CHECK IN

Wake up to the sound of crashing waves and swaying palm trees when you stay at the incomparable Breakers Palm Beach. It’s quintessential Palm Beach with a storied history (founded in 1896), opulent design and impeccable service. Relax on your room’s balcony overlooking the glistening Atlantic Ocean while enjoying some delicious room service. Can’t get more romantic than that!

DAY ONE

The Palm Beaches boast some of the most beautiful sunrises in the world. Wake up early and head to Lake Worth Beach to watch the sunrise from the iconic pier. While on the pier, make sure to visit Benny’s on the Beach. This outdoor, casual eatery has been a delectable staple of the pier for more than 30 years and their menu will have you wanting to come back every day.

After breakfast, make your way to the Eau Palm Beach Resort’s spa for a decadent couple’s massage in one of their incredible private garden villas with a beautiful secret garden. Have a hand-drawn bath under the blue skies in total privacy to complement the spa treatment. After, relax by the incredible waterfall in the Self-Centered Garden and enjoy a refreshing cocktail. Head over to Breeze Ocean Kitchen for an al fresco lunch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean while not having to leave the Eau. 

Explore the extraordinary gardens in Palm Beach for the afternoon. Pan’s Garden at the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach is an incredible garden showcasing over 300 species of native trees, plants and flowers. Continue your tour with the stunning Society of the Four Arts gardens. A botanical garden and sculpture garden provide an unforgettable oasis through artwork, floral paths and water features. 

Just steps away from the Society of the Four Arts is the Lake Trail. This 5-mile trail runs alongside the Intracoastal and boasts some of the most breathtaking views of the West Palm Beach cityscape. It’s a wonderful spot to watch the sunset.

In the evening check out Art After Dark at the Norton Museum of Art. This fun event takes place every Friday night, mixing the incredible art on display at the museum with live music, film screenings, workshops and more. It’s a great way to unwind after a wonderful day.

DAY TWO

Continue exploring The Palm Beaches by heading to the south county. Farmer’s Table in Boca Raton offers an incredible brunch menu. They also place an emphasis on working with eco-conscience purveyors and utilizing environmentally friendly practices. So, it truly is “feel-good food.”

One of the unique and romantic features in Boca is the vintage carousel at Sugar Sand Park. The beautiful carousel is nestled under the shade of trees — perfect for a ride any time of day.

Take a drive a little north to Delray Beach. This incredible town is filled with so much to do. Stroll down The Ave hand-in-hand while you pop into shops, sip on Deke’s coffee and even stop into the Silverball Retro Arcade for some friendly pinball competition. Don’t miss the Pineapple Grove Arts District, with all its public art displays and galleries.

When you start getting hungry, visit the Delray Beach Market. It’s the largest food hall in Florida and offers an array of options to tickle your fancy. There’s always some type of event going on at the Market as well — from happy hours to classes to live music. Check out their event calendar to join in on the fun. 

No trip to The Palm Beaches is complete without getting on the water. At Visit Palm Beach, rent a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard and explore the inlets along the Intracoastal. The views from the water are something you’ll never forget. Plus, you might even get to see a manatee!

After your time on the water, wash up and grab a delicious meal at Buccan. This Palm Beach staple has some of the best food around. Chef and owner Clay Conley is a James Beard Award nominee and brings his flair to the delightful menu. Consider ordering a few dishes and sharing them tapas-style to enjoy as much as you can.

DAY THREE

Journey to north Palm Beach County today by starting at Jupiter Donuts. Forty-plus flavors of handmade donuts are made fresh daily and once they’re gone, they’re gone! With a few locations throughout Palm Beach County, don't miss this treat. 

One of the best ways to spend your morning is to visit Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach. Palm Beach County is home to various species of sea turtles, with the sandy beaches being the perfect location for laying their eggs. At Loggerhead, sick and injured sea turtles are rehabilitated and released back to the wild. They also monitor nests and assist hatchlings with getting to the ocean.

For the most epic view for lunch, Charlie & Joe’s at Love Street is a great choice. There are four different and incredible restaurants with varying cuisines from which to pick. All boast an incredible view of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, so you can’t go wrong!

After looking at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse during lunch, why not climb it? Explore the beautiful grounds surrounding the lighthouse, including a Banyan tree that’s more than 85 years old. The branches of the tree stretch out over the wooden deck that was built over the foundation of the original light keeper’s house. Join the Sunset Tour and head up the winding staircase to take in the spectacular views from atop this piece of Palm Beach history. 

Later, enjoy a mouthwatering dinner at Café Chardonnay in Palm Beach Gardens. This unassuming restaurant boasts big flavors and an incredible wine list. Chef Frank Eucalitto takes immense care to work with local farmers to build the menu. Make sure to leave room for one of their delicious desserts.

Three days in The Palm Beaches won’t feel like enough time since there’s so much do, but it’s the perfect spot for a romantic getaway.
