The Town of Palm Beach is an incorporated area of the Palm Beach County. It is located on the easternmost area of Florida, a 16-mile long barrier island separated by the Intracoastal Waterway from Lake Worth and West Palm Beach.

The Neighborhood

Also known as “The Island,” Palm Beach was originally developed by Henry Flagler as a resort within the Lake Worth neighborhood. Flagler, who created the Florida East Coast Railway, built the luxury hotels of Breakers Hotel and Royal Poinciana Hotel.

While coconut palm trees are not native to Florida, its existence in Palm Beach was a result of the Providencia shipwreck near Mar-a-Lago in 1878. Coconuts from the shipwreck were salvaged and replanted. The palm trees then thrived and created a lush landscape on the area that is now known as the Town of Palm Beach.

Palm Beach was incorporated on April 17, 1911. Today, the community has gracefully evolved to become one of the most developed towns in Florida.

The island community of Palm Beach has the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west. Palm Beach Shores occupies the northern boundary of the town.

The neighborhoods of City Place and Palm Beach Lakes are also on the west of the town.

Lake Avenue connects the town to the districts of Lake Worth and West Palm Beach, while the East Ocean Avenue brings residents to Lantana Heights.

Palm Beach International Airport is about 5 miles away from the town and takes approximately 10 minutes via the Lake View Avenue.

To connect with other neighboring cities of Miami, Amtrak and Tri-Rail located in West Palm Beach also serves Palm Beach residents.

Going around the city, the county-operated Palm Tran connects residents to the remainder of Palm Beach County.

The town has its own Police Department that provides law enforcement and keeps the residents safe.

The affluent town has been selected by Robb Report magazine as one of America’s Best Places to live for its strong community-oriented stability and abundance of pleasures.

Things To Do

While most residents prefer to move about in their private cars, many still use bicycles to explore many interesting places within the neighborhood. Lake Trail from the Royal Palm Way to the northern end of the island is a trail exclusive for pedestrians and bikes. Many locals on roller blades and bicycles flock the area especially in the afternoons. It is also popular for runner and dog walkers.

The tranquil community of Palm Beach is a favorite destination for individuals who prefer to have some enjoyable yet quiet time. Many of the interesting places in the town are greenery and historical landmarks. This includes Four Arts Garden, Breakers Hotel, Mar-a-Lago, Flagler Museum, Pan’s Garden, and Kapok Tree.

The town is home to the Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. The golf course was designed by the renowned golf course architect Dick Wilson and Joe Lee. It features a lush paspalum turf and two lakes with 18 holes from 81 to 211 yards.

Residents of Palm Beach can also make use of the tennis centers, Seaview Park and Phipps Ocean Park Tennis Centers. Both of them offer drop-in play, clinics, tournaments and programs that residents can avail.
