Palm Beach Attractions

Palm Beach attractions are some of the best you’ll find in all of South Florida.  This trendy town is no longer simply a place to get away from the cold.  It’s one of the most visited cities in America and its attractions are among the most acclaimed in the world. 

Historic Landmarks and Icons
One of the most recognized icons among the Palm Beach attractions is the majestic Breakers Hotel.  It began as the Palm Beach Inn when it was built in 1896.  After burning down several times, it was reconstructed and designed in Renaissance style architecture in 1926.  It’s now a replica of the Villa Medici in Rome. It’s located right on the beachfront and can be seen from anywhere in the city.  Its interior is nothing short of elegant and sophisticated.  As you walk through the lobbies to the courtyard, you’ll be impressed with the opulent décor.  The restaurants, cafes and nightclub on the grounds of the hotel offer upscale cuisine and wonderful ambience.  Even the pool area café serves the most delectable items for lunch. 

Tip:  Book a massage or treatment at the spa.  The experience is one you’ll never forget.  You’ll be pampered and cared for as if you were royalty.

Another historic landmark among the Palm Beach attractions is the famed Mar-A-Lago.  This was once the estate belonging to Marjorie Merriweather Post, wife of E.F. Hutton.  The estate still draws the wealthy as well as dignitaries who attend the famous American Red Cross Ball.  Its current owners are Donald and Ivanna Trump.  The 118 room mansion is elegant and a must see and if you can afford the membership fees it boasts one of the top golf courses in the state. 

Museums and Galleries
The Flagler Museum is not only impressive, it’s truly a masterpiece of architecture and design.  When you first see it you’ll think you’ve arrived at a fancy mansion.  When it was first completed, critics called it “more wonderful than any palace in Europe” and its style combines Spanish and Italian influences. Visitors can take a tour through the three stories and 55 furnished rooms.  Each one displays beautiful pieces from the beaux arts period.  The interior floors are made of marble and there’s heavy gilding throughout.  The murals and frescoes on the walls and ceiling are astounding and it remains one of the most visited Palm Beach attractions. 

Since 1870, the Wally Findlay Galleries have opened their doors to the people of Palm Beach.  They’re said to be the leading authority in the world of art.  The permanent exhibits focus on works by artists from the modern school of Roven. 

But if you’re looking for a different type of collection, the Norton museum of Art is truly at the top of the Palm Beach attractions.  The beautiful Neo-classic building displays more than 5,000 works from Europe and America.  Along the gallery walls you can delight your senses in paintings by Degas and Cezanne to name a few. 

Another must see of Palm Beach attractions is the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.  Its avante garde design is exquisite and sublime.  Visitors can enjoy performances of opera, the symphony and more.
