Well, this 3 mile walk is perfect for you !  And it does NOT include shopping or Worth Avenue.   This is for someone who wants to get out, walk or jog and get a bit of exercise in a really cool area and see some local stuff. 

  • 5 Things to Do in Palm Beach  Welcome!  Here’s a 3 mile walk or jog that is a great way to take in incredible scenery and also get a flavor for downtown West Palm Beach, its waterfront, and also the town of Palm Beach, what some of you refer to as Palm Beach island.   
  • Palm Beach Hotels   Whether you are staying at the new Hilton Hotel Convention Center  http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/florida/hilton-west-palm-beach-PBIWPHH/event/index.html  and want to go for a jog in the morning before your conference or meeting, at the Palm Beach Convention Center, http://www.pbconventioncenter.com/  or whether you are staying in a posh hotel in Palm Beach like The Breakers,   https://www.thebreakers.com/The Colony,   https://www.thecolonypalmbeach.com/The Brazilian Court, http://www.thebraziliancourt.com/ this is a great walk for you with stuff to do.  ESPECIALLY around sunset !
  • This walk or jog in a circle around the Intracoastal Waterway has everything you want to see, including Palm Beach, great architecture, beautiful scenery.   This “walk in a circle” jaunt  allows you to enjoy a beautiful Florida day while getting some exercise.  You can jog this or walk it.  Here are 5 things to do in a 3 mile Palm Beach Circle.
  • (1) Start at the Meyer Amphitheatre   http://wpb.org/cityfun/locations/meyer-amphitheatre/ on Flagler Drive and Evernia Street in downtown West Palm Beach.  http://www.downtownwpb.com/  The Meyer is a great park with views of Palm Beach, the intracoastal waterway and two bridges leading to Palm Beach.  The waterfront has recently been “re-developed” and widened over the last few years.  It’s bigger, safer and better and is an amazing place to walk or jog.  You will never, ever, get bored of the beautiful Palm Beach scenery. Start your Palm Beach Circle walk or jog by heading north, towards the north bridge. The water will be on your right.  (Parking is reasonably priced by the Meyer Amphitheatre at the parking meters, on Flagler Drive, or just one block west on Evernia and by South Olive Avenue, there is a very reasonably priced city parking garage.  The city parking garage is on the north side of the 300 block of Evernia Street, across from the city’s very first craft brewery downtown, the West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault. )
  • Take a Right on Flagler Memorial Bridge.  As you head north, on Flagler Drive, you will see mansions of Palm Beach on your right, across the Intracoastal Waterway, as your view approaches The Henry Morrison Flagler Museum  known as Whitehall.   http://www.flaglermuseum.us/   Whitehall is across the water from West Palm Beach in Palm Beach.  When you get to the north bridge, known as the Flagler Memorial Bridge, take a right and head east, into the town.  The waterway and bridges connect West Palm Beach, from the town of Palm Beach.   The bridges have a schedule for opening and closing at this site  https://www.townofpalmbeach.com/566/Bridge-Schedules 
  • (2) Lake Trail   OK, everyone likes to go for a walk, right?  And walking the Lake Trail in Palm Beach is pretty, with fantastic water views, cityscapes of West Palm Beach, and amazing! sunsets. After crossing the north bridge (Flagler Memorial Bridge), take a right at the intersection (Coconut) and head south.  The entrance to the Lake Trail is behind/next to The Henry Morrison Flagler Museum.  
  • (3) Visiting Flagler Museum    While you are there, stop into the Flagler Museum and learn about how Florida was developed, how the railroad came to South Florida and get a glimpse at the gilded age.  The museum, which was the summer home for Henry Flagler, is historically significant, and open to the public for a small fee. If you love mansions, are a railroad buff, or just want to get a peak of American history at the turn of the last century, this is a must see. 
  • (4) Society of the Four Arts     https://www.fourarts.org/Head south along the Lake Trail and enjoy the walk or jog.  There may be faster folks on beach comber bikes or rollerblades sailing past you, so stay right.   As you approach the middle bridge, known as the Royal Park Bridge, stop into the gardens of the Society of the Four Arts.  Or, if you have time, stop into the Society of the Four Arts and check out there exhibition schedule or performance schedule. Then, head west over the middle bridge back into West Palm Beach, taking a right along the water on Flagler Drive, and heading north once again, to the point where you began this best walk ever: Evernia Street and Flagler Drive near the Meyer Amphitheatre.  Want to know why the middle bridge is pink in January?  Click this link:   https://www.palmbeachermagazine.com/noteworthy/why-palm-beach-middle-bridge-illuminated-pink
  • (5) Thirsty + Hungry !   Finally, as you approach the point of the beginning of this best walking trail in Palm Beach, take a left on Evernia Street and head 1.5 blocks west, past South Olive Avenue but before South Dixie Highway.  At 332 Evernia Street, you can stop into the very first downtown West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault for a 37 degree craft beer made right there on the premises at their 10 barrel production facility and served in their tap room.  Great happy hours most Mondays-Fridays from 4:00-7:00 pm.   Or, if you want to stay outside in the shade, there is table service for food, beer and premium wine outside, at the tables or grab a chair. There is outside seating, umbrellas and awnings for shade.  Well behaved pets are welcome and treated lovingly.  This brewery and restaurant is pet friendly and very family friendly (bring the strollers !! )  They have amazing limited production, vineyard direct wine https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-wines/  from places like Napa, Santa Barbara, Sonoma and AVAs like Howell Mountain, Oakville and the Sta Rita Hills.  There is a small restaurant in the brewery, called the Intracoastal Kitchen https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-food/  with healthy options like fire roasted veggies and salads as well as wings, upmarket gourmet Florence inspired brick oven pizza and beer bites.
