With a warm climate and sandy stretches, it's no surprise that West Palm Beach is a popular vacation spot. Though it competes with the neighboring Palm Beach resort for tourism, this city's growing nightlife scene and beautiful waterways have helped it earn recognition as a tourist attraction in its own right. In addition to water activities like sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling, the city boasts some charming historic districts. You'll discover fine examples of both turn-of-the-century and Art Deco architecture. Shopping opportunities abound amid palm tree-lined streets. Our United States trip builder allows you to plan your trip to West Palm Beach and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
