It is also considered one of the richest cities in Florida, with the average income of families living there being 150 thousand dollars a year. That’s why the city is so organized, clean, and has amazing buildings and courtyards. It has often been voted the best city to live in the entire country! Many famous people from the United States government live or have vacation homes there, because the place is really nice.
What to do at Palm Beach
In Palm Beach, you will see dozens of huge mansions! A very beautiful area to walk around is Worth Avenue, which has amazing fountains and super luxurious decor, where people walk around and shop (the stores in malls and avenues tend to be luxury brands). The most famous and beautiful courtyards there are Via Parigi and Via Mizner. There is also Four Arts Gardens, an art gallery with gardens and trees of all kinds.
Another Palm Beach tourist spot is the White Hall Museum, which is like the city’s White House. It’s a huge, luxurious house, all white, with articles and paintings that talk about the history and culture of Palm Beach. Another cool place to visit is the Breakers Hotel, which was the first major construction in Palm Beach. It is a luxury hotel with more than 2,000 rooms and great architecture, built by the famous Henry Flager. It is one of the main tourist attractions in the city.
Cycling in Palm Beach
For those who like to ride a bike, Palm Beach has the Bicycle Trail, which is an exclusive lane for cyclists, full of trees and passing through the incredible houses and mansions of the city. It’s worth renting a bike and riding around there. Close to Palm Beach, there is another very beautiful region of Florida called Boca Raton, that is closer to Miami. You can visit both on the same day, if you want to.
Palm Beach restaurants
Palm Beach is full of really cool and tasty restaurants, and it’s worth exploring and getting to know as many as you like. Our tips are Café Boulud (which has a fixed menu system: you pay some dollars and get 3 plates, and it only works for lunch); the Regional Kitchen & Public House (it has Mediterranean cuisine, sandwiches and good drinks); the Jardin (with a menu inspired by Israeli cuisine, and works for dinner and lunch); and the Seafood Bar (which has a beautiful view and serves good drinks and seafood).
Loggerhead Marine Life Center at Palm Beach
The Loggerhead Marine Life Center is an excellent environmental tour tip to take in Palm Beach, especially if you’re travelling with kids. It is an ocean conservation organization and a sea turtle rehabilitation hospital, with tours for children and adults where they have information and lessons about the animals. It is possible to see turtles that are undergoing treatment and some being released, if you are lucky. It’s a very different tour, and it’s worth it.
Clematis Street at Palm Beach
Our last tip is Clematis Street, which is in West Palm Beach. It’s the hottest street in town both day and night, and you need to stop by when visiting Palm Beach, whatever time you prefer. There you will find restaurants, bars, some nightclubs and the Green Market, a market that takes place on the street on weekends. It is also worth observing the graffiti on some street walls.
Miami Beach Tips
Miami has the most beautiful beaches in Florida, so make a good plan to get to know all of them. They are practically a free trip (you will only spend to eat). It’s nice to stop by Walmart or Target supermarkets before going to any beach, and buy several snacks, soda, water and food to take away (so you don’t have to buy them at the beach stalls, which sell everything for much more).
Another cool tip to save money on your trip to Miami is to buy an umbrella and a large beach towel, which are very cheap items in supermarkets, because if you are going to rent one of them on the beaches of Miami, you will pay more than US$ 20 just for a chair and an umbrella, for a day. With this money, you can purchase these items to use throughout the trip. It is a good economy!
Without a doubt, the best way to visit Florida’s east coast beaches is with a car. Car rental companies in Florida have great prices, the roads are very good to drive, and tolls are not expensive (you can see more about them in our article Sunpass, tolls and express lanes in Miami and Orlando. And, if you want, for a few dollars more you can get a more luxury car, and have the experience of driving it on a trip along the Florida highways.
