Get to know Gulf Stream

Where vast polo fields once stood — drawing fans via car, train, and boat — the mighty coastal homes of Gulf Stream now reside. This Palm Beach County draws its name from the similarly-titled warmth-generating Atlantic Ocean current and provides a similar sensation for those arriving within its bounds along State Road A1A. Things shine from sunrise to sunset wherever you plant your flag. Atlantic beachfront dwellings form the town’s most spectacular collection of homes, while residences on both sides of the Intracoastal gleam with that particular Palm Beach brand of refinement. For hours spent out of the house, Gulf Stream is a recreational paradise whose beloved Gulf Stream Golf Club was designed by esteemed course architect Donald Ross and includes a Mediterranean Revival clubhouse by Addison Mizner. With bustling happenings a short, scenic drive away in Delray Beach and Gulf Stream is a tropical escape worth making.

Living in The Palm Beaches

When the Spanish brigantine “Providencia” ran aground in 1878 with a cargo of 20,000 coconuts, early settlers planted most of them in the sand, sprouting the spindly non-native trees that would come to define South Florida’s preeminent paradise playground. From a singular, namesake enclave on Lake Worth Lagoon grew a cluster of mainland and barrier island communities that would come to collectively be known as The Palm Beaches. What was once predominantly a winter haven for Northeast magnates and moguls is today a thriving metropolitan region, welcoming residents and sojourners alike with world-class culture, a thriving economy, and the quintessential climate to maximize your time outdoors. Whether deep sea fishing off Jupiter Inlet, hitting the links off PGA Boulevard, or mounting on horseback in Wellington, there’s little one can’t enjoy year-round.
