Palm Trees and Mimosas…

3 Jul

Over the bridge and through the palm tree-lined roads to Palm Beach we go…

Palm Beach is a land where socialites play and black tie events are plentiful. Restaurants are filled with locals lunching and the golf courses are reserved for the elite. If you are fortunate enough to mingle with the best of them your inbox is inundated with invites to posh parties and dinners are provided by top chefs. If not, read on…

During “season” (November-May) Palm Beach is abundant with pink and green clad residence, parking is scarce and there are RSVP lists to dine at chic restaurants. To avoid the crowds, visit the island when the locals head north for the summer. The streets are quite and you can enjoy the finer things in life.

Stay: Many of the area hotels offer great summer deals. From June 1st- September 30th the Breakers Palm Beach is offering rooms for $249.00 a night. Take advantage of the relaxing pool, fitness classes, and spa.

Play: There are many museums and boutiques around town. Visit the Norton Museum of Art over the bridge or stroll the streets of Worth Avenue. Feeling thrifty? The island has many thrift stores and who wouldn’t want barely worn Chanel or Prada!

Eat: Palm Beach has many great restaurants. If you are staying on the island try Nick and Johnnie’s, 207 Royal Poinciana Way or Hamburger Heaven, 314 South County Road. Going over the bridge, stop by Rocco’s Tacos on Clematis for made to order guacamole.

Wear: Flip-flops and Lilly Pulitzer! A classic combination of pink and green will have you looking like a local. And don’t wear just any pair of flip-flops. A pair of Jackie O inspired Jack Rogers will help you cruise the streets. Almost everything on the island is within walking distance and a chic shoe will help you get from point A to B in style.
