Palm Beach is stunning from any angle, but seeing it from the water is the perfect way to soak in the beauty of this pink paradise.
We’ve come across lots of weird and wonderful Florida facts, so we thought we’d share a few! You never know, these Florida facts may come in handy at a trivia night.
The Palm Beaches seamlessly blend the high-end labels of Worth Avenue and palatial estates of Billionaires Row with a wealth of laid-back beach charm. One secret to this balance has been keeping the destination’s grandiose offerings under wraps.

Flying into or out of Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)? You’re in luck! Three of the travel industry’s leading publications just recognized PBI as one of the best airports in the country. This easy-to-navigate facility was named the 8th Best Airport in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards, the 5th Best Medium Airport in the J.D. Power North America Airport Satisfaction Study, and the 8th Best Domestic Airport by Travel + Leisure.
