My boyfriend and I are planning a long weekend in West Palm Beach next weekend (March 16-19) and would love some tips from locals or people who have travelled there before. We are from NY and this is our first time there and we are really excited! We will be staying at the Brazilian House (we won that in a contest!) and hear that it's a great martini town!
We would love info on restaurants, bars, nice beaches, shops, and maybe a loungey place to dance to cool music. I also have one day alone on Monday where I could explore a new area too. We are in our mid 30s and would love places that cater to our age group.
Any info would be GREATLY appreciated.
I have never heard of the Brazilian House....Would you be staying at the Brazilian Court Hotel or Bradley House, either way both are on Palm Beach. Very nice...quaint. Brazilian Court is only blocks from Worth Avenue which is worth at least a stroll up and down it, be sure to meander down the Via's. You can stop in to Taboo for lunch, dinner or drinks. It has been around forever. On the ocean near Worth Ave. is Charlies Crab. Up a couple of blocks from Brazilian Ct. on County Road is Hamburger Heaven. Great spot for a burger and you never know who you will see there. The beach is not the greatest in PB but that is the one that I go t0. You will want to go over to WPB to City Place. That is one of the most happening areas. There are alot of restaurants there and I have rarely been disappointed; Colombia Restaurant, Brewzies, Boston Seafood, Cheescake Factory, Blue Martini, etc. There is shopping & movico theatre! Another nightspot is Clematis street which is not far from City Place.
This weekend there was an article in the paper about young professionals and where they hang out. palmbeachpost.com/accent/con...
Day time you might also want to rent bikes and ride the bike trail in Palm Beach. You go behind alot of the mansions that are on the intracoastal waterway. A fun peek. Have fun!
go to the breakers for sunday brunch,you,ll love it,or even stay for a few nights in the hotel
I agree with whats been said.
I don't know that much about the night life. The Blue Martini at City Place in West Palm Beach does have dancing. Thats about all I know. Don't know if its "the place" to dance or not.
There is a casino ship that leaves from Palm Beach every day. I belive its called the Palm Beach Princess.
The main point I want to make is that Palm Beach and West Palm Beach are not that big. Its easy to find your away around. My suggestion is to ask someone at the hotel about things to do.
