beach reflects the care and concern of the people who call it home. In order to protect the serenity that planners originally envisioned, residents and town officials have continually worked together and taken steps to preserve the area’s natural attributes and ensure that their city remains a predominantly residential “bedroom community.” Boca Raton Community Hospital and Delray Medical Center provide comprehensive healthcare services. With that attitude as a foundation for lifestyle and growth, the area has remained a tightly knit society with little opportunity for commercial or industrial development. Most of the homes in Highland Beach are elegant single-family dwellings or equally lavish condominiums, although a quick glance from the roads reveals more of the long, winding driveways and tropical foliage than it does the upscale edifices they grace. Highland Beach offers no local schools to date; many excellent public and private schools are available nearby. Miles of hiking and biking trails encourage outdoor activity.
