Magical transformations in Delray Beach

Wall-to-wall sunshine comes as standard with all vacation rentals in Delray Beach, where no-frills condos, trendy apartments, and historic homes have one thing in common—Florida’s sun-kissed climate. This ritzy resort city is located in the heart of the Gold Coast, and boasts endless expanses of white-sand beach fringed by the sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Delray Beach vacation rentals also offer VIP access to a variety of attractions, from the sophisticated glamour of the nightclub strip to the bohemian charm of the arts district, magically transforming a simple beach break into a truly special occasion.

Delray Beach—going the extra mile

Golf, water sports, and cultural attractions are part of the package in most of Florida’s resorts, but Delray Beach likes to go one better than the average. Street-legal golf carts can be rented by the hour or day, with a free point-to-point pickup service available. The Delray Wreck—the remains of the steamship “Inchulva,” which sank offshore in 1903—provides one of the Atlantic Coast’s quirkiest scuba diving sites, while the Morikami Museum celebrates the art and culture of Japan with a bonsai garden, tea ceremony classes, and traditional festivals.

Delray Beach—off the beaten path

Many offbeat attractions lie within a short walk of downtown Delray Beach vacation rentals, so you won’t have to stray far from the beach to find exciting new experiences. At the Silverball Museum, you can let your flipper fingers loose on dozens of classic pinball machines and arcade games; the Sandoway Discovery Center offers up-close wildlife encounters and colorful displays of shells from around the world in a listed Resort Colonial Revival landmark; and the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum houses an important archive of African American culture in the former residence of pioneering educator Solomon D. Spady.

Steady sunshine in Delray Beach

The tropical climate of Florida’s Atlantic Coast, soothed by the Gulf Stream, delivers reliably dry, sunny weather all year round. Winter daytime temperatures rarely dip below the mid-70s, and although high summer can be humid, the ocean breezes help to offset the after-effects of tropical storms. Delray Beach vacation rentals with a pool are highly recommended to make the most of your moment in the sun. Mid-August through September is the most likely time for hurricanes, but if you’re prepared to take the risk you’ll find a wider choice of accommodation and fewer crowds.

Discover Delray Beach’s dynamic wetlands

The Wakodahatchee Wetlands span 50 acres of open water, marsh, and islands, linked by a boardwalk that offers interpretation and up-close views of the abundant wildlife. This dynamic habitat was created on reclaimed utility land, and has been spectacularly successful in attracting a diverse range of flora and fauna. The site is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, with over 170 species recorded inside the park. Turtles, alligators, and frogs have also colonized the wetlands, while native fan palms, duckweed, and giant bulrushes contribute to their distinctive appearance.
