(BLACK PR WIRE) – When people consider vacationing in Florida, they often think of Fort Lauderdale’s beaches, Miami’s vibrant nightlife or Orlando’s glut of theme parks. West Palm Beach and greater Palm Beach County – about 70 miles north of Miami – offer all of these elements and more.
For your children or your inner child, there are animal parks, water parks, and nature and science centers to visit. There are museums, galleries and stores to fit every taste, whether you are interested in art, history, ceramics, ethnic heritage, old houses, horticulture, photography, or even chocolate! For those times you just want to sit back and enjoy the sun, the beaches are standing by. Palm Beach County has several public parks on the beach that offer fishing, boating, sporting, scuba diving, snorkeling and environmental education.
If shopping is your game, West Palm Beach is your playing field. Whether you are seeking the latest runway fashions or bargain souvenirs, the area has some of south Florida’s premier malls and shopping districts. One area not to miss is CityPlace, a massive outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment center in the heart of downtown.
Another downtown attraction is Clematis Street, an artsy district in the historical heart of West Palm Beach. Here you will find even more dining, shopping and entertainment options, as well as the city’s historical landmarks. The island city of Palm Beach is home to the famous Worth Avenue district, sometimes called the “Rodeo Drive of Florida.” If all of those aren’t enough, Delray Beach to the south and Palm Beach Gardens to the north offer their own hustle and bustle to explore.
You might also keep special dates in mind as you plan your trip to West Palm Beach. Regularly scheduled antique and collectibles shows, fairground expositions, street festivals and concerts take place annually. No matter what time of year it is, this city is never out of season.
