Stroll the Lake Trail

The best way to start your morning is with a stroll down the waterfront Lake Trail in Palm Beach. Soak in the beautiful views of the West Palm Beach cityscape while enjoying a cool breeze. Along the trail, you will pass the incomparable Flagler Museum. It is definitely worth the stop. You will feel like you’ve stepped back in time to the Gilded Age when Palm Beach was being built. It is stunning. After your visit, continue your stroll on the Lake Trail to the Society of the Four Arts. Pack a picnic to enjoy amongst the beautiful sculptures on display in the gardens.

Go on an Everglades Adventure

It comes as no surprise that we included a trip to the Everglades on this list. A portion of this UNESCO World Heritage Site is located right in The Palm Beaches’ backyard. This network of wetlands is home to native wildlife including alligators, panthers, manatees and various species of birds, fish and reptiles. Charter a private airboat, like Airboat Rides West Palm Beach, to get an up close and personalized experience exploring this incredible ecosystem.

Climb the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

If you want to get your heart pumping, visit the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and climb the 105 steps to the top. This piece of Florida history is not only breathtaking when you are climbing but also is awe-inspiring once you see the views. The best time to go is for a Sunset Tour, when you can watch the sun dip below the horizon as the lighthouse turns on to illuminate the night sky. Arrive early for your tour to explore the lush grounds and enjoy the refreshing shade of a beautiful banyan tree.

Tour the Ale Trail via the Damn Good Beer Bus

Are you a fan of craft beer? Then make sure to set some time aside to explore the Ale Trail of the Palm Beaches. The Palm Beaches’ more than 20 craft breweries are always creating plenty of new brews to discover. The best way to enjoy the Ale Trail is with a trip on the Damn Good Beer Bus. They will design a custom tour to showcase breweries that will fit your tastes. Let them drive so you can enjoy!

Enjoy Some Friendly Competition

Getting your fill of professional sports is easy in The Palm Beaches if you time your honeymoon right. In February and March, you can catch a Major League Baseball Spring Training game at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter or Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach. Each January through April, you can don your Lilly Pulitzer for a polo match at the International Polo Club in Wellington and join in the traditional stomping of the divots, or enjoy their impeccable Sunday Champagne Brunch. Golf lovers won’t want to miss the Honda Classic in February; watch as the Bear Trap challenges pro after pro at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.

If you are looking to get in on the action, grab your clubs for some golfing fun at one of the more than 160 courses in The Palm Beaches or at West Palm Beach’s Drive Shack. Nearby, learn to play croquet at the National Croquet Center, the world’s largest dedicated croquet facility. Or, go more extreme with indoor axe throwing at Game of Axes in Boynton Beach.

Go on a Sea Turtle Walk

The Palm Beaches are the nesting groups for a variety of species of sea turtles from March 1 to October 31 each year. To learn about, and even observe, the nesting process, check out Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach. This sea turtle rescue center host turtle walks and other programs throughout the year to help educate guests about these beloved animals and the ocean. Depending on the time of year, turtle walk tours will be led down to the beach to witness the egg-laying process or hatching of the sea turtles. It’s absolutely unforgettable, so make sure to reserve your spot in advance.

Explore from the Water

No trip to The Palm Beaches would be complete without hopping on a boat to explore the expansive waterways. For the more casual boater, step aboard Visit Palm Beach’s Hakuna Matata Catamaran for a sunset sail down the Intracoastal Waterway. If you are more adventurous, charter a fishing boat and let expert captains and anglers guide you to the big one. You really can’t go wrong with whichever you choose.   There are so many fun activities to do during your honeymoon in The Palm Beaches. Whether you want to relax beachside or go exploring, there is bound to be something for both you and your spouse to enjoy together.
