Introducing Palm Beach
The third-wealthiest city in America, Palm Beach looks every inch the playground for the rich and famous that it is. Palatial Greco-Roman mansions line the shore, Bentleys and Porsches cruise the wide avenues of downtown, streets look clean enough to eat off. Life here revolves around charity balls, Beverly Hills–style shopping and wine-soaked three-hour lunches. Though all the bling may feel a bit intimidating, fear not – much of Palm Beach is within the reach of even the brokest budget traveler. Stroll along the truly gold Gold Coast beach, ogle the massive gated compounds on A1A or window-shop in uber-ritzy Worth Ave – all free.
