Palm Beach may have all the glitz and glamour, but West Palm Beach is where the real fun is. For shopping, dining and entertainment, head to CityPlace, a lively outdoor mall designed around a central plaza. For more dining and nightlife options, check out Clematis Street, which turns into a party every Thursday night.
Immerse yourself in art at Florida's largest museum, the Norton Museum of Art. With a collection of over 7,000 works, the museum spans American and European masters and has an extensive Asian art collection. The Norton legacy continues at the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden, featuring over 100 of Ann's works sprinkled around the house, in her studio and on their lawn.
Of course, you can always hop over to Palm Beach to check out the opulent stores along Worth Avenue, stroll the municipal beach or gawk at the oceanfront mansions. But the best reason to cross the causeway is to see the Flagler Museum housed in his spectacular 1902 beaux-art manor, Whitehall Mansion.
