DISCOVER PALM BEACH
“Where the necktie comes off and time changes.”
– Author John Ney
Palm Beach has long been an exclusive lifestyle destination for the wealthy. It’s safe, secure and jetting in and out is easy and nearby. It is approximately 75 miles (120 km) north of Miami and about 174 miles (260 km) south of Orlando. The Island is 13 miles (21 km) long and a quarter of a mile (402 m) wide and is accessed by one of three bridges from the mainland. The Town has its own police and fire rescue departments and is considered one of the most resort and family friendly locations in which to live or vacation.
There are roughly 2,400 single-family homes on the barrier Island with 84 direct oceanfront properties and approximately 190 on the lakefront. In the Estate Section the homes are on sizable parcels, many are architecturally significant and built in the 1920’s very reminiscent of the Flagler era. Worth Avenue, with its world famous boutiques, restaurants and beaches, is the town’s center and the properties are more cottage-like on smaller parcels. Beautiful condominiums grace both the ocean and lakefront promenades in this part of town. The Breakers Resort and Hotel marks the middle of the Island. Just to the north is referred to as mid-town, a commercial district with shops, restaurants, the supermarket and houses of worship. Between this area and the northern tip of the Island is referred to as the “north end” where many year-round families reside in traditional style neighborhoods. There are several excellent choices for public and private schools on the Island and in close proximity.
“I hope you’ll consider making Palm Beach your destination hideaway or permanent residence.”
