Jetsetters like to see and be seen. Going to concerts, live theater, nightclubs and nice restaurants is how you like to spend your free time. Traditional yet fashionable, you’re not afraid to indulge– and there’s plenty in The Palm Beaches to match your style. Take a look.
Tour the Flagler Museum for a peek into Palm Beach history and Gilded Age glamour courtesy of Florida’s visionary developer, Henry Morrison Flagler. Constructed in 1902, the Flagler Museum began as a winter estate—called Whitehall, Flagler’s wedding present to his third wife—and today stands as a National Historic Landmark with guided tours, exhibitions and special programs. Combine a museum tour with a stroll or bike ride down the Palm Beach Lake Trail, which sidles up to the Intracoastal Waterway and extends north and south from the museum. The palm-lined path is ideal for a bit of al fresco exercise served with a side of Palm Beach’s most impressive estates.

In the summer months, join a sunset Sushi & Stroll event for food trucks and a taiko drumming performance.
