Palm Beach


An oceanfront island separated from mainland Florida by the scenic Intracoastal Waterway and Lake Worth Lagoon, the legendary town of Palm Beach is truly unique unto itself. Its colorful history began in the late 1890s, when the town’s founding father, Henry Flagler, who, with John D. Rockefeller, started Standard Oil, declared it a “veritable paradise.” Flagler made Palm Beach accessible by extending his Florida East Coast Railway south from St. Augustine. Since then, members of America’s aristocracy, storied tycoons, and socialites have referred to Palm Beach as home. The year-round appeal of this island town is thanks to the impressive collection of gourmet restaurants, designer boutiques, and the shopper’s nirvana, world famous Worth Avenue, also known as the “Rodeo Drive of the East Coast.”
