Are you looking for a home with A rated schools, a quiet family atmosphere, serene lake views and park like surroundings? Then I urge you to consider Wellington. Wellington is a city in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States. It is the fifth largest municipality in Palm Beach County by population andwas named Money Magazine's "Top 100" Best Places to Live in 2010. Although Wellington is not a villageunder any standard definition of the term village in the US, it is referred to officially as the "Village of Wellington".
Wellington was originally the world's largest strawberry patch on land called the Flying Cow Ranch; "Flying" because the founder was an aviator, and "Cow" stood for the initials for Charles Oliver Wellington (C.O.W.) In the 1950's, Mr. Wellington bought 18,000 acres of central Palm Beach County swampland, which would eventually become the Village of Wellington. It has now become known as an international center for equestrian sports.
It is considered the top International Equestrian destination, renowned for itsequestriancommunity hosting equestrian events for the equestrian disciplines of show jumping, hunting, dressage and polo. Wellington holds the largest and longest running horse show in the world from January thru April.It is host to theWinter Equestrian Festivaland more than forty weeks of equestrian competitions per year.
Construction is underway on a new state of the art Community Center, with an estimated opening date in the Spring/Summer of 2016. Complete with Club house, Community Pool, Tennis Courts and much more available to its residents. Wellington boasts a large renovated public library, the Wellington Amphitheater,hosts events like free movie night, musical and comedy performances, the Food Truck Invasion every Friday and The Market Sat mornings with fresh produce and crafts. There are two regional malls The Mall at Wellington Green, and the Old Wellington Mall along with many other nationally known retailers and restaurants located in outdoor shopping venues nearby.
There are a number of entertainment and cultural venues such as the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts and the Norton Museum of Art in nearby West Palm Beach. Also the Science Museum and Dreher Park Zoo for the kids and of course the beautiful beaches all just 30 minutes away. Wellington is a beautiful place to live, I should know I've been a resident of Wellington since 2003 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I'm sure you will too!
