FROM THE BEACHES TO THE 'GLADES
 
(2016 - Fall/Winter Issue)

Writer: .



Palm Beach County’s 5,957 square kilometres encompass a stunning diversity of things to experience. Along the Atlantic coast you’ll find 75 kilometres of world-class beaches and upscale downtowns such as Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Palm Beach, while the western edge of the county is dotted with rural communities along Lake Okeechobee, where fishing is outstanding. In between, there are 200 cultural attractions, 160 golf courses and a seasonal calendar bursting with exciting events.  

URBAN CENTRES

West Palm Beach is the county’s urban anchor, where nightlife thrives along Clematis Street and at CityPlace. Across the Intracoastal Waterway, Palm Beach—perhaps America’s swankiest address—has an array of shops, restaurants and artists’ studios nestled within leafy courtyards on Worth Avenue.

Boca Raton, with its Mizner Park shops and restaurants, is undergoing a true urban renaissance. Delray Beach has already experienced a stunning downtown revival, and Atlantic Avenue overflows with bistros, interesting shops and a non-stop parade of people at night.

Lake Worth’s downtown boasts trendy arts venues and street art. And North County has the vibrant towns of Jupiter on the beach and Palm Beach Gardens featuring the Gardens Mall.  

TAKE IT OUTDOORS

The Palm Beaches’ natural side shines at places like Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and the Okeeheelee Nature Center, where you’ll find wildlife, hike along nature trails and luxuriate in the beauty and silence.

The Palm Beach Food & Wine Fest in early December, followed by the Holiday Boat Parade, kick off a roster of exciting events. On December 20, the Marmot Boca Raton Bowl matches two great college football teams in Boca Raton. The colourful South Florida Fair runs from January 13–29. ArtPalmBeach and FOTOfusion also take place in January, which is when the Palm Beach International Polo Season begins.

In February, golfing legends compete at the Allianz Championship and the Honda Classic and the Delray Beach Open tennis competition takes place. Festival of the Arts Boca, from March 2–12, and the Delray Affair, from April 7–9, are two of South Florida’s signature cultural events. And SunFest, Florida’s largest waterfront music and art festival, showcases world-famous acts from May 3–7.
