Welcome to Lake Worth
Billing itself as 'Where the tropics begin,' this bohemian community sits further east than any place in South Florida. Meanwhile, just offshore, the Gulf Stream flows further west than anywhere along the coast. This geographical good fortune means Lake Worth has warm weather year-round. Add to that a distinct artsy vibe, a cool collection of eateries, a robust local music scene and a spectacular sliver of public-access beachfront. It comes as a surprise after its more suburban and suburban-chic neighbors.
