Stay in West Palm Beach
Situated on the mainland, West Palm Beach is separated from the island of Palm Beach by a narrow waterway called Lake Worth Lagoon. With its sunny palm-lined streets, stunning waterfront, gorgeous shops and buzzing nightlife, it’s an exciting place to stay. Throw in the beaches right on your doorstep and you’ve got the perfect base for your holiday.
West Palm Beach’s Great Choice of Hotels
With so much to attract visitors, it’s no surprise that the West Palm Beach area offers excellent accommodation. Look for resorts from big-name hotels located on Belvedere Road, which runs east-west through town. For something more intimate, choose a characterful B&B in the historic Grandview Heights district or a chic art and sculpture-filled boutique hotel in the waterfront El Cid district./p>
Shopping in West Palm Beach
If you like to shop then West Palm Beach may just be your idea of heaven. Drink in the old-world charm of the historic city centre as you browse the chic boutiques on Clematis Street. Then hop on a free trolley service to CityPlace, a stylish modern development with more than 100 stores as well as a cinema, bowling alley and even a comedy club.
Family Fun in West Palm Beach
Though the beach or the pool are the obvious family hot spots, there is plenty more here to keep little ones occupied. Take a walk on the wild side at Lion Country Safari or at Palm Beach Zoo and broaden their horizons at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium.
West Palm Beach after Dark
West Palm Beach is known for its near-constant sunshine, but it’s when the sun goes down that this city really comes alive. Clematis Street teems with activity come evening as its restaurants, bars and clubs fill up. Visit Clematis Street on a Thursday to enjoy free live music performances. It’s also well worth taking a stroll along the waterfront and dining in one of its many eateries there. Free events, including a monthly outdoor movie night, also take place down by the waterfront.
