An incorporated town in Palm Beach County and the Eastern-most town in Florida, Palm Beach is separated from West Palm Beach and Lake Worth by the Intracoastal Waterway.
Amongst the historical sights to be found in Palm Beach is the Breakers Hotel, formally the Palm Beach Inn, which sits on 140 acres of territory by the Atlantic Ocean. Other cultural landmarks include the Society of the Four Arts Gardens, a group of not-for-profit botanical gardens; the Mar-A-Lago, a renowned estate; the Flagler Museum, a 55-room mansion open to the public that has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places; and the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach, another not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the town.
Palm Beach is home to one of the most renowned shopping streets in the country. Worth Avenue, an upscale shopping district, stretches from Lake Worth to the Atlantic Ocean and houses a variety of high-end shops, including Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo and Brooks Brothers.
A slew of well-known chefs have opened restaurants in Palm Beach in order to cater to the high-end, luxurious and affluent crowd that defines the district.
Café Boulud, serving chef Daniel Boulud’s famous French fare, is certainly a standout. Nearby find Renato’s, an upscale Italian eatery that offers courtyard seats. More to the North, residents appreciate Chez Jean-Pierre Bistro, another elegant French eatery.
The Palm Beach International Airport, Amtrak, and Tri-Rail allow residents to travel into and out of town. Although taxis and cars are the most common mode of transport within the area, public transportation options include the Palm Tran and the Route 41 bus.
