At Boca Riding Club, friendly instructors lead riders through lush greenery and teach riders of any skill level through both English- and Western-style riding lessons. Veteran instructors tailor each lesson to students' individual goals, working on basic riding skills, advanced techniques, or highway-merging tips. Riders spend around 80% of their lessons on the horse, with the remainder of their time devoted to saddling and after-ride care.
The tree-and-lake-dotted ranch at Boca Riding Club also hosts public group rides and children's summer-camp sessions. Under the guidance of instructor and manager Elizabeth Constantin, riders walk, trot, canter, or ride off into the sunset, depending on ability and experience filming Hollywood westerns.
Palm trees, grassy shrubs, and crimson blossoms flourish among the neatly manicured fairways of Cypress Creek Country Club’s golf course, designed by Robert von Hagge. The course debuted in 1964 but was recently renovated to keep up with contemporary standards. Five unique, tricky par-3 holes present a challenge to golfers of any level, and water hazards pop up throughout the course.
At the Don Law Golf Academy, you can take lessons from PGA and LPGA professionals to improve your swing or learn how to repurpose old 9-irons as fireplace pokers. Stop by the restaurant for a bite to eat after working up an appetite on the course, at a lesson, or at one of the range’s five hitting stations.
Palm Beach Paddleboards gets water riders up and running with lessons, tours, and a slate of boards and accessories.

While benefiting from both the full-body workout and the inherent peacefulness of paddling, adventurers can encounter members of the local eco system, such as manatees, turtles, and stingrays, and also scope out the grand waterfront homes and vacationing English castles sprawled throughout Palm Beach. Inside the store, vessel experts outfit adventurers with a slate of boards and accessories from brands such as Suplove, Tahoe, and Kialoa.
