The southeastern coast of Florida is unique from many other regions in the United States. Starting at Key West all the way up to West Palm Beach, there is nothing but urban development. That’s about 230 miles of nothing but city, business, and commerce.
WEST PALM BEACH IS A UNIQUE METROPOLITAN CITY
Although people tend to think of South Florida as “Miami” or “Fort Lauderdale,” it’s the city that lies at the very northernmost point of the region’s urban expanse that deserves special mention. The city of West Palm Beach, which is the oldest city in the South Florida area (yes, older than Miami), boasts demographics and an economy that businesses can’t ignore. West Palm Beach virtual phone numbers can give your business access to this urban hub.
West Palm Beach’s 58 square miles are home to about 102,000 people, but that number is deceptive because the population doubles in size during the workday, and when you consider the neighboring areas in Palm Beach County, the population is as large as any major city in America. In fact, West Palm Beach is the county seat of Palm Beach County, which boasts 1.4 million people. That makes the area as populated as the sixth largest city in the United States.
DEMOGRAPHICS AND CULTURE ARE GREAT FOR BUSINESS
If you’re looking for a young population with lots of disposable income, this is it. The average age for a resident of West Palm Beach is only 40 years old. This is also an educated crowd for anyone with West Palm Beach virtual phone numbers to access — West Palm Beach has five universities within its city limits, and there are fourteen in all of Palm Beach County.
The vibrancy of the city is evidenced in West Palm Beach’s thriving nightlife, which includes shopping, clubs, and dining in both the Clematis Street/ downtown areas, as well as West Palm Beach’s City Place.
Culturally-based businesses should also take a look at West Palm, which is home to the Kravis Center, one of the largest performing arts theaters in the region that regularly attracts Broadway-quality shows and headlining musical events.
Any business looking to do business with tourists or those on vacation would do great with West Palm Beach virtual phone numbers. West Palm Beach spans inland almost to the everglades, but it also reaches to the furthest point east at the city’s famed beaches. The coastline and moderate coast temperatures attract tourists as well as music and art festivals, including Sunfest, the largest waterfront music festival in South Florida that features nationally known artists.
West Palm Beach boasts an unemployment rate lower than the United States average, and has job growth that is higher than the national average. With health care, trade, and professional services leading West Palm Beach’s employment sectors, and Florida’s 0% income tax, West Palm Beach’s job growth is estimated to hit close to 40% in the next ten years.
THE BENEFITS OF A VIRTUAL PHONE NUMBER
West Palm Beach virtual phone numbers allow you to be part of the community, without having to relocate your business or worry about setting up expensive remote offices in the area.
