Visitors' guide to West Palm Beach's attractions, restaurants and hotels
Located on the northern part of Florida's Gold Coast, West Palm Beach is often considered to be Palm Beach's poor relation. West Palm Beach is larger and more focused on culture, entertainment and business. This is the largest city in Palm Beach County.
The arts are well represented here, with the $60 million Kravis Center for the Performing Arts making a big impression. The small downtown area of West Palm Beach has been revived in recent years and on beautiful Clematis Street there are some wonderful boutiques and a vibrant nightlife. The Norton Gallery houses one of the nation's finest art collections.
The South Florida Science Museum and Aldrin Planetarium has numerous interactive exhibits. It features eight saltwater aquariums and a living coral reef. The Aldrin Planetarium runs a Science Magic Show that is a spectacular event and should not be missed.
