Public and private school systems serving families in the area include the school district of Palm Beach County. Many of the schools that serve the Delray area are “A” rated schools.

Commuters in this area are served by train, with the Tri-Rail that runs through the middle of Palm Beach County, near I-95. The Palm Beach County Transit has a very efficient bus service for the county as well as local bus service in downtown Delray called, “Downtown Roundabout”. Major highways include I-95 and the Florida Turnpike freeway interchanges.

In recent years, Downtown Delray, located in the eastern part of the city, along Atlantic Avenue, east of I-95 and stretching to the beach, has undergone a large scale renovation. This area is now home to several upscale restaurants and several different assorted shops. Major driving factors in this renovation have been the business brought to the area by the Delray Beach Tennis Center, which has hosted several major international tennis events such as the April 2005 Fed Cup (USA vs. Belgium), the April 2004 Davis Cup (USA vs. Sweden), the Millennium ITC (ATP Event), and the Chris Evert / Bank of America Pro Celebrity. Concurrent with the new construction of the Tennis Center, several local historic landmark structures were renovated during the last decade of the 20th century. These include Old School Square, formerly Delray Elementary School and Delray High School, since turned into a thriving cultural center; and the Colony Hotel. Old School Square comprises the Crest Theatre, a venue for the performing arts, in the former High School building; the 1925 Gymnasium, restored to maintain its appearance, which has since become a popular venue for local events such as wedding receptions and dances; the Cornell Museum of Art and History, built in the restored Elementary School; and a recently constructed outdoor entertainment pavilion, which serves as a venue for musical performances and has also been used for events such as political rallies. More recently, the historic home of teacher/principal Solomon D. Spady was renovated and turned into the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum. The Spady Museum houses a black archives and hosts exhibits and programs designed to recognize the efforts of blacks who were instrumental in shaping Delray Beach and Palm Beach County. As of 2007 the museum is being expanded with the renovation of a 1935 cottage as a Kid’s Cultural Clubhouse, and the construction of a 50-seat amphitheater named for C. Spencer Pompey, a pioneer black educator.

Downtown Delray Beach is a retail, cultural, and residential hub. The area offers a multitude of upscale restaurants, retail, nightclubs, and art galleries. The city has a distinct pedestrian friendly atmosphere, which is aided by the prevalence of parallel parking and many municipal parking lots and garages. A popular local event is the Delray Affair, a three day long art and street fair, is hosted in Downtown Delray annually.

In earlier years downtown Delray was centered along Atlantic Avenue as far west as Swinton Avenue and as far east as the intracoastal waterway. Downtown is expanding very rapidly, however. Downtown Delray now extends as far west as I-95 and as far east as the Atlantic Ocean; The north-south boundaries extend several blocks north and south of Atlantic Avenue. North of Atlantic Avenue is the Pineapple Grove district of Downtown Delray. A wide array of art galleries can be found in this neighborhood, as well as many new urban residential townhomes.

The City of Delray Beach has a Commission-Manager form of local government. The people elect a Mayor every two years who presides over four commission members who are elected to two year terms in alternating years. The City Commission appoints a City Manager who is the Chief Operational Officer for the City and the City Attorney who acts on all legal matters pertaining to the City. The City Manager is charged with overseeing the business of the City and is responsible to the City Commission for the supervision of the City’s various departments and employees. The Mayor and the City Commission make policy, pass on ordinances and regulations, confer with Palm Beach County officials on regional issues and meet regularly each month at meetings attended by and participated in by the public at large.
