In March of 2002, two friends and I flew down to Florida for a relaxing week in West Palm Beach. Having been to other places in Florida (Orlando, Marco Island), I was excited to see what this city had to offer. The weather wasn’t as warm as we had hoped it would be, so we couldn’t lay on the beach all day. While this may seem like a bad thing (I have been known to be quite the beach bum!), it really gave us a chance to explore the city and surrounding areas!
One of our first stops was at The Breakers, a historic resort on the shores of Palm Beach. We met up with a family friend who was a guest at the hotel and enjoyed a delicious lunch at one of the restaurants. We then walked the grounds to see the magnificent pools and landscaping.
Another day, we walked Worth Avenue – a street with high-end shops like Chanel, Cartier, Salvatore Ferragamo and Louis Vuitton. Here you’ll find everything from clothes and jewelry to shoes and antiques. Even though I didn’t buy anything, it was fun to window shop and browse (and get some good exercise in too!).
On our last night in Florida, we headed over to Sunrise – a city about an hour away – to see Billy Joel and Elton John in their Face 2 Face Tour. It was a great way to end a low-key week with friends.
This week on the RCI Blog, we’ll share stories and photos from RCI subscribing members who have been to Palm Beach. Be sure to check back!
