Wilton Manors: Embrace Diversity and Excitement
According to the 2010 US Census, Wilton Manors is a happier place than the Disney Tea Cups, being the “Second gayest City” in America. Second to only Provincetown, MA in the proportion (15%) of gay couples relative to the total population (couples as reported to the U.S. Census). But keep in mind, this is not a gay neighborhood, It’s a diverse community celebrated for its inclusivity that embraces and welcomes all.
The feel of this vibrant ‘niche’ island city is a blend of small-town and urban with a splash of glitter raining down. There’s an ever-growing arts and entertainment district lined with trendy restaurants and eateries, bars and nightclubs, intimate shops and then, ‘intimate’ shops. It is definitely progressive and there’s a little something for everyone. While the population is just shy of 13,000, you’ll find a steady stream of locals and tourists alike year-round making the population feel much larger.
The housing can be as varied as is its’ residence with intimate apartments and condos, cozy cottages, tri-story townhomes and sprawling waterfront homes. Much of the real estate was built in the 50’s and 60’s, with smaller footprints catering to tourists and snowbirds. But a lot has changed since then and there’s been plenty of new construction and revitalization across the city. Whatever you are looking for, it probably exists, but there is a price tag to go with it. Wilton Manors has been changing since the 90’s, and the desirable community its transformed in to has been a booming real estate market for a good portion of those last two decades.
Nature can also be enjoyed by both residence and tourists of Wilton Manors.
