West Palm Beach Vacations

Once the neglected sister city of glamorous Palm Beach, West Palm has finally emerged as an international destination of its own. Beginning in the early 90's, a major revitalization transformed the previously derelict downtown into one of South Florida's most prestigious hubs for luxury shopping, fine dining and nightlife. With an eclectic ... Read more
pioneering history, the spirit of eccentric Florida crackers can still be felt amongst the modern gleam of towering high rises and foreign sports cars. A year round warm climate and more golf courses than anywhere else in the United States have contributed to the city's reputation as a hedonistic playground for the well-to-do.

mid 70s (24C). While battling the crowds is normally something to avoid, this area has a pretty tolerable high season, in part because there are enough hotels to handle the spike, and also because the city is alive and buzzing with exciting activity, including the splashy Art Basel Miami Beach in December, during this time. The alternative would be to come between May and November when the weather is hot, reaching 90F (32C), and hurricanes are ever-looming.

West Palm Beach is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. As a Floridian myself I may be accused of having bias. But having traveled the world there is just something nice about West Palm Beach. It isn't as big as Miami but has a lot of the city appeal. I think it's a great place!

While we settle into the New Year and begin thinking about this year's logistics projects, many of us find ourselves drowning in a pile of spreadsheets alongside a mountain of research made up of frequently fragmented transport data which consists of much of last year's findings.

We took a day trip from Miami to see West Palm Beach. I guess those days there was no GPS and no smart phones. We just drove around aimlessly and got to see some nice houses near the beach. I must go back one day.

If you are looking for an exciting and different adventure you must try fishing at Peanut Island. This beautiful island is one of the favorite attractions for local boaters and fishermen. You can rent a catamaran, dock your boat and camp on the beach while enjoying this experience!

The perfect balance of tranquility and casual night-life. During the day, I spent my time at the beautiful inter-coastal beach or walking Clematis Ave. A lovely strip of restaurants and shops. My first stop each morning, being the craft coffee enthusiast I am, was getting my daily fix at one of the many local coffee shops. My favorite being Subculture coffee-order the Mocha Latte.

In the evening, there are delicious restaurants of choosing. Several have great handcrafted cocktail menus. My favorite was The Alchemist, an urban gastropub that has a unique selection of burgers. I ordered the slider sampler and was impressed.

If you would rather a heartier breakfast than just a above-average cuppa joe, try the brunch at The Breakers. This hotel is renown in South Florida for it's luxury landscape worthy for it's many booked weddings and events.

Other fun attractions that I enjoyed are the botanical garden which is FREE and so worth it. Just remember your bug spray. And the local amphitheater that hosts great artists, especially country musicians.

very high priced for living in the city.. But not bad near the beach. Excellent array of resturants, diners and fast food. Excellent malls and lots for shopping- high end stores. A lot of water front diners as well and boat access. Beautiful city. Airport as well. Lived here for 2 years near the beach and absolutely loved it. Traffic not as bad as Ft. Lauderdale
