The Town of Ocean Ridge is located east of Boynton Beach and north of Briny Breezes along Route A1A and the Atlantic Ocean.  Ocean Ridge was originally founded as the Town of Boynton Beach in 1931.  However, in 1939 the name of the town was officially changed to Ocean Ridge.  Ocean Ridge has approximately 2,000 year round residents and slightly over 1,000 seasonal residents or snow-birds.  They like to describe their town as low-key, low-density and low-profile.  Privacy, seclusion and solitude are a way of life in Ocean Ridge.  Many people looking to purchase real estate in the south county area of Palm Beach, over look the Town of Ocean Ridge mainly because they have never heard of it.   

 

The history of Briny Breezes can only be described in real estate terms as extremely interesting and uniquely American.  Back in the 1920's the land that is now the Town of Briny Breezes was a strawberry farm owned by a Michigan lumberman Ward Miller.  Miller began offering the land for rent to people with trailers who would camp on the property.  In the late 1950's Miller offered all the campers the opportunity to purchase the land.  They brought their assets together and in 1963 the Town of Briny Breezes was incorporated.  It is the only beach front mobile home park in Florida and one of only two mobile home parks that are incorporated towns.  In 2005 developer Jean Francois Roy, of Ocean Land Investments, made an offer to purchase the entire town for 500 million dollars.  He later raised the offer to 510 million.  In 2007 Eighty percent of the town residents voted to approve the sale.   However, a dispute between the land developer and the town board of directors over the period of due diligence to be permitted caused the deal to fall through.
