A diverse enclave, Lake Worth is a true haven for artists and free spirits. Built around a tree-shaded square, this eclectic downtown boasts a colorful collection of boutiques, galleries, inventive culinary options and historic Lake Worth Playhouse. Every February, the world-famous Street Painting Festival transforms downtown into a montage of masterpieces. The pavement becomes the canvas on the street; lasting only until the next raindrop. The town's annual Compass' PrideFest of Lake Worth and the Palm Beaches and Oktoberfest all further ensure the Lake Worth experience is truly one of cultural diversity.
Lake Worth slogan is "Where the tropics begin"...and that is indeed true. If you are looking for some great beach action, why not check out the excitement of the new fishing pier or Lake Worth Municipal Beach or tour the adjacent and newly opened Snook Island Natural Area at the foot of Lake Worth Bridge. Continuing on with your outdoor entertainment, how about practicing your backswing with a round or two of golf at area courses such as Winston Trails Golf Club or Park Ridge Golf Course. Just two of several great courses in the area.
