  • Bal Harbour

    Browse Communities in Bal Harbour FL  Bal Harbour, Florida, is a chic little village in Miami-Dade County. With a population of 3,305 as of the 2000 census, Bal Harbour is a cozy place to call home. Its total area is 0.6 square miles, and 0.3 of those are water. Bal Harbour was scheduled to begin development in the 1930s and 1940s, but building plans were delayed by the onset of World War II. Bal Harbour has an interesting history – the landowner rented his large tracts of land to the government for $1 per year. The government used it as training grounds and as a camp for prisoners of war. Today, Bal Harbour’s boutique shops are located where the prison camp once was. The city required some design and planning, as swampland had to be filled so it could hold houses. Walls were built to protect against the ocean, and planners built a yacht basin. The name itself has an unusual origin – “Bay Harbour” was the initial choice, but it was pointed out that the village was actually on the ocean. “B” from “bay” was added to “al” from Atlantic, and the name “bal” was born. If you like to shop, you might want to move to, or at least visit, Bal Harbour. In terms of revenue per square foot, the Bal Harbour shops location is one of the most productive in the entirety of the world. Retailers include Tiffany’s, Gucci, Saks Fifth Avenue, Chanel, and more. If you want to live here, though, be aware that there’s an application process of sorts. Homeowners associations rigorously examine prospective residents before they are allowed to move in. Bal Harbour is home to the Unscripted project, a set of commissions designed to bring out and showcase the artistic talents of South Florida residents. Life here is life to the fullest.

  • Boca Raton

    Browse Community Rentals, Sales and Foreclosures in Boca Raton Florida The picturesque city of Boca Raton, Florida, is ideal for a trip to the resort or for a full-time residence. Boca Raton is full of natural beauty; the city is on the water, allowing cool breezes and incredible views. Landscaping makes use of Florida’s incredible flora. For instance, Mizner Park, which is located in the financial district of Boca Raton, has streets and sidewalks lined with tall palms. Boca Raton understands the importance of the natural environment and the beauty contained within, and, as a result, building codes have cut down on billboards and advertisements. Much of the architecture is somewhat Mediterranean, giving an authentic look to much of the city. Boca Raton can be an expensive place to live – according to Forbes Magazine, it is home to three of the ten priciest gated communities in the country, including the #1, The Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club. This particular club is home to a stunning Mediterranean-style clubhouse and beautiful landscaping. At one point, Boca Raton was the site of the headquarters of IBM. Though the company has moved, Boca Raton is rather intriguingly known as being a nexus of computer crime, especially spam-based problems. Scott Levine was famously indicted in 2004 on some of the most extensive computer crime charges in history. The population of Boca Raton hovers around 88,093, at least as of 2006. The city has an area of 29.1 square miles, so it isn’t unduly dense. Moreover, the large selection of schools makes it an agreeable place to raise children, as there is a large degree of choice in what school you attend. Still, Boca Raton is large: it’s the largest city located in between West Palm Beach and Pompano Beach, which is in Broward County. Boca Raton’s motto is “A City for All Seasons,” and with its incredible scenery and great resources, it still lives up to its name.

  • Boynton Beach

    Browse Community Rentals, Sales and Foreclosures in Boynton Beach Florida Boynton Beach bears the name of a former American Civil War Major named Nathan Boynton. Boynton visited the area, located in Palm Beach County, Florida. He loved the natural beauty and wanted to develop it. The year was 1894, and Boynton soon opted to build the Boynton Hotel. He spent winters there with his family, and he also brought in people from Michigan. The new residents soon discovered the fertile soil and great climate. The building of the Florida East Coast Railroad helped settlers share the fruits of the new beach-farmland with others. Pineapples, tomatoes, citrus, and mangoes were packed and shipped to other regions. In the 1920s, it was another railroad, the Seaboard Air Line Railway, which spurred the development of the city further inland. The city is traversed by the Intracoastal Waterway, and soon, development grew around that as well. In 2005, Hurricane Wilma did some major damage, but the city has recovered well. It is ripe with the possibility of new opportunities. Boynton Beach actually doesn’t front the ocean, though it’s very close. The only water frontage it has is on the Intracoastal Waterway. Boynton Beach has a wealth of schools, including 11 elementary schools, three middle schools, and two high schools. The total land area of the city is 16.25 square miles, and the population, as of 2010, was 68,217, so it isn’t particularly dense.

