“America’s First Resort Destination”, the Town of Palm Beach is an 18-mile-long barrier island, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the Palm Beach/Lake Worth Inlet, that showcases tree-lined streets and stately, secluded mansions. Standard Oil magnate, Henry Morrison Flagler, was instrumental in transforming the island into a playground for the wealthy, developing The Royal Poinciana and The Breakers hotels, and his palatial home “Whitehall”, which today stands as The Flagler Museum. Mr. Flagler and architect Addison Mizner built the famed, upscale shopping district of Worth Avenue, home to some of the most iconic designer brands in the world and quaint vias for dining.
Residents and visitors enjoy stunning beaches and a multitude of water sports, biking on the Lake Trail, sight-seeing, local galleries, and world-class golf and dining. Along with world-famous Worth Avenue, shoppers and diners will delight in the eclectic shops and restaurants of The Royal Poinciana Plaza. Adjacent to the Plaza is the historic Royal Poinciana Playhouse, currently under renovation, which will showcase art, film, theatre, dance, music, events, and a waterfront restaurant.
With close proximity to the Palm Beach International Airport, Palm Beach is easily accessible to visitors from around the world, and just a short drive over the bridge to West Palm Beach for downtown shopping and restaurants, as well as Broadway shows, ballet, and concerts at The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
