Where And What To Do In Palm Beach County, Florida
Florida just might be the best state in the country. Not only is everyone jealous of Florida’s weather in the wintertime, but there’s an endless supply of year-round activities and events going on to fit any personality. South Florida is a particular favorite region of the Sunshine State. Palm Beach County, which is home to celebrities like Michael Jordan, Tony Robbins, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods, is no exception. Following are some of the hottest things to do in Palm Beach County:
Whether you’re a native of Boca Raton or you’re just in town for a little while, you’ll find a ton of really fun things to do. If you’re in the mood for dinner and a show, you should check out iPic Theaters, which has plush seating and a complete menu to enhance your movie-going experience.
Nearby is Mizner Park, a lifestyle center shopping mall in downtown Boca, which is packed with fantastic shops, restaurants, and an amphitheater. Thanks to Florida’s enviable weather, you can enjoy a huge range of events throughout the year, such as the Boca Pumpkin Patch Festival in October, Annual Holiday Tree Lighting in November, and ongoing music festivals throughout the year. Another great event at Mizner is the fall-time Lunch on the Lawn series, which is packed with food trucks, background music, and even misting machines.
In 2012, Delray Beach was named the Most Fun Small Town in the USA, and it lives up to it. The most popular part of town is Atlantic Avenue, which is packed with upscale shops, great restaurants, more than 20 galleries, and a fun nightlife.
Throughout the year, experience the First Friday Art Walk, which is a mixture of art, relaxation, and education. From 6-9 p.m., you can take a self-guided tour where you can meet local artists.
In the summer, The Crest Theatre at Old School Square hosts the Cult Classic Film Series, where they encourage costumes and feature a full lobby bar and beer station. During the holidays, you’ll want to check out both the Holiday Boat Parade and (regular) Holiday Parade in December.
West Palm Beach
As one of the more well-known cities in Palm Beach County, West Palm Beach never runs out of fun things to do, such as the Palm Beach International Boat Show in March, SunFest in May, and Moonfest in October.
Clematis Street is a great spot for a lively nightlife because it is lined with restaurants, bars, and a waterfront area that’s complete with docks and a gorgeous fountain that kids like to run around in. In particular, you’ll want to go there on Thursday nights for their concert series in the park called Clematis By Night.
Just north of West Palm Beach is Lake Worth, a cute town full of lovely beaches, galleries, shops, and bed and breakfast spots. You can also enjoy getting an eco-tour at Kayak Lake Worth, which offers kayaking, paddle boarding, and canoeing. If you’re looking for a fun date night or family night out, go to Fun Depot, an amusement park that features a go-kart track, laser tag arena, batting cages, and 200 arcade games.
In February, you can have a very good time at the annual Street Painting Festival in downtown Lake Worth, which is a free event that features great music, restaurants, shops, and a bistro.
If you feel like a more relaxed time on the town, you’ll want to check out Stonzek Theatre at the Lake Worth Playhouse, where they show indie and foreign films every day for affordable admission (including matinee prices on Monday).
Since “beach” is in the name of this city, it makes sense that Boynton Beach would have 6.83 acres of beach at Gulfstream Park, where you can swim, fish, kayak, or do any other kind of watersport. This beautiful park is complete with a picnic area, children’s playground, shower/restroom facilities, and on-duty lifeguards. There are plenty of other excellent outdoor locales too, Mangrove Nature Park, which has a winding boardwalk that goes through a forest of Mangrove trees to provide a relaxing vibe as well as a great hiking spot. There’s also the Green Cay Wetlands, a 100-acre public nature preserve with a nature center and 1.5-mile boardwalk, all elevated above the wetlands.
Try out the Taste History Culinary Tours, a three- to four-hour walking tour that runs year-round on Saturdays hosted by the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History. It’s an unforgettable experience that features food samples, food culture, and food history.
Another great local attraction is Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market, which welcomes its visitors with hayrides, pony rides, craft sales, a corn maze, bouncy castle, and more each weekend.
While there are so many wonderful places to dine and shop, it’s important to be careful wherever you go. There are a surprising number of slips and falls that take place at restaurants, bars, department stores, and amusement parks. If one of these (or other) institutions is negligent about safety precautions, which result in your injury, Shiner Law Group can help get you compensation for your injuries.
Why Palm Beach County is the Place To Be
With 160 golf courses, 50 miles of beach shoreline, 81 parks, and a ton of celebrity sightings – like Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Tony Robbins, and Michael Jordan – it’s no surprise that people have flocked to Florida as residents and tourists alike.
