Though Lake Worth, FL has a bad reputation for violence and gang activity, this town has got to be one of the most haunted and picturesque towns in the state, if not in the country. Lake Worth is located 45 minutes north of Ft. Lauderdale and it makes part of the Miami-Ft Lauderdale-Palm Beach metropolitan area. Its downtown is really hippie, eclectic, laid back, and enjoyable, Though there is a fair share of street walkers, panhandlers and hobos, Lake Worth has a lot to offer as far as culture. Just make sure to stay no more than a few blocks away from Lake Avenue, if planning on relocating, North of the avenue is where you want to be. All the guats, rejects, gansters and thugs are on the south side of town. If you are into art and theatre this is one of the places to be, they hold the Night On the Avenue every third friday of the month, where lots of local artists come to showcase their work. Yearly one of the biggest street painting festivals takes place here, you will also find a bunch of PBR drinking hipsters, with their rimmed glassed and tatts. Just make sure you stay away from Lake Worth Beach, it is Hella Ghetto, its better to go to Phipps park, located just about a half mile north of Lake Worth Beach. If you are into the paranormal this would also be a good place to explore. lots of old houses, and the Lake Worth Playhouse, which its hauntings have been recorded over time and its still visited by paranormal investigators. Also Very gay friendly!
