Lake Worth Real Estate

The coastal Florida city of Lake Worth in Palm Beach County is bounded by the cities of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach to the north and the Atlantic Ocean and the Lake Worth Lagoon to the east. To the west are Palm Springs and Greenacres, and Lantana lies to the south. The city is located at the latitude where the North American subtropics begin, giving it a mild, subtropical climate.

Unlike many of its South Florida neighbors, Lake Worth has avoided high-rise development and still maintains its old-world Florida flavor. While economic growth is encouraged, residents and civic leaders are committed to making sure its character is maintained. The city has a great deal of respect for its rich architectural history, with bragging rights to over 1,000 historic buildings including some of the oldest in South Florida. Six designated historic districts protect and preserve the buildings within these districts. Some of South Florida's most attractive architecture can be found in the affluent neighborhood of College Park in the northeast corner of the city. Along downtown's Lake Avenue you'll find some of the area's oldest commercial structures, including the Lake Worth Playhouse.

Though its buildings may be historic, Lake Worth is a dynamic, modern, multi-cultural city. Ethnic communities represented here include Guatemalans, Finnish and Germans, to name just a few with a strong sense of social and historical awareness and a strong love for the arts. Lake Worth's German population explains the number of beer halls, chocolatiers and Bavarian markets somewhat unusual in South Florida. The largest Oktoberfest in South Florida is held here every October. Finlandia Week attracts thousands each year. When Lake Worth's Finnish community is combined with Lantana's, it becomes the largest Finnish community in the United States. The city attracts creative, iconoclastic residents who appreciate its unique character and mix of different cultures and lifestyles.

Lake Worth is known for its hip downtown district with a popular theater as well as live music venues, sidewalk cafes, galleries, antiques shops, boutiques and plenty of restaurants. The city holds a bi-weekly Friday street festival called "Evening on the Avenues," featuring music, art kiosks and food. Property values have soared with the resurgence of this vibrant downtown and the residential areas surrounding it. The shopping, dining, culture, parks and beaches of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach are within a short driving distance for even more options.

Opportunities for outdoor life and recreation are many as well. Lake Worth's Municipal Beach is one of the only large tracts of public space on the ocean in southeast Florida. A municipal golf course, a fishing pier and a waterfront amphitheater join parks and athletic fields in providing plenty of room to play.
