ER Bradley's Saloon
Mostly a restaurant until about 10pm, at which point the music cranks up, the rum starts flowing, and the mixed-age crowd starts...
Biting into this Cuban restaurant's tender ropa vieja (shredded beef in a spicy sauce) is like stepping into Cuba, c 1955. Added bonus:...
Lonely Planet review
Plopped right off the northeastern corner of West Palm, Peanut Island was created in 1918 by dredging projects. Originally named Inlet Island, the spit was renamed for a peanut oil–shipping operation that failed in 1946. It has long been a popular spot for boaters to moor and party by day, and in 2005 the county plunked $13 million into island rehabilitation, resulting in Peanut Island Park, which includes a pier, an artificial reef and some pretty sweet campsites.
The island also features a blast shelter built in secret for President John F Kennedy shortly after his 1960 election. Kennedy never used the facility – other than as a jumping-off point for water skiing – but today, the Palm Beach Maritime Museum offers guided tours of the red-roofed facility.
There are no roads to the island. Visitors must either have their own boats or take the water taxi.
