Welcome to West Palm Beach

A thriving city with abundant activities, cultural spots, and vibrant restaurants
If you’re thinking about living in West Palm Beach, you won’t find it hard to settle into your new tropical life. Nicknamed “the Orchid City”, West Palm Beach, FL, is located north of Delray Beach and Boca Raton, and just across the Intracoastal Waterway from Palm Beach.
The area was given its name when a Spanish ship carrying a load of 20,000 coconuts crashed off the coast. The locals gathered the coconuts that washed ashore and planted palm trees that give Palm Beach county its famous palm trees.  
West Palm Beach represents coastal city living at its finest. This lively, artsy, downtown scene is always booming with activity from all age groups. Driving through the historic downtown neighborhoods you’ll be greeted with beautiful streets lined with tall palm trees, vibrant colors, and a city of people who truly love where they live. This city is the perfect mix of small-town life and big-city flair.

People and Lifestyle

West Palm Beach isn’t just a retirees’ paradise, like other South Florida cities. Although it has plenty of senior living options, this urban center is full of young professionals living there. And, with the influx of new business, the city recently employed a $30 million revitalization of the downtown waterfront, offering a new performance theater and community gardens. Residents like to keep active by using the variety of walkable boulevards and bike paths in town. 
West Palm Beach offers many families the ease of a laid-back lifestyle with the opportunities of a fast-paced city. On any given weekend, you can stroll the palm tree-lined streets while enjoying beautiful views of the Intracoastal waterways, watching boats pass by. Residents might take a visit to the famous Greenview Market hosted on Saturdays or pop into Subculture for a strong cup of small-batch, freshly roasted coffee. Clematis Street and Rosemary Square offer world-class shopping and offer a plethora of activities and things to do on the weekends.
