History

The year was 1898.  Early settlers farmed pineapples and tomatoes in the lush green landscape. Fisherman worked along the Intracoastal waterway. ‘Deerfield’ named for the plentiful deer that grazed up and down the Hillsboro River.  This small community of 20 residents would soon grow to be a busy town! 

Through the ages, Deerfield Beach retains a relaxed charm. A place reminiscent of the cozy beach towns of days gone by. Located just south of Boca Raton and just north of Fort Lauderdale, this gold coast city can’t be beat! 

Now, the city’s population ranges from fifty to seventy-five thousand (depending on the season).  Deerfield Beach is approximately fifteen square miles of sunny southeast Florida

“Beach Town”

Deerfield Beach has one of South Florida’s Best public beaches. It was awarded a “Blue Wave” beach by the Clean Beach Council. This award is based on the Excellent Water Quality, Beach Conditions, Safety Services, & its’ Habitat Conservation Policies. 

Deerfield Beach maintains much of that “beach town” ambiance from its local commerce. The fresh seafood at Pop’s Fish Market, for instance, or great cocktails at Oceans234. We support local.

Our many canals and beaches offer the gamut in boating, fishing, surfing, and water activities. Dive in!  The water temperature is always perfect! 

To top off, we have a 975 foot Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier. Thousands of fisherman and tourists turn up every year to fish at this prime spot. Don’t have fishing gear? You can rent it at the pier concession stocks!

Restaurants, Parks & Airports

Deerfield Beach has a wide variety of restaurants, both on and off the beach. Most notably, the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” favorite, The Whale’s Rib. Moreover, some staff favorite’s include: Muddy Waters, Dandee Donut Factory and Two George’s at the Cove! 

Furthermore, there are so many parks and activities to enjoy! The Deer Creek Golf Club is an award-winning course designed by Arthur Mills. This public course is one of the most stunning courses in southeast Florida! Located just across from the Deer Creek golf community, is Quiet Waters Park. This facility features campgrounds, fishing, a skate park, and the longest “cable ski” course in the nation. Try it! 

Need to catch a flight? Conveniently, the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport is just 17 miles south. Likewise, the Palm Beach International Airport is about 30 minutes north. 

Both public and private schools are within the city.
