The city of Palm Beach in Florida has a special charisma. This mixture of turbulent energy and sophistication of the resort with history. While surf lovers catch the waves and modern art runs from museums to street walls, historic mansions flaunt Art Deco geometry as confidently as they did in the thirties.
The city pleases the eye with an elegant coastline with modern architecture, parks, hotels, shops. It offers a program to match itself - a diverse and eclectic, which will delight both beach enthusiasts and lovers of cultural and educational recreation. It should be immediately noted that Palm Beach and West Palm Beach are two absolutely separate cities, separated not only by a channel and administrative units by their own laws, orders and mayors.
A tour of American Butler will unite for you these two beautiful cities together.
Beach and city
The heart of Palm Beach is the street. Street life is in full swing, and you can enjoy the city around the clock: daytime excursions after sunset are replaced by live music and club life. There are festivals and fairs on the streets dedicated to graphics and chocolate, antiques and modern cinema, horse riding and music.
Where to walk in Palm and West Palm Beach
The most lively places are the historic and vibrant Clematis Street, Vors Avenue, which connects the lake of the same name to the Atlantic Ocean, Cityplace with the evening fountain show and the downtown area, which never sleeps. Outdoor enthusiasts and their children will be able to visit the McCarthy and Okahili zoological and botanical parks, the Ann Norton sculpture garden and the eponymous art museum, the maritime museums of natural science and the South Florida Aquarium.
The Grassi Waters Reserve is famous for walking paths on land and water, and interesting themed excursions. The reserve represents the flora and fauna of Florida, here you can ride a canoe or a motorboat.
Sport, sport, sport
Palm Beach - a real expanse for sports enthusiasts. Waves of the Atlantic Ocean attract surfers and kite surfers. Baseball fans can cheer on the teams of the Grapefruit League in the new Ballpark stadium, and golfers can visit the picturesque city golf club, the municipality's decoration since 1921.
In March, an annual exhibition is held in Palm Beach where yacht enthusiasts gather to sail. Here you can get acquainted with yachts and boats from leading manufacturers, purchase a variety of gear and just enjoy this large-scale event.
Rum and West Palm Beach rhythm
Florida is musical. In the evening, the dance floors of clubs are not empty, live music is held in high esteem. But in May, the city hosts a real music marathon: five days, three scenes, fifty famous groups. "You are in the tropics, get a cocktail, inhale the sea breeze and enjoy." In 2017, the public applauded Snoop Dogg, Ben Harper, Kaleo, Blink-182, Ziggy Marley and many others.
Plat du jour
In West Palm Beach you can make a round-the-world gastronomic journey without leaving the city. The restaurants offer dishes from European, Caribbean, Asian and Latin American cuisines, traditional steaks and hamburgers, as well as the freshest seafood. It’s not difficult to find vegetarian dishes - some restaurants, such as Joy Noodle or Howles, specialize in them.
