This Florida hot spot is picturesque — and ready to party.

With its pretty palm-lined streets, West Palm Beach, Florida's busy downtown overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. Though the bustling city can’t claim a beach of its own, it remains a top vacation spot, with great restaurants, cultural attractions and nightlife. Roam trendy Northwood Village to browse galleries and shops, and don’t miss Clematis Street, the main downtown thoroughfare. Best of all, soft sand beaches and the clear, blue Atlantic are always just a five-minute drive away.