Celebrities endorsed it, and it was advertised aggressively. It was unique because of its convenient canal network. Now, though, Cape Coral is still a popular and thriving community. First, it was popular with retirees, and later, younger families began to settle in. As of 2010, the population was over 150,000. Cape Coral offers fantastic business opportunities for anyone who is enterprising. The road-and-canal transportation approach makes it so your business can be accessible both to boaters and drivers, and the large population means you can easily reach a large number of people. Fort Myers is nearby, and you can, therefore, also draw from that population if you need more business opportunities. As far as recreation, Cape Coral offers a good bit. It’s on the Caloosahatchee River, which is great for fishing, boating, swimming, etc. Cape Coral hosts festivals including an art festival, and many parks are available for residents to use.

  • Davie

Worth, a general in the Second Seminole War. This city has a rich history, and it was inhabited by Native Americans known as the Jaega before non-Native settlers arrived. Still, the city has remnants of Native American roots. Shell mounds can still be found. The first non-Native American settlers to arrive were two ex-slaves called Samuel and Fannie James. They settled in 1883 and made a claim using the Homestead Act. Their land holdings doubled, and they eventually sold to the Palm Beach Farms Company. The area’s post office was called Jewel and was a stop on the trail of the famous barefoot mailmen of Florida. The extension of Henry Flagler’s rail line was instrumental in the formation of the present-day Lake Worth. Settlers were able to acquire large land lots and also smaller lots within the City of Lake Worth. The year 1911 marked a year of real progress for the city. The first church, Chamber of Commerce, newspaper, and women’s club were all established in that year. Lake Worth is located very close to West Palm Beach, so if you want to take a break and go somewhere new, some of Florida’s best nightlife, restaurants, shops, and more are just a short drive away. Several schools are located in the city, making it ideal if you have children. Many schools, both public and private, are available for resident consideration. Plenty of recreational opportunities are here, too. Many public parks exist, and the Municipal Beach offers a public yet unspoiled stretch of beach available to all. An interesting location, Bryant Park, also has a 1920s band shell which is useful for special events. There is a new boardwalk, and you can share your city with an array of wildlife including herons, egrets, cormorants, and more.

  • Lantana

    Browse Community Rentals, Sales and Foreclosures in Lantana FL The quaint coastal town of Lantana, Florida, is a great way to experience the bonuses of Palm Beach County life without having to worry about traffic, congestion, and the like. Lantana has a rich history. It was founded by the Lyman family and was named for the lantana plants that grew in it. It was originally called Lantana Point, but eventually, the “point” was removed, maybe because there’s no clear point in the somewhat square-shaped town. Lantana has an area of 2.29 square miles, and the 2010 census found a population of 10,423. Lantana has developed from a small town with few businesses to a thriving hometown for many. It started with a general store and a post office, as well as an operation called the Indian Trading Post. The Lantana Fish Company was another early business, and it helped the catching and sales of oysters to become the town’s major industry. As it grew, the town was eventually incorporated. That was the year 1921, when 22 residents voted. Further business development occurred with the building of Interstate 95. Like it did for much of South Florida, I-95 provided a major kick-start in the industrial and commercial aspects of Lantana life. In 1950, an important establishment began in the town. It is the A.G. Holley Hospital, which is dedicated to treating tuberculosis victims. It is still in operation today, and it treats about 50 patients at a time. Lantana took part in a famous tradition – from 1974 to 1988, it hosted the largest decorated Christmas tree in the world. Via rail, an enormous tree was shipped from the Pacific Northwest. It was decorated, and the attraction drew throngs of visitors every year. Today, Lantana’s population has grown considerably, and residents develop new traditions of their own. Don’t miss this fantastic and historical town.

