The Best of Palm Beach: Five Must-Stop Places

Explore Palm Beach's James Beard-nominated restaurants, museums, designer shopping and festivals featuring celebrity chefs.


Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival

The guest appearances alone are a who’s who in culinary excellence at the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival. And if you’re lucky enough to be in the area in the winter, be sure to snag a ticket to meet chefs and taste divine dishes from the likes of Daniel Boulud, Robert Irvine, Stephanie Izard and Alon Shaya as they make their way throughout the island and county to share recipes that are dear to their hearts.

The Royal Poinciana Plaza

There’s shopping, and then there’s shopping. Against manicured lawns, serene fountains and myriad high-end brands and retailers, the outdoor shopping at The Royal Poinciana Plaza is an experience unto itself.

Henry’s Palm Beach

If you’re looking to leave The Breakers’s property, but not stray away from its incredible service, then take a quick drive or bike ride to Henry’s Palm Beach, an American-inspired bistro that serves a Mississippi mud pie big enough to share (but we wouldn’t fault you if you didn’t want to).

Flagler Museum

Henry Flagler’s opulent 75-room winter residence, Whitehall, has been transformed into the Flagler Museum, a national historic landmark that’s home to Flagler’s favorite items, including his famed Railcar No. 91.


Small plates with big flavors are the vibe at Buccan, where chef Clay Conley has been recognized by none other than the James Beard Foundation for his mouthwatering creations.
