Palm Beach, the fashionable destination in Florida

Friday, August 15, 2014

We know. Perhaps the first thing that you will come to mind when you think of Florida (USA) is Miami and Orlando, and suddenly, Fort Lauderdale. However, without discrediting how much they have to offer these cities, there is a destination in the south of the state that are worth discovering: Palm Beach.

We visited West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Palm Beach and Boca Raton, cities that have the perfect mix of a comfortable temperature, large resorts, malls, beaches, museums and gardens to walk. It is also the ideal place to shop. It is a relatively young area, as it was in the early twentieth century when the oil magnate and Henry Morrison Flagler railways decided to extend the rail line between Jacksonville and Key West. Flagler also built in the city of Palm Beach hotel with 1,100 rooms, which by 1894 was considered the structure of the world's largest wooden.

But this visionary did not stop there: two years after he built the Palm Beach Inn, which in 1901 was renamed The Breakers, today one of the most luxurious resorts in the area. One advantage for Colombian travelers is that since ending Easter to mid-October is low season in Palm Beach, so prices are greatly reduced. From November to early April is high season because Americans and Canadians tend to visit the county to escape the northern winter raging at that time.

Although it is a destination that offers luxury plans, only 30 percent of the hotels are sumptuous, while the remaining 70 have more affordable prices. Palm Beach can also be enjoyed without excessive budget. On this trip, in addition, we have a great partner and all the shots we take with a Samsung camera.

Day 1 Exploring the city center

Mall
We arrived in Miami at 2:30 pm. The journey to Palm Beach is about an hour. The first city we visited was Delray Beach. The best plan for the night is to go to the city center. Be sure to visit Atlantic Avenue, a street about five blocks away where you will find shops, restaurants and pubs to spend an entertaining evening. Full of lights and tables on the terraces of the restaurants, it's perfect for walking. One of the trendiest restaurants is Salt7, whose specialties are meat and sushi. Ask for input lamb chops, served with lemon glaze and oregano; a dish not to be missed. If art is your thing, you can go to Pineapple Grove Art District. There you will find galleries and studios where artists work.

Day 2 Shopping and Japanese garden

Jardin
If something tourists want when they go to Florida is to shop, and Palm Beach has ample places to do it. One of the most distinguished shopping centers The Gardens Mall is located in Palm Beach Gardens, with 160 stores. Interestingly, aside from the mall are luxury stores such as Gucci, Burberry and BCBG Max Azria, among others, and the other half less expensive as H & M, Forever21, GAP stores are located. In the afternoon, searching for tranquility and a place to rest in Delray Beach is a museum of 64,750 square feet that will make you feel as if you were in Japan garden. This is the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, the only museum in the southeastern United States devoted entirely to Japanese culture. Visitors have the chance to see six different styles of gardens and walking around a huge lake, tree-filled trails and appreciate plants like bamboo, waterfalls and home to the best Japanese style. The garden also features a beautiful bonsai collection. Finally you can stop by the Tea House, where demonstrations sado become a ritual for preparing Japanese green tea. Night falls, one of the best dining options is Clematis Street in West Palm Beach. It has a festive atmosphere that begins a park with a water fountain and trees full of lights and streets full of restaurants with cuisine ranging from Mexican to French. Every Thursday there is live music to enjoy the outdoors.

Day 3: More shopping and a museum

MuseoThe day begins with shopping for all budgets. Many said that what was missing were the outlets Palm Beach Miami and Orlando. Well now the tourists have the recently opened Palm Beach Outlets, located in West Palm Beach. There are brands like Calvin Klein, DKNY, Puma, among others, with discounts ranging up to 70 percent. Now, if you like the design and luxury jewelry, is a definite Worth Avenue, a street that has just celebrated its 100 years and houses the most exclusive and luxurious shops of the world, so we say the Rodeo Drive of Palm Beach. Amid palm trees on either side of the street, boutiques as Chanel, Jimmy Choo, Hermes and Tiffany & Co. are in the afternoon, the plan is cultural. It is impossible to leave without visiting the Palm Beach Flagler Museum, home to Henry Flagler built for his third wife and is now converted into a beautiful museum with a huge ballroom, a library, dining rooms, music rooms and a courtyard with a fountain in marble. They have a railway built in 1886 in Flagler mobilized to reach Palm Beach and began working on the land. The house is truly a work of art, with clean wooden floors and high ceilings hand painted. A combination of shopping and food you can live in City Place, West Palm Beach, a good plan to end the day. Mediterranean-style architecture, offers around 80 shops and restaurants. The good thing is that it is a place for all budgets, as is $ 15 in shirts from H & M, to a little more expensive clothing stores like Banana Republic. The same thing happens with food. You can eat a slice of pizza or visit finest Italian restaurants.

Day 4 exclusivity in Boca Raton
Resort
Boca Raton is one of the best malls in Florida, the Boca Raton Town Center Mall. It is among the few malls that have the same space with department stores such as Bloomingdale's, Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue. There is an exquisite place in this city: Mizner Park, the junction between restaurants, shopping, entertainment and culture. It is a street lined with palm trees and buildings painted in a pale pink which hosts jazz bars, furniture stores, cooking, clothes, a cinema in the pillows that give visitors a large and luxurious residences. In September, celebrates one of its most popular events, Tastemakers, two nights full of food, cocktails and fun, all outdoors.
