Welcome to West Palm Beach
The metropolitan center of the region
West Palm Beach is the governmental seat and cultural center of Palm Beach County and the region affectionately known as “The Palm Beaches.”
A city of more than 135,000 and a metropolitan area of 1.25 million, West Palm Beach offers a self-sufficient economic and lifestyle hub distinct from its southern neighbors of Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
Meanwhile, closer neighbors such as Boca Raton and Delray Beach in “South County,” Boynton Beach and Lake Worth in between, or Palm Beach Gardens and
Jupiter to the north, all remain culturally connected as part of the greater “Palm Beaches.”
Stretching in all directions, the city of West Palm Beach offers many distinct neighborhoods, but the key luxury homes lie along the waterfront. Residents enjoy the vast amount of real estate in the West Palm Beach area.

People & Lifestyle
Historically, West Palm Beach was the domain of the workers of the region, as opposed to the wealthy resort-goers of Palm Beach island.
Today, West Palm Beach offers a complete city lifestyle of its own. While it remains a mecca for transplants from the north, West Palm Beach is filled with many wealthy, successful natives vying for the same attractive properties.
