West Palm Beach’s seaside location is a major factor in its popularity as a vacation destination. Decks and docks West Palm Beach are perfect for setting off on a relaxing sail or fishing trip. Once you return to shore, there are also many interesting things to see and do on land. Here are a few West Palm Beach attractions that you should make time for on your trip.
- FITTEAM Ballpark
If you’re a baseball fan, you should try to plan your trip to West Palm Beach for the spring. Two Major League Baseball teams, the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros, do their spring training at the new FITTEAM Ballpark facility. If there are members of your family or traveling party who are not interested in baseball, never fear. There are also entertainment complexes nearby offering other activities, many of them family-friendly.
- Mounts Botanical Garden
Spanning 14 acres and including a reflection pond, butterfly garden, and a global collection of tropical and subtropical plants, Mounts Botanical Garden feels like another world. Nevertheless, it is conveniently located near the Palm Beach International Airport. The attraction does not charge an admission fee but does suggest a reasonable $5 donation, making this a budget-friendly option.
- Norton Museum of Art
This museum boasts an impressive collection that includes ancient Chinese artifacts made of bronze and jade as well as European and American masterpieces of sculpture and painting from the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum itself dates back to 1941.
- Antique Row
You may prefer to find an old work of art or curio that you can take back home with you. In that case, you should head to Antique Row, a collection of over 50 specialty shops and antique stores. You’ll find art deco and mid-century furnishings alongside decorative arts dating all the way back to the 17th century, before the United States was even a country.
In addition to these attractions, West Palm Beach is also home to local boutiques and unique dining opportunities.
