Ocean Ridge was originally founded in 1931 as the Town of Boynton Beach, but changed to the name of Ocean Ridge in 1937. The name “Ocean Ridge” had been selected from submissions for a town naming contest, with a prize of $100 going to the individual providing the winning name. Shortly thereafter, the Town of Boynton changed its name to Boynton Beach. To this day Ocean Ridge remains secluded, a community that seems to value its solitude. With less than 2,000 year-round residents and about 1,000 more seasonal residents, Ocean Ridge is a small low-density and low-profile community with a strong tradition of the protection and beautification of the nature habitat.
Ocean Ridge’s residents also enjoy the town’s proximity to neighboring Delray Beach and Manalapan with fabulous boutique, cafes, restaurants, and galleries. Palm Beach is just a short drive north and offers several luxury shopping and fine dining options as well.
