Deerfield Beach, Florida is a upbeat ocean side community of just over 79,000 lying along the Atlantic Ocean, just South of Boca Raton and 20 miles north of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Deerfield Beach began humbly as a pineapple farming area in the early 1900s, and continued as a small farming community until the late 1940s. As the popularity of the South Florida’s Gold Coast grew, so did the city of Deerfield Beach, and today it is a dynamic coastal town with an exciting beach front buzzing with activity.

The beaches here are near pristine and completely open to the public. But for a break from the waves, residents can easily take a quick drive to Fort Lauderdale or Miami for major league sports and world-class entertainment.
