By popular referendum, citizens amended the legal name of Lake Worth to Lake Worth Beach, which seems like overkill until you realize just how perfect that doubly aquatic name is. Lake Osborne is home to manatees, waterfowl, boat ramps, and hiking trails at the city’s western edge. To the east are the municipal golf course (one of the most scenic, public or private, in Florida), Lake Worth Lagoon (part of the Intracoastal Waterway, but not riddled with boat slips or a shipping port), and the flawless beaches of South Palm Beach. Though Lake Worth Beach is a full-fledged city with nearly 40,000 residents, most people who call it home refer to it as a neighborhood. Spend a little time here, and it’s easy to see why. It’s an idyllic locale with a quaint downtown that oozes Americana in the best possible way.
