The Clematis Street in West Palm Beach

The Clematis Street is located on the waterfront in West Palm Beach from Flagler Drive to Rosemary Avenue and is a truly wonderful place to dine, shop, relax, and conduct business. It is a truly electric South Florida paradise full of some fantastic historic architecture. It has developed over the past 115 years into one of the great South Florida destinations for locals and visitors alike. Even though the Clematis Street has experienced its fair share of growth and change over the years the city has adopted a master plan that sets limitation on future growth, hopefully restricting the area to a pedestrian friendly environment. The 500 blocks of Clematis Street has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places preserving the character and integrity of the street for many generations to come. The American Planning Association has recognized the Clematis Street in their Great Places in America. The Great Places in America was started in 2007 to celebrate places throughout America that showcase “exemplary character, quality, and planning. Places are selected annually and represent the gold standard in terms of having a true sense of place, cultural and historical interest, community involvement, and a vision for tomorrow. Great places people want to be not only to visit, but to live and work every day.” Come check out the fabulous Clematis Street area and everything it has to...
