Named for the many palm trees scattered across the island, Palm Beach has been an attraction for many of the world's wealthiest and most famous individuals since the early 1900's. Palm Beach, a mere 14 miles in length and 1/2 mile at its widest, offers an environment and lifestyle like no other island in the world.
The Town of Palm Beach offers the basics found in every community, local grocers, newspapers, community transportation, public and private school options, and a number of churches and temples representing most faiths. There is also an active Town Council and Town manager, a Police Department and Fire Department, local library, Chamber of Commerce and a Community Recreation Center. Residences vary from posh estates to quaint cottages and elegant condominiums.
The cultural atmosphere in the Palm Beaches is of a caliber surpassing many metropolitan areas. In Palm Beach alone, the cultural activities include symphonies, operas, and the theatre, with various performances at many fine facilities, museums and gardens as enchanting as the island itself. So, whether residing in Palm Beach or visiting its warm climate, its well established country clubs, its world renowned restaurants and shops, and peaceful, unpopulated beaches, you will see why Palm Beach continues to captivate all those who enter this island paradise.
