Visit West Palm Beach.
Deplane at Palm Beach International Airport and get started on your Sunshine State getaway. Hop on the train, call a shuttle, or schedule a taxi ride to get you on your way into the heart of the city. You may find yourself arriving at Palm Beach International Airport with parts beyond West Palm Beach on your itinerary—both the Treasure Coast and the Space Coast are immediately north of the area. If you find yourself in the mood for a day trip while you’re visiting, consider renting a car and taking a northbound drive to explore more of what Florida’s Atlantic Coast has to offer.
Make sure you spend some time in downtown West Palm Beach during your visit. The area is home to four distinct retail and entertainment districts, each of which offer a glimpse of the vibrant West Palm Beach community. Head to the Clematis Street Entertainment District for waterfront events and a charming trolley ride. If traveling by boat, this area offers parking for your seafaring vessel. For boutiques, cafes, and art galleries, find your way to Northwood Village. Or explore the wares of times past with a visit to Antique Row and find a treasure to take home.
Of course, one does not visit Florida and skip the beach—especially if your destination of choice is a place with “beach” in the name. Greater Palm Beach County is home to several locally beloved beaches along its coast. Surfers can paddle out at any one of the local beaches (unless otherwise posted) as long as they follow guidelines. Snorkelers can head to a handful of beaches in the area—including Ocean Inlet Park, Peanut Island, and Coral Cove Park—during guard-posted hours.
