Introducing holidays to Palm Beach
When you’re visiting Florida, the Sunshine State, you almost certainly want to spend some time on a beach. What better way is there to do that than take your holidays to Palm Beach?
The beautiful county is full of stunning beaches, as well as fabulous parks, museums and beautiful towns. It’s the perfect destination for a relaxing and cultural holiday in the beautiful Florida.
The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is a must-see for anybody interested in Florida’s history, and for people who want to have a view from the top of the 150ft tall lighthouse! Swimming with dolphins is said to be one of the things you have to do before you die, so why not do it on your Palm beach area holiday? There are a range of companies that can organise a trip for you.
Life’s a Beach
Unsurprisingly, the area is full of beaches! One of the best is John D MacArthur Beach, which is in the beautiful John D. MacArthur Beach Park, a nature reserve on Singer Island. There’s a small fee to get in, but it’s really unspoilt and the perfect place for a lazy day! If you want something with a few more amenities, most of the towns and cities have a beach of their own! Check out Carlin Park in Jupiter or Loggerhead Park in Juno Beach.
There are quite a few private beaches in the area which you will have to pay a nominal fee to gain entry to, but these are generally the quietest and most unspoilt of Florida’s beaches. The John D. MacArthur Beach Park to the north of Singer Island is both a spectacular natural park and one of the most peaceful and beautiful beaches you could hope to sunbathe on!
Of course, there are cheap beaches in almost every town in the area. Whether you’re in Jupiter, Worth Lake, Tequesta or Palm Beach itself, there are numerous beaches to visit and most of them are well attended and secure. There’s almost always the option to hire out a jet ski or a kayak – and even to take guided kayak tours around the amazing coastline!
There are some great restaurants in the Palm Beach area, and they can cater to all budgets! If you’re feeling flush, check out Ta-boo on Worth Avenue for a fantastic view and traditional American Cuisine. For a late night out, check out Club Y for some great tunes, though be aware that the dress code is smart-casual. For more variety, check out Clematis Street in West Palm Beach for a range of different great pubs and bars.
There’s almost too much to see to fit into one holiday to the area. If you don’t want to spend all of your time on the beaches or in the beautiful parks, the museums ought to keep you busy enough – from the South Florida Science Museum, a great day out for the kids, to the Flagler Museum, a celebration of the ‘Gilded Age’ from 1865-1929.
Action and Adventure
If you’re feeling active and want to check out the incredible Florida landscape, there’s a fabulous Cycling Trail on Singer Island which runs from the beautiful John D. MacArthur Beach Park to the open and airy Ocean Reef County Park in the south. Most of the beaches in the area have boat hire available, as well as the opportunity to do some great water sports activities. Learning to dive is always a popular choice!
If museums aren’t for you, why not spend some of your holidays enjoying the amazing creative spirit of South Florida? There are a host of great theatres and concert venues, ranging from the Opera to the more contemporary Kravis Centre for the Performing Arts.
