Atlantis

Atlantis
A small community of 2,005 residents, the city of Atlantis is situated between Lake Worth and Lantana.

It is home to the Atlantis Country Club, considered one of the most aesthetically beautiful country club communities in the country, and the Atlantis Golf Club, which had the first 18-hole course in the area. 43% of Atlantis’ total land area is devoted to recreation and permanent open space, and the JFK Medical Center and surrounding physicians’ offices are its primary commercial industry.

Living in Atlantis

The idyllic South Florida community of Atlantis is an idyllic planned community with an emphasis on making the most of its natural surrounding—nearly half of its land is devoted to recreational and outdoor spaces. With two golf courses and a wide variety of planned events, residents seldom need to stray far from home to find plenty to do both day and night. The neighborhood’s ideal location between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale—both accessible via nearby Interstate 95—ensures the best entertainment, shopping and dining perks in South Florida are reachable by car in less than 30 minutes.

Atlantis real estate

Atlantis real estate options are largely weighted toward single-family homes, but condos are also available. Both choices offer access to all of the neighborhood’s many amenities like world-class golf, outdoor pools and running paths. The meandering roads to the west of the Atlantic Clubhouse are lined with typically Mediterranean and Spanish-style villas set in expansive lawns and shaded by palm trees. The modern construction means additions like screened-in rear patios and high-end appliances are common. Towards the eastern end of Atlantis, the area around JFK Circle is largely given over to condos, often with private balconies, hurricane shutters and lakeside views.

Atlantis history

The history of Atlantis began in 1958 when Nathan Hunt and Paul Kintz purchased a sprawling cattle ranch of more than 800 acres from former State Senator Philip D. Lewis. With the help designer Ernest L. Green, the two men set out to develop a pristine community with golf as the main drawing card. A picturesque clubhouse and the Atlantis Inn, as well as the first golf course, were soon built in the early 1960s and helped spur the zone’s population growth in subsequent decades. The Atlantis of today still lies on the same acreage purchased in the 1950s with three high-quality golf courses remaining the focal point for many of its residents.

Atlantis restaurants

Locals flock to Atlantis Pizza for authentic New York-style pies served close to home. The bustling pizza joint, which also delivers to the entire area, serves hand-tossed favorites like the Hawaiian and meat lovers pizzas, as well as an Atlantis special with artichoke hearts, broccoli and mushrooms.

For upscale surf and turf, you’ll want to frequent the Atlantis Grill and Bar for its afternoon happy hour and mouth-watering lunch and dinner dishes. The restaurant’s low lighting and wood interior pairs well with tasty menu items like mahi picatta, coconut shrimp and filet mignon.

Rosalita’s Tex-Mex Grill has won award after award and has kept Atlantis residents coming back for South-of-the-Border cuisine since 1994. The popular eatery knows how to get the day started, too, with a happy hour before noon and dishes ranging from chorizo quesadillas and lobster enchiladas to their famous chipotle baby back ribs.

Atlantis attractions

The gorgeous Atlantis Golf Club doesn’t disappoint for first-time players and regulars alike. With three different nine-hole golf courses treating players to lakefront views and tree-lined fairways, most residents use any excuse to hit the links. A driving range, teaching professionals and putting greens ensure everyone improves their game and takes full advantage of South Florida’s ever-present sunshine.

Atlantis shopping

Tucked inside the Shoppes of Atlantis, Within Books Boutique Cafe stocks a wide selection of inspiring reads and unique gifts aimed at uplifting the mind and spirit. The cafe not only sells one-of-a-kind jewelry, candles and wall decor, but serves freshly-roasted coffee, lattes and teas.

Residents with a sweet tooth frequent Scheurer’s Hand Dipped Chocolates for delectable treats from a long-running family business. The covered oreos and gift assortments are particularly popular among locals.

Atlantis events

There’s a busy weekly schedule at Kintz Park; friends old and new congregate to enjoy a wide range of morning and afternoon courses and events like yoga classes, tap dance rehearsals and art shows. Conveniently situated in the middle of the neighborhood, the park is no more than a half mile from any home in Atlantis.

People might frequent Rosalita’s Tex-Mex Grill once or more a week for some of the best Mexican cuisine in South Florida, but their Annual Cinco de Mayo Party draws in crowds from further afield as well their regular. The full night of live music, face painting and local entertainment sees residents and visitors come together and gives attendees a chance to savor the restaurant’s famous margaritas and win door prizes.

Atlantis nightlife

While Atlantis’ quiet ambiance and a thriving nightlife don’t go hand in hand, residents hoping to find a nearby watering hole are in luck. Major’s Pub and Grill sits about a mile to the south of Atlantis with pool tables, darts and big-screen televisions for the next big game. With opening hours lasting well past midnight and plenty of beers on tap, the cozy confines are a popular evening spot and have served the surrounding community for over 20 years.
