The annual Providencia Award is the County’s most important symbol of recognition for the local tourism industry, celebrating local businesses, organizations and/or individuals making extraordinary contributions to the vitality and prosperity of the county as a desirable tourist destination.  This year’s award has been won by the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.  Delray Beach was selected as one of the top10 ”Best Tennis Towns in America” by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) because of the annual International Tennis Championships.  This event brings almost 60,000 attendees, 25% from outside of Florida.

The local tourism industry employs tens of thousands of country residents, adding over $2.6BB annually to the local economy.  The Delray Beach ITC joins previous local winners of note, including The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, The Breakers Hotel, Kravis Center, Burt Reynolds, Ritz-Carlton, Norton Museum of Art, Boca Raton Resort and Club, Moroso Motor Sports, SunFest, Jack Nicklaus, Marathon of the Palm Beaches, Delta Airlines, Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. and the Palm Beach Kennel Club.

The Delray Beach Stadium and Tennis Center features the ATP Champions Tour and an ATP World Tour, both scheduled for February 18-27, 2011.  The best tennis players in the world participate and draw thousands of visitors to the area.

If you or someone you know would like to own a townhouse across the street from the stadium see sidebar for Atlantic Grove property and call Marilyn Jacobs at 561-302-3388 for a showing. Leasing and pets ok.
