The City of West Palm Beach is the county seat of Palm Beach County. One of South Florida’s main cities, the neighborhood serves as a regional center of commerce that attracts a number of wealthy businessmen to set offices in the area.

The Neighborhood

West Palm Beach attributes much of its success as a real estate haven to the 1920 Florida Land Boom. It was during this time that the population grew rapidly along with the businesses and public services. This period also saw the construction of much of the city’s monumental structures.

The city suffered much when the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane hurt the area. The only time that the city saw progress was in the 1950s as many soldiers returned from war. The influx forced the city to expand to cover Military Trail and Lake Clarke Shores.

Today, the city offers an environment conducive for thriving businesses and growing families. West Palm Beach boasts of its palm tree-lined streets, quaint neighborhoods, chic shopping centers, scenic waterfront views and year-round outdoor festivals.

The nearest airport to the city is the Palm Beach International Airport. Residents can reach Mangonia Park and Miami via the Tri-Rail. Downtown West Palm Beach can be explored using the free trolley with routes going to City Place, Clematis and waterfront areas of West Palm Beach.

Intercity bus service is provided by the Greyhound Lines. The Palm Beach County municipal bus, Palm Tran also serves the city. Since West Palm Beach is a waterfront city, it is fitting for them to offer water taxis.

Along the northern tip of the community is the Port of Palm Beach.

Things To Do

West Palm Beach is home to many upscale shopping centers and sought after entertainment hubs like the Antique Row, Clematis Street, City Place and Northwood Village.

A city rich in culture, residents are often seen enjoying some live performances at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. For some taste of art, the Norton Museum of Art is home to several American, Chinese, European and various contemporary arts.

Aside from lounging at the waterfront beaches of the city, residents also enjoy bicycle rides, hiking and jogging along the western edge.

West Palm Beach boasts of epicurean meals served in fine dining restaurants.
