The Breakers Palm Beach

If you don’t go to stay over night, you at least have to stop in and walk around. The Breakers Palm Beach is a landmark hotel that is famous worldwide. Built around 1926, The Breakers is a tribute to Henry Morrison Flagler and was built in an Italian Renaissance style. Guests and visitors will be in awe of the beautifully hand painted ceilings, Flemish tapestries, Venetian chandeliers and a king’s ransom of artwork and furnishings.

Café Boulud

Getting hungry? No trip to West Palm Beach is complete without a meal from Care Boulud. Cafe Boulud is a one-of-a-kind French-American restaurant with a breath taking dining area. Before diving into a meal, try one of their signature cocktails in their exquisite bar overlooking the patio. For dinner, you’ll enjoy flawlessly prepared meals, such as the squab tartine with mushroom duxelle, among a whole menu of exotic dishes.

 Northwood Village

Shopping is always a must no matter where you go, and West Palm is just the place to do it! Stop by Northwood Village for a variety of shops and restaurants.
