Lake Worth

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.

Lake Worth has avoided high-rise development and still maintains its old-world Florida flavor. 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. 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. The largest Oktoberfest in South Florida is held here every October.  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.
