Gilded Age glamour comes alive on this exclusive island.
Separated from the mainland by the Lake Worth Lagoon, the chic seaside town of Palm Beach, Florida, is famous worldwide. Its golden sands (and swanky shops and restaurants) have hosted aristocrats, socialites and celebrities — and it’s easy to see why. All it takes is a stroll down these palm-lined streets to fall in love with the climate, the architecture, Worth Avenue’s upscale boutiques and the Flagler Museum, the former home of the railroad tycoon who founded the city.

Just north of Palm Beach, Singer Island is home to swanky oceanfront condos and an expansive public beach and boardwalk as well as the town of Palm Beach Shores (population: 1,142), an outdoorsy residential area that’s been called one of the best-kept secrets in Florida. Visit for lazy days by the ocean, spa services and icy cocktails at Sailfish Marina. And, time permitting, spend an afternoon on nearby Peanut Island, an 80-acre tropical park accessed by water taxi.

West Palm Beach
Three bridges connect Palm Beach to West Palm Beach, a hipper, less traditional sister city that has international restaurants, touring Broadway shows, a world-class art museum and a wealth of chic shops and cafés along Antique Row on Federal Highway. For nightlife, head to the Square (formerly CityPlace) and nearby Clematis Street, the heart of downtown.
Dining, Shopping, Nightlife, Culture
Stretching from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Atlantic, this upscale shopping and residential area boasts chic hotels and historic estates as well as easy access to the island’s municipal beach. Frequently compared to Rodeo Drive, Worth Avenue features arcaded, Mediterranean-style boutiques, tiled fountains and elegant courtyards, which are linked by pedestrian-only vias designed in the early 1900s by famed architect Addison Mizner.
