Before the establishment of Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway, Palm Beach was a largely unpopulated part of Lake Worth, to the north. When Flagler built his two magnificent hotels, The Breakers and The Royal Poinciana Hotel, Palm Beach became “the place to winter” for society people of the Gilded Age. West Palm Beach was developed right across the Lake Worth for service workers and the area flourished. Named for the coconut palm, which is coincidentally not native to Florida, Palm Beach became a mecca for the wealthy and remains so to this day.
Palm Beach is home to gorgeous historic mansions, legendary resorts, and
interesting landmarks to explore, including Henry Flagler’s Whitehall mansion, which is a sight to behold. Worth Avenue shopping is second only to Rodeo Drive, as is the exquisite dining. Golf affords amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, and biking is a pleasure as you cycle past the lakefront Addison Mizner mansions or the breathtaking landscaping along Royal Poinciana as you head to Sprinkles for ice cream. Catch the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival in the winter. A visit to Palm Beach makes everyone feel special.
