Other Places To Visit In West Palm Beach

Palm Beach Outlets 

what is better than shopping at a huge mall? Shopping at high-end stores at outlet center prices, of course. The Palm Beach Outlets are amongst shopping aficionados’ favorites. Its vast selection of stores has everything you can possibly dream of…and then some.

Kravis Center of Performing Arts

If you dream of going to Broadway shows, the Kravis Center is probably the closest thing to it you will find in Florida. They have big-name shows available year-round and numerous other performances every weekend. Additionally, the performing center is available for fundraising events, mentorship programs, and community education in the performing arts.

Community Events 

The thing about West Palm Beach is that there are different forms of entertainment going on at all times. From 5K runs to farmer’s markets featuring exotic fruits year-round, not to mention the countless fundraisers, social events, and pop-up events available every weekend. If you’re ever short on plans, just check the community page on the West Palm Beach website and head over to the city’s social calendar.

Mccarthys Wildlife Sanctuary 

If wildlife is your thing, head over to Mccarthys for a look into the Florida wildlife. This wildlife sanctuary ranks #1 in the highest-rated attractions in West Palm Beach. Make a day of it with the family, or just use it as a hiking opportunity and head over solo. Either way, this is a must-see in WPB.

West Palm Beach Food Tours 

As cheesy as the idea of tours may sound, we promise this one is a local favorite for a reason. Highly rated across all internet boards, this tour promises a three-hour tour hosted by a local foodie that will introduce you to some of the best dining in West Palm Beach. This is a great way to make friends or bond with your current ones.

Cycle Party

You’ve heard of bus parties, but here in West Palm Beach, we do it a little differently. Enter Cycle parties. This 2-hour bike ride is a “bar-crawl” of sorts. The tour takes you through some of the most fun bars in the city, and for an additional fee, you can get a specialty tour with a scavenger hunt included. Each party bike accommodates a total of sixteen people, and you can either choose to book the whole bike or an individual seat.

Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens  

If you ever hear the term “sculpture gardens” in West Palm Beach, this is what they’re talking about. The sculptures here are unique and a great way to spend your day admiring. The gardens are also home to other fabulous art exhibits and events throughout the year, including romantic choices that make lovely date night ideas.

Mounts Botanical Gardens 

This living plant museum is something straight out of a fairy tale. Honestly, none of the descriptions and the pictures online do it justice. The architecture, the exotic plants, the layout, and even the way the garden is manicured is exquisite. This garden is worth every cent, and spending a morning here might very well be the equivalent of a day at the spa.

The Ball Park of The Palm Beaches 

Home to the Houston Astros and Washington nationals, West Palms Springs’ ballpark is perfect for the baseball enthusiast. Even if you’re not so much into baseball, you love the surrounding family-friendly areas filled with great dining and entertainment options.

South Florida Science Center and Aquarium

This place has it all. And we do mean all. Starting, of course, with its beautiful fresh and saltwater aquarium that would leave anyone in awe. The science center also offers over 50 educational exhibits…and counting. There is no marine life question that will remain unanswered. Plus, it is also home to an 18-hole mini-golf course. We almost can’t think of a better getaway with the family.

West Palm Beach Green Market

Also known as a “Farmers Market,” West Palm Beach’s Green Market is the place to be Saturday mornings. Not only is this the place to find some of the city’s most outstanding produce, but there are also tons of food options and entertainment throughout the street.

Sunfest

One of the most unique parts of being a West Palm Beach resident is the chance to attend Sunfest. The 5-day waterfront art and music festival happens every May. It consists of a 5k run (that you don’t actually have to participate in), arts and crafts vendors, amazing live bands, and a phenomenal firework show. With over 10,000 people in attendance each year, the festival becomes one big amazing party every time.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this list, but honestly, you can spend a lifetime exploring West Palm Beach and never truly be done finding new things. We can’t wait to hear about your favorites.
