Introduction To Summer
For us full-time South Florida residents
Summer in Delray Beach is quite different than winter in Delray Beach, Florida. When the snowbirds go up North, we often experience less traffic, and the rain cannot be predicted. The humidity and heat can be off of the charts as well, but that is another topic.
However, for those of us who remain full-time South Florida residents, we can enjoy the activities and events that take place throughout the summer months of June, July and August!
Aside from the tropical beaches, shopping along Atlantic Avenue and visiting nature trails, Delray Beach offers a lot to do. It is great to stay updated on the local events, and that is why our team at Alan Abramson chooses to share our insights with you!
Take out your calendars and do not forget to block out your schedules for these upcoming events!
