P A L M B E A C H R E L O C A T I O N G U I D E . C O M 91 Palm Beach County is rich in world-class shopping, incredible restaurants, unique art galleries and cultural offerings, museums with intriguing collections, and West Palm Beach is the hub. With an exciting downtown that offers the benefts of a much larger city, this growing economic center is drawing not only visitors from around the world, but residents, too. With amenities that cater to the wealthy residents of Palm Beach, this small city offers big cultural advantages. Living in downtown West Palm Beach provides convenient access to the rest of the city. With so much happening inside the central area, there is little reason to leave. West Palm Beach is one of the oldest cities in South Florida and the historic areas have a distinctive tropical ambiance, combining the Spanish Colonial Revival influence of renowned 1920s architect Addison Mizner with the updated beauty of sleek contemporary buildings. The distinctive skyline is much photographed from the water, and the city is instantly recognizable from the air as you approach for landing at the Palm Beach International Airport. From bohemian and artistic to trendy and modern, from urban to upscale, West Palm Beach gives residents much more than balmy tropical weather. Its citizens have created a city where people can walk, ride bikes or push baby strollers, where they can feel safe on the streets day or night, and everyone can explore a longer list of things to do than anyone could ever imagine. ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT The heart of West Palm Beach is the Arts & Entertainment District, with every cultural amenity one would expect in a major urban area, including the Palm Beach Opera, Palm Beach Pops, Ballet Florida, the Symphony, world-class museums such as the Norton Museum of Art and the Flagler Museum, an active Historical Society, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, and much more. CityPlace is at the geographic center of urban West Palm Beach. The European style plaza and walkways are lined with shops and restaurants, and live enter- tainment fills the balmy air with music all evening every Friday and Saturday Photo courtesy of West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority
