The Town of Palm Beach is located on Palm Beach Island in Palm Beach County, Florida. Since all three are called Palm Beach, you have to be very specific when talking about the town, the barrier island, or the county. Regardless, it makes for a very attractive holiday destination just 65 miles north of Miami, with brilliant weather and a string of beaches on the 16-mile barrier island. Not to mention tourist attractions such as the Flagler Museum and the Breakers Hotel. Get a car for hire in Palm Beach so that you can drive along Florida’s Atlantic Coast and go beach hopping all the way to Miami.
You will find spectacular palm-lined beaches lined up one after the other in this part of the coast. To double the waterfront pleasure, the island is sandwiched between the Atlantic and the Intracoastal Waterway. Get a car for rent in Palm Beach and head to Midtown Beach on South Ocean Blvd, where Worth Ave meets the ocean. This is perhaps the best beach in town. Another beach where you can spend the day is Phipps Ocean Park at 2145 South Ocean Blvd. If you want more, Palm Beach County has 47 miles of beaches across 13 beach communities.
One of the major tourist hotspots in Palm Beach is Worth Avenue. Most sightseeing tours also include the Breakers Hotel, the Norton Museum of Art, and the Flagler Museum. Do not miss Mar-A-Lago, an upscale estate that has been used for presidential retreats. Mar-a-Lago is also famous as the site of Michael Jackson’s honeymoon with Lisa Marie Presley. Another attraction that you must visit in Palm Beach is Pan’s Garden, a botanical garden maintained by the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.
The premium choice would be a luxury stay at the legendary Breakers Hotel on 1, South County Road. A stay at the Four Seasons Resort at 2800 S Ocean Blvd would be just as luxurious. Two other popular choices include the Chesterfield Palm Beach at 363 Cocoanut Row, and the Palm Beach Historic Inn at 365 S County Rd.
There are simply too many destinations for you to cover around Palm Beach, and those on the way to Miami. You have the Atlantic coast beaches, barrier islands, the Intracoastal Waterway, and quite a few inland destinations too. To keep it simple and easy, book your car rental in Palm Beach right now and plan a coastal drive further north to Riviera Beach, North Palm Beach, and Juno Beach. If you head towards Fort Lauderdale and Miami instead, you can stop by at Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, and Boca Raton.
