About The Palm Beaches

The sun is shining. The palms are swaying in the breeze. The big fish are biting in the Atlantic. Welcome to a typical day in The Palm Beaches.

From sea captains to captains of industry, The Palm Beaches have welcomed visitors of every stripe from the start. That spirit of hospitality continues today. This is a place where the list of family activities, cultural attractions and outdoor adventures are as numerous as the memories you’ll make while you’re here. And if you prefer to do nothing at all? Let us show you to your beach cabana.

So jump in—the water’s fine. Scroll to explore things to do, places to visit, festivals to attend and so much more. We’re glad you’re here (and we know you will be, too).

Things to do in The Palm Beaches

Create new family memories when you get up close to 1,000-plus animals as you drive through Lion Country Safari or meet animals of the tropics at the Palm Beach Zoo. Scream at the top of your lungs when you experience that “zero-g feeling” riding Big Thunder at Rapids Water Park. After the thrills, be sure to let the family experience some Florida history and panoramic scenery at the historic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum.

For those that love to play in the sun, this is where you’ll find the most adventuresome things to do in Florida. Start the day watching the sun rise out of the Atlantic from peaceful Delray Beach atop your stand-up paddleboard. For some real adventure, get up close to gators on a Florida Everglades airboat tour with Airboat Rides West Palm Beach, or come face to face with moray eels while diving at Blue Heron Bridge, one of Florida’s best SCUBA diving sites. And no Florida getaway is complete without a round of golf in The Palm Beaches at one of more than 160 golf courses in Florida’s Golf Capital.

After hours, West Palm Beach attractions lure you out to let loose and play in the tropics. Hit the boutiques and national brand shops at CityPlace and then hop on the free trolley to Clematis Street, where the warm ocean air makes walking between The Palm Beaches’ best nightspots a breeze — literally. Enjoy a craft cocktail at the vintage-themed gastropub The Alchemist and then dance at the beach house-inspired club, Camelot.
