Visiting Palm Beach

So much more than sun and sand

Palm Beach has just celebrated its centenary but in that short period it has established itself as one of the world’s most popular resorts – with good reason.

World class shopping

Worth Avenue is the Rodeo Drive of Florida.   You’ll find over 250 shops, galleries and boutiques including Cartier, Chanel,  Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Jimmy Choo, Wally Findlay, Louis Vuitton, Tourneau, and Salvatore Ferragamo, to name but a few.  There’s also a wealth restaurants, cafes and bars.

Antique Row is a charming district with over 40 shops offering an impressive selection of antiques, fine and decorative arts, period deco and modern furnishings, and much more.  Clematis Street, the historical heart of downtown West Palm Beach, gives you a fascinating flavor of the area's colorful boutiques, nightclubs, live music, restaurants, antique shops and historical landmarks.

Come for the culture

The Flagler Museum and Whitehall is a spectacular beaux arts mansion from America’s gilded age that must not be missed.  The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts has a growing national and international reputation.  The Norton Museum of Art houses an exceptional collection of European, American, Chinese and Contemporary art. 

Music lovers can enjoy open air concerts at The Meyer Amphitheatre, while the Society of the Four Arts is Palm Beach's unique cultural destination for art exhibits, concerts, lectures, films, children's programs and more. The South Florida Fairgrounds hosts the South Florida Fair each January, as well as several concert, music & art fairs throughout the year.

Fun for all the family

The South Florida Science Museum includes hands-on science exhibits and a series of salt-water aquariums teeming with local sea life.  Palm Beach Zoo, a lush tropical habitat of 23 acres and home to over 1,400 animals, is also a great excursion.  Lion Country Safari is another great wildlife attraction with over 800 animals roaming free.

Golf, croquet, polo and much more besides

The resort includes Everglades Golf Course, the Breakers Ocean Golf Course and the Trump International Golf Club amongst a host of others.  It also boasts the largest croquet facility in the world, and The International Polo Club, one of the most beautiful venues for watching top class players compete in prestigious tournaments.

Palm Beach also makes a great base for exploring the maze of coastal waterways and enjoying the wealth of watersports that are on offer throughout the year – sailing, snorkeling, diving, fishing and kayaking.
