Something for Everyone in Jensen Beach!
Offering a little local flavor, here are some of Kim’s favs:
Jensen Beach, only 50 miles from the Palm Beach International Airport, is a quiet, charming beach community that would appeal to anyone: foodies, shoppers, beach dwellers and even nesting sea turtles! This welcoming community dates back to the 1500s when the Ais Indians were inhabitants. Settled in the 1881 by John Laurence Jensen who planted pineapples there, Jensen Beach was formerly known as the “Pineapple Capital of the World.” In the late 1800s, more than 1,000,000 boxes of pineapples were shipped out during the summer months. A symbol of hospitality, the pineapple is still celebrated at the annual Jensen Beach Pineapple Festival that definitely draws a crowd.
The something-for-everyone atmosphere of this quaint town means that you will never lack for things to do. Water lovers can find everything under the sun: surfing, boating, skiing, fishing and scuba diving. Area boutiques, specialty stores and shopping centers offer the perfect opportunity to explore the area and get to know the community. At the end of the day, seafood-rich fine dining is something to look forward to! And you don’t want to miss Jammin Jensen every Thursday night from 6-9 on Jensen Beach Boulevard featuring the work of local artists, live music and a variety of excellent restaurants!
