Palm Beach, Florida: Upscale Beach Town North of Boca Raton
Palm Beach has long been a favored retreat for America’s rich and famous—the Kennedys, Trumps, and Rockefellers have all spent winters here. The warm weather, beautiful beaches, and golf courses are a surefire cure for the winter blues, but there’s plenty to do all year round. Midtown Beach, a kid-friendly stretch of golden sand surrounded by glitzy estates, is an ideal spot for working on a tan or building a sandcastle.
On the western edge of the island, visit the Gilded Age at the Flagler Museum. It’s housed in the beautiful Whitehall Mansion, which was built in 1902. Walk through the halls, parlors, and ballrooms on a guided tour or stop in for afternoon tea in the glassed-in pavilion. Across the causeway, about 10 miles north of the resort, lies lively West Palm Beach. You can head to CityPlace, a stylish outdoor mall, for a host of dining and shopping options.
