Explore the Loxahatchee River, Intracoastal Waterway and Lake Worth Lagoon by paddleboard, kayak or canoe. Underwater, there's a whole other world to discover, with marvelous snorkeling and diving in more than 150 artificial reefs. Or, beat the rush at our cultural hot spots; mornings are an enjoyable time to peruse the Norton Museum of Art, Ann Norton Sculpture GardensBoca Raton Museum of Art, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, and unique art galleries throughout the region.
 
Afternoon Adventures
It’s time for shopping, lunch...and some more shopping. We do the shopping thing quite well in The Palm Beaches! Buy for your family, friends and most importantly, your personal wardrobe. Go from the The Gardens Mall and PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens to Clematis Street, Rosemary Square and Palm Beach Outlets in West Palm Beach. If you’re a connoisseur of antiques, drop by Northwood Village and Antique Row. Be sure to hit the upscale Town Center at Boca Raton, Glades Road and Mizner Park in the Boca area.  And then there's Worth Avenue, world-famous for its luxury boutiques. When you want to snack, find plenty of delicious bistros in all these locales, because we take our food as seriously as our shopping.
 
On the Town 
The lights are dimming and the curtain is rising: Broadway-caliber shows fill the bill at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Maltz Jupiter Theatre and Wick Theatre & Costume Museum. The Crest Theatre at Old School Square in Delray Beach has become a popular destination for cabaret and other great performances.

After show time, it's your time to play. West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter have restaurants, bars and breweries galore. Downtown Lake Worth has local hangouts with funky, bohemian vibes. Atlantic Avenue and Pineapple Grove in Delray Beach have music, lounges and late-night eats. And for that tropical shirt, open-air waterside feeling: Boynton Harbor Marina.
