Staying in a condo in Palm Beach is a great way to get the full experience of the laid-back city on the shores of the Florida South Atlantic Coast. From anywhere on the barrier island, you'll be within easy access of restaurants, shops, and the cool ocean breeze. At your rental home, you might be able to enjoy a dip in the swimming pool, and you can use your balcony or deck to soak up the sun.
The warm waters of the Florida coast are ideal for swimming. If you're looking for a place to put your toes in the sand, there are plenty of options. You can throw on snorkeling gear if you'd like to venture further off shore to see tropical fish.
The mild winters and the many sunny days make the region a great place to play golf. There are over 40 public courses as well as some of the finest private courses in the nation. The West Palm Beach Course has hosted a number of PGA tournaments, the Red Reef Executive Golf Course is a nine-hole course that hugs the shoreline, and the Okeeheelee Golf Course boasts 27 holes, a driving range, and a putting green.
The winter is a great time to visit, especially if you're from a place that sees a lot of snow. Highs at this time of year are in the upper 70s, with lows dipping into the upper 50s. Summers are hot and humid, pushing 90 degrees on many days and only dropping into the 70s at night. The wet season lasts from May to October.
Taking Interstate 95 south from anywhere along the eastern seaboard can get you to your rental property in the Palm Beach region. Parking is convenient, and a private car or rental car is one of the best ways to get around the area. You can also fly into the Palm Beach International Airport or take an Amtrak train. If you'd like to head to Miami first, you can take the Tri-Rail, the local commuter train, into Palm Beach.
