One look around Palm Beach County and you're sure to understand why so many business leaders choose to call this dynamic region home. Perhaps the most obvious advantage to living in South Florida is the beautiful weather. Residents enjoy their favorite activities year-round thanks to the area's semi-tropical climate and turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean, where the Gulfstream comes closest to the Eastern Seaboard and keeps it breezy. Yet you'll also discover that even when people come here for the gorgeous scenery and the world-class amenities, Palm Beach County's quality of life encompasses so much more than the amazing weather.

Our quality of life has enticed many global businesses to relocate headquarters, open regional offices, or start branches in Palm Beach County. For residents, Palm Beach County’s natural assets and year- round amenities contribute to a lifestyle that balances work in an exquisite setting with recreation, relaxation, and a rich cultural community including dozens of museums, a multitude of art and antique galleries, music and dance, and more than 17 theaters.

From the northern reaches of the rolling dunes in Jupiter and Tequesta to Henry Flagler’s private vacation retreat now known as the island of Palm Beach, to the glorious Addison Mizner architecture of Boca Raton in the south, Palm Beach County’s tropical heart beats with energy and excitement.
