Things to do in West Palm Beach
So many things to do in West Palm Beach…so little time! We buzzed up for a day of fun at Elizabeth Ave, Grandview Public Market and Restoration Hardware…and that is just the tip of the iceberg…the restaurants, the shopping and lets just say it…the style vibe is very cool. Only about 20 minutes north of Boca Raton by the way!
Now if you have not been to Grandview Public Market be prepared because it is trendy and delightfully fun with vendors, food and community. At any given time you can find Tuesday Trivia events on the calendar and a local farmers market on Saturdays! You will love it!
Elizabeth Ave Station is for the creative in you and the creatives deliver as you will see when you browse around and see what might catch your eye…like a vintage vinyl record. They have a calendar full of events so check it out. These two locales are right next to each other so we just valeted and walked around. We absolutely love the “pink” wall…and yes we took a ton of pics in front of it! #selfiealert
After a fabulous lunch…check out the video above for details… we then buzzed over to Restoration Hardware at City Place the ultimate dreamy and upscale home decor home away from home that is glam when you need it and flat out down to earth too. We clinked our champagne glasses from the 4th floor rooftop and enjoyed the views of West Palm Beach from East to West and North to South. It was the perfect ending to a fun girls day out to celebrate some April birthdays!
Now keep in mind…West Palm Beach is on the west side of the Intracoastal Waterway across from Palm Beach where the iconic Breakers Palm Beach and shop ’till you drop Worth Avenue both exist. And yes…we visit Palm Beach too and love it!
The #SoooBoca gals have been known to spend a day casually buzzing around from shop to shop like Tiffany & Co., dropping in at various restaurants like Ta-Boo and having a late happy hour at the Chesterfield Palm Beach in the infamous Leopard Lounge and then taking a leisurely drive back to Boca via A1A.
ne thing we love is that we can also choose to fly out of Palm Beach International Airport due to its proximity to Boca, which, back in the day was pretty unique in its smallness and history think President Kennedy and Air Force One flying into PBI . We still feel a bit of that history and nostalgia ironically when we need to catch a flight from there as we did for a holiday weekend recently.
