Palm Beach sunrises are fantastic

Palm Beach has become a go-to spot for travelers, as it has something that every member of the family will enjoy. For those who want to appreciate the finer side of this Florida destination, there are countless five-star resorts, boutiques, and spas for ultimate relaxation. If you’re looking for a more active vacation, Palm Beach also offers unmatched hiking, biking, and boating. No matter the experience you wish to create, the beaches, fine restaurants, and rich history of the area will create memories to last a lifetime.

Consider adding these top 5 must-dos in Palm Beach for your next trip to Florida:

#1 Glide on the Famous Florida Everglades

Nature lovers and those with an affinity for the water will have a blast exploring the famous Florida Everglades while cruising on a high-speed airboat. As you coast, catch glimpses of the beautiful cypress forests and wildlife native to the state. View alligators, flamingos, and more with your knowledgeable guide, who will give you all the facts on the scenery that surrounds you. Splurge for a private tour for the five star treatment.

#2 Take a Stroll Down Worth Avenue

A trip to Palm Beach isn’t complete without a stroll down Worth Avenue. You’ll have a great time, whether you’re planning to bring home a souvenir from one of the many upscale shops and boutiques in this shopping mecca, or would like to simply browse the windows as you wander. When you’re exhausted from shopping, refuel at one of the various world-class restaurants located nearby.

#3 Snorkel with the Underwater Wildlife at Peanut Island

For those who’d rather spend time in the water than on it, take a trip to Peanut Island for a great snorkeling experience. The man made Peanut Island sits in the middle of the Port of Palm Beach, and offers visitors the opportunity to camp, hike, or enjoy a picnic by the water. The true draw, however, is the opportunity to snorkel alongside colorful fish, stingrays, sea turtles, manatees, and even small sharks. Once you’ve had your fill of the sea life, explore the historic side of the island, which features an underground bunker constructed during the Cold War under John F. Kennedy’s presidency.

#4 Relax on the Links with a Round of Golf

Palm Beach is a true haven for golf lovers, with countless high end courses to choose from. Whether you’re a pro out on the links, or an amateur just looking for some fun, you’ll have a great time trying your hand on picturesque courses such as those at the PGA National Golf Club. If your swing is not quite up to par, try to schedule a private lesson so you can still get in on Palm Beach golfing action.

#5 Explore Palm Beach’s Artistic Side

Those who appreciate both high end and street art alike will enjoy Palm Beach’s many artistic installations. A number of streets in the downtown West Palm Beach area feature vibrant murals that are sure to wow you as you roam. You can also browse the Four Arts Botanical Garden, packed with sculptures and fountains to view as you stroll through the gardens. If the performing arts are more your speed, catch a show at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, which showcases star performers in nationally recognized Broadway productions.
