Because the Gulf Stream flows very close to the coastline, anglers are able to catch a wide variety of fish without having to navigate far offshore. For this reason, many of the homes along the Intracoastal Waterway and deep water canals in neighborhoods such as Delray Harbor Club, Yacht Club Condos, and Del Harbour, boast private docks and boat slips that can accommodate large fishing vessels. Golf aficionados favor country club communities like Addison Reserve, Delaire Country Club, Mizner, St. Andrews Fairways, Polo Trace, and Seagate Country Club, which boast championship golf courses, grand clubhouses, tennis facilities, exercise rooms, playgrounds, walking trails, and more.

The real estate boom also shaped Delray’s creative culture, gifting the area with famed writers, illustrators, and cartoonists such as Edna St. Vincent Millay, Charles Williams, Herb Roth, H.T. Webster, and Fontaine Fox to name just a few. These artists---along with celebrities, sports figures, and politicians---gathered at the Arcade Tap Room on East Atlantic Avenue, a secret speakeasy during the Prohibition that still serves patrons lively libations.
