Lantana is a town in Palm Beach County, Florida. The population was 10,423 at the 2010 United States Census.

From 1974 until 1988, Lantana was home to the tradition of hosting the largest decorated Christmas Tree in the world. Every year, a huge tree would be shipped from the Pacific Northwest to Lantana by rail to the grounds of the National Enquirer, adjacent to the Florida East Coast Railway tracks. The event would attract thousands of visitors every night, and grew to be one of the most spectacular and celebrated holiday events in South Florida. This annual festivity ended in 1989 due to the sale of the National Enquirer following the death of founder Generoso Pope Jr. at age of 61 in October 1988.[7]

Today, Lantana covers 2.25 square miles (5.8 km2) and boasts a year round population of about 10,000 residents. During the winter, the population swells to around 14,000 residents.
