Product and Locations Mentions
Home of The Breakers, this world-renowned hotel is a hot spot to Palm Beach. Founded in the 1890s by none other than Henry Flager, it was the beginning of the trend of grand, gorgeous properties on the island. It was reconstructed after fires in 1903 and 1925. It is one of the most prestigious hotels in the state and full of history and unapologetic luxury.
There is a free trolly you can take all around town. We really used it as a way to see everything in the area. Be sure to get a map because there are a few lines and you can easily end up on the wrong trolly. The area is loaded with unique architecture, sculptures, and murals. We took the trolly to Rosemary square where you will find arts, shopping, dining, and the coolest ice cream shop, Sloans.
We stayed in a little more affordable hotel, the Hyatt Place. We absolutely loved it. It has 2 indoor plunge pools, a bar, a complimentary breakfast that is actually quite large with a variety of things to choose from, a coffee bar, snack bar, coffee and tea in the lobby, and a 1.3-mile trip over the bridge. We took an Uber there and walked back. The river walk is gorgeous.
We ate at a place called Hot Pie Pizza. It was a really cute place that made you feel like you stepped through a portal to New York. We especially loved the old-style feel of the building and the pizza was perfect. We stumbled into a place called Mama Bella’s Market. It was such a cool place. They had a market bar that had all fresh prepared food as well as shelves and shelves of market foods. It is a 3,750-square-foot culinary emporium carries curated collection of gourmet foods, spices, and imported artisanal cuisine and ingredients. Theres a contemporary café and bar, European-inspired gourmet market and deli, international wines, specialty stone pizzas.
Sit out on the waterfront at the Rafiki Tiki Bar & Grill. Located by the Manatee Lagoon, its amazing views and an atmosphere combined with its incredible food, make it a perfect Palm Beach stop. Also, their coconut shrimp is to die for.
Rocco’s Tacos is not specific to Palm Beach, but they’re always worth a visit. Down here, you need to make sure you get a reservation because they fill up quickly. With their table side guacamole and our mix for their margaritas made in-house paired with their world-famous tacos, you cannot go wrong with this choice.
For my son’s 9th birthday, we ventured down to Fun Depot. We rode go-karts, played laser tag, and an endless array of arcade and video games. Be sure to check out their daily deals because they are sure to save you money.
You should be sure to check out Grandview Market. This place is the culinary home for about 12 chefs. If you’re looking for unique and special cuisine, this is the place.
No trip is complete without a science center visit. Cox Science Center and Aquarium is a fun little with a splash area and outside physics experience. Stop by the concession stand for a nice treat. There is also a full miniature golf course and picnic area by a park full of ducks! It really makes a fun visit and is great for all ages.
We attended a lagoon-side chat at Manatee Lagoon. Sit and watch for the manatee and enjoy the fresh sea air. They also have a fantastic education center.
We took a short drive to Jupiter from Palm Beach to visit the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum. Take a historic tour with a guide or an audio tour and traverse to the top of the lighthouse.
