Lake Worth is located on the east coast of Florida, just south of West Palm Beach, and just north of Lantana, Delray Beach, and Boca Raton. It's not especially well-known for anything or anyone, being just another suburb. The neighborhoods range from very poor areas to very wealthy areas; from very commercial areas to run down areas that have been virtually abandoned by humanity.

Summers are characterized by mosquitoes, the smell of crushed mangoes (usually after having fallen into the street to be smashed by automobiles), and a hot, hot sun. Winters bring slightly fewer mosquitoes, and can sometimes get chilly... but never too cold.

Lake Worth is named after the body of water (Lake Worth) between it and Palm Beach island. It's part of a long strip of water, called the Intracoastal Waterway, that separates the mainland of Florida from a string of barrier islands. It's not so wide that you can't see the opposite shore; I imagine the average person could swim across without too much trouble.

I grew up in Lake Worth, and it's not so terrible a place. I just wish it would snow.
