Wellington named Money Magazine's "Top 100" Best Places to Live in 2010 is a vibrant community with many parks, recreation and world class equestrian events. The city of Wellington now encompasses a 45.03 square mile area that is home to a full time population of 60,000 people and counting.
Those who are fortunate enough to own Wellington homes have a huge variety of recreational and lifestyle enhancing activities available to them right on their own doorsteps. Nearby is Lion Country Safari, the first 'cageless zoo' in the United States. As noted previously, the annual Western Equestrian Festival is the largest and longest running horse show in the world. Beach-goers have a 30 minute ride down State Road 80 /US 98/Southern Blvd to miles of pristine public beach-front for sunbathing, swimming, and a variety of water sports.
Nature lovers and those who simply love to be out in the semi tropical sun can explore the beautiful Peaceful Waters Sanctuary and The Wellington Environmental Preserve at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Everglades Habitat. Those with more athletic tastes can opt instead to make use of the baseball diamonds, tennis and basketball courts and walking trails in Olympia Park.
Shopping enthusiasts can explore Wellington's wide array of retail opportunities, including the unique Mall at Wellington Green and the Wellington Marketplace Shopping Center. There are also any number of fine dining establishments located in and around this growing city, especially along Forest Hill Blvd. and S. Shore Blvd where you can find cuisine to suit almost any palette.
Wellington homes range from modern single family homes to sprawling luxury estates and brand new amenity filled residential communities built to accommodate the city's new growth.
The average price of a Wellington home is somewhere in the region of $329,950 but like many other cities in Palm Beach County there are Wellington homes for sale available in price ranges lower than that, some for under $200,000, as well as those Wellington homes that sell over the million dollar mark.
