Wellington Florida Is All About South Florida Living In Style!
Wellington Florida is located just 14 miles West of famous Palm Beach! Hey, how's that for getting close to the stars! You can be at the beach in about 20 minutes from Wellington Fl. We go to the beach at least twice a month. After all, why live in Florida if you don't go to the beach! Tourists come from all over the world to bask in the sun on our beaches so why should we not partake? So make sure to make yourself a promise that when you move to Wellington Florida you will go to the beach often. And if you already live in Wellington, grab your loved ones and head to the beach this weekend! See what you have been missing! Right in your own back yard! It is great to live so close but yet not right on the beach because we have never been evacuated for a hurricane here in Wellington, Florida. Now that is the best of all worlds. So come to live in the Sunshine State of Florida.
Wellington is situated West of West Palm Beach, North of Lake Worth and South of Royal Palm Beach. Before we became our own municipality we had the West Palm Beach as the postal city. Some computer systems still have West Palm Beach when you plug in our zip code here: 33414. Where we lay geographically is great because we still get ocean breezes and it is cooler here than inland like Orlando.
The median income is higher than the national average and higher than most cities in Florida according to the 2000 U.S. Census Bureau at $ 70,271 per household. There are a lot of professionals like Doctors, Attorneys, Corporate Executives, Teachers and other professional people living in Wellington, Florida. We used to be a bedroom community but no more! Wellington is home to many Equine folks and events. We have our own mall now! And it a great mall, 2 stories, indoor and outdoor. You can shop until you drop here in your own town! Many people still commute to areas like Ft Lauderdale and Miami for work because of the quality of life afforded here in Wellington, Fl.
Interested in knowing about the history of Wellington and how the town came about in the first place? I wrote a post about it here: Why-Is-Wellington-Named-Wellington. Equestrians love Wellington. There are some awesome stables around here! We are home to the Winter Equestrian Festival and have many Polo events here. Tommy Lee Jones plays Polo here and so does Sylvester Stallone and his dad, Frank Stallone; who's wife Kathleen is the very first friend I made when I moved here 12 years ago. She and I have become very good friends and she taught me all that I do know about Polo. In fact, I had never been to a game of Polo until she invited me to one. The Equestrian Preserve is at the South end of Wellington and sits right up against the Florida Everglades. This area of the Village of Wellington has been preserved and the zoning will always be for Equestrians.
According to the US Census there were over 38,000 people living in Wellington, Florida. Because of this fast growth Wellington built a new high school called Palm Beach Central High School. They also built a new elementary school, Binks Elementary. We just expanded the library which just re-opened on July 21, 2007.
We have great golf courses here to so if Golf is your fancy the by all means come and enjoy our golf courses.You can get some great deals on golf tee off times during the off season which is summertime here. Look for more posts that I am doing about golf in Wellington Fl.
