Commerce & Culture
Through a happy, marshy accident, Ocean Ridge has several large areas of undeveloped land that remain in a relatively pristine state and are protected as county parks and natural areas. These feature amenities like boardwalk walking trails, observation towers, and plenty of greenery and wildlife. The local beaches are as fine as any on the coast, and Ocean Ridge Hammock Park is a wild oasis in the middle of a more crowded stretch of Atlantic coastline. Other than boat charters and (mostly) long-term rentals, there’s no business getting done in Ocean Ridge, though there are a variety of fun and funky restaurants just across the Intracoastal in the more bustling Boynton Beach. Locals venture west for all their services, and then disappear back across the water when their errands are done.
