Palm Beach, FL
Known for its small-town appeal, scenic location, and high quality of life, Palm Beach, FL or just “the Island” as it is also often called (because it is surrounded by the Intracoastal Waterway), is a paradise for its permanent and seasonal residents.
Although tourists have been flocking to the area since before 1880, drawn by Palm Beach’s innate beauty, the town was only incorporated 1911.

- Nature lovers will delight in the observing the various flora and fauna in Palm Beach’s parks. The Four Arts Botanical Gardens, a demonstration garden built to showcase the beautiful tropical plants native to South Florida, is one great example. Then there’s Pan’s Garden, a green space named after the flute-playing Greek god whose likeness stands at the entrance to the park.