Though it’s huge, Miami has been ranked by Forbes as “America’s Cleanest City.” Its population is estimated to be about 5.5 million. The city was incorporated in 1896. It was planned by Julia Tuttle, a citrus grower, and is the only major U.S. city to be thought of and designed by a woman. The city has grown remarkably quickly. The seemingly exponential growth earned it the nickname “The Magic City.” When you live in Miami, you’re never far from water. Miami is close to the Everglades and to Biscayne Bay.

  • North Bay Village

    Browse Communities in North Bay Village FL When you come into North Bay Village, the first thing you see is a lovely stone and metal sign surrounded by native plants. The somewhat misleadingly-named city – it is, actually, the City of North Bay Village, if you want to be technical – is small. Its total area is less than one square mile, but its population as of 2010 was 7,137. The city was actually underwater, beneath the Biscayne Bay, until 1940. The island was filled in and streets installed. Today, this island has some extraordinary restaurants. Many residences are single-family homes. However, a new building trend has moved towards the installation of luxury condominium buildings. This city isn’t huge yet. The population is still growing, but the city isn’t yet built-out, and you can still find a home or condominium. North Bay Village has its own farmers’ market, parades, and more. If you want to live somewhere that’s quaint and has the authentic Florida-island feel, North Bay Village might just fit. North Bay Village has come a long way since it began. In 1941, there were only 12 homes. Today, there are 376 single-family homes, as well as an array of apartments, condominiums, businesses, restaurants, and more. With North Bay Village’s thriving economy, business creation or expansion makes a lot of economic sense. There’s a proximity to Miami that makes it convenient for marketing and shipping. The proximity to the city is especially important if you want a personal life full of art and culture. While North Bay Village has some nightlife options – its clubs once drew Frank Sinatra to the island – you can find even more to do in Miami. You can have the perfect balance of smaller-city life with bigger-city resources. Whether you want to start a business venture, start a family, or both, you’ll find all kinds of opportunities to bring your life to the next level.

  • North Miami

    Browse Communities in North Miami FL North Miami is nicknamed “City of Progress,” and it’s not without reason. Appropriately, North Miami is roughly ten miles north of Miami. The area is ten square miles, and the population, at least as of 2007, was 56,185. North Miami’s progress began with Native American residents and the advent of the railroad. North Miami is the site of the first “road” in Dade County – a military trail hacked through thickets and woodlands. The trail connected Fort Lauderdale and Fort Dallas. This “road” contained a natural bridge made of limestone. The bridge crossed a creek at one time, but the creek doesn’t exist anymore. Instead, the area is commemorated by Arch Creek Memorial Park. The early settlement in the area was called Arch Creek. The “road” was made in 1856, and the first citizens of Arch Creek arrived in 1891. An Arch Creek Railroad Depot was formed, and a community sprang up around it. In the early 1900s, a church, almost 20 homes, a blacksmith’s shop, a general store, and packing houses for tomatoes have been established. Military veterans and their families moved in after World War II. Today, North Miami is a fascinating hub of culture and energy. It is home to the Museum of Contemporary Art, which was built by renowned architect Charles Gwathmey. Two state parks can be found in North Miami. Though it is urbanized, North Miami has the largest urban park of all Florida state parks. This park is called Oleta River State Park. Also, Arch Creek Park, formed around the historic limestone arch, is part of the city.

Who wouldn’t want to live in a city whose name evokes both the stately beauty of the royal palms and the incredible opportunity that awaits in Palm Beach County? Royal Palm Beach wasn’t always as it is now, though. The city is somewhat average-aged for Palm Beach County – it incorporated in 1959. It was once a hunting ground for the Seminole tribe. Two supermarket magnates purchased the tract of land in the 1950s and then sold it to a developer named Arthur Desser. Desser wanted the phrase “Palm Beach” to be included in the name of the future development. He also admired the royal palms in the area, so he decided on the name Royal Palm Beach.

Though it may be small, the village is home to Palms West Hospital and Wellington Regional Medical Center. There are plenty of options in Royal Palm Beach for recreation.
