The 40-plus miles of spectacular beaches in South Florida’s Palm Beach County are warmed by the Atlantic Gulf Stream ocean current, which approaches this section of coast more closely than anywhere in the nation. The result is a moderate 78-degree average temperature year-round. Scores of tourists and retirees come here to enjoy the sun, sea and attendant wealth of leisure activities. 

Palm Beach, the 16-mile barrier island immediately off the coast of the county seat, West Palm Beach, was originally a winter retreat for the likes of the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers, and it remains a wealthy outpost to this day. Sunbathing, snorkeling and all other warm-water diversions are the area’s main draw, rivaled by the area’s top-notch golf courses. A growing number of theaters, galleries and museums, like the renovated Norton near downtown West Palm Beach, do their part to lure visitors out of the sun, and Worth Avenue, Palm Beach’s version of Rodeo Drive, is a shopper’s paradise.
