Jump to navigation Jump to search

Palm Beach is a well-to-do town on the east coast of Florida, adjacent to the larger city of West Palm Beach. Culturally known in many ways as the playground of the rich and famous; it is indeed a place full of oceanfront luxury resorts, upscale shopping centers, beautiful landscaping and architecture, nightlife opportunities, and dozens of stately mansions housing its wealthiest residents.

Get in[edit]

Palm Beach International Airport (PBI IATA), 1000 Turnage Boulevard, (561) 471-7420, [1]. This is a small, yet highly adequate airport. While both the Miami and the Fort Lauderdale airports are busy, PBI is easy to get in and out of, and is about five minutes from downtown West Palm Beach. Travelers flying into South Florida or the Bahamas should strongly consider PBI.

Nearby West Palm Beach is well-connected by rail. Long-distance trains are provided daily by Amtrak while Brightline and Tri Rail has multiple daily intercity services from Miami via Fort Lauderdale.

The local bus operator Palm Tran runs an limited service from West Palm Beach , mainly focused on commuters.

Get around[edit]

TriRail has stops at the West Palm Beach Airport towards Magnolia Park and Miami Airport.
