Our Day Trip to Palm Beach, Florida


Palm Beach, located on the east coast of Florida, is best known for its extravagant estates, upscale shopping, Palm trees, and beautiful beaches.




It is home to the rich and famous, including President Trump. Trumps “winter home” (including the Mar-a-Lago) is located water front on Ocean Boulevard along with other massive estates.





Our fist stop was the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. It is two-acres of lush tropical grounds with sculptures throughout. Read more about it in my post here.





After spending the morning at the gardens, we headed to Worth Avenue for some serious shopping.





Worth Avenue is a downtown area with upscale boutiques and restaurants.





Parking is a nightmare! I did notice valet parking carts in front of some of the stores, but we finally found parking about six blocks away.





I have to say, it was worth all of the trouble to get to it! Worth Avenue is beautiful!!!





And of course, my daughter had to shop in the Lilly Pulitzer store.




We had so much fun in Palm Beach! We were not able to stay in Palm Beach for the night, but we can not wait to go back and explore more of this beautiful city. We are looking at staying at The Colony Hotel, The Brazilian Court, or The Chesterfield for our return. They all are beautiful!




Location:

Palm Beach is located in southern Florida about 2 hours north of Miami and about 2 1/2 hours east of the FortMyers/Sanibel Island area.


Happy Travels!
