We have over 100 years of exciting historical figures, places you have to see, and things you must do. Ease on down with these lucky seven.

  1. Light Up Your Life
    Standing tall and majestic is the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, the most historic icon of The Palm Beaches. This 1860 landmark and adjacent History Museum offers climbing tours to an amazing vista of the surrounding Atlantic Ocean.
  2. Hop a Free Trolley
    Sit back and relax while riding between more than 20 distinct and dynamic cultural institutions, galleries and performing arts centers along the Arts & Entertainment District of downtown West Palm Beach.
  3. Go to Court
    Courthouse, that is. Visit the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum and explore the surprising architectural reveal of a 1916 courthouse that houses both permanent and special exhibits.
  4. Visit an American Castle
    Palatial and magnificent, the Flagler Museum, originally known as Whitehall, was built more than a century ago during the Gilded Age as a wedding present as a testament to one man’s devotion and love.
  5. Find Your Zen
    Most visitors are surprised to discover the connection between Japan and The Palm Beaches, but one visit to the peaceful and awe-inspiring beauty of the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens will soon cease your puzzlement and ease your heartbeat.
  6. Journey Back at School
    Yes, we know. . . most folks don’t want to go back, but the Delray Beach Center for the Arts packs multiple punches of easy learning with the Old School Square Cultural Art Center, Crest Theatre and Cornell Museum of Art, so be sure to attend a “class” or two.
  7. Take a Ticket to Ride
    Pick a tour and grab your seat, as the Boca Raton Historical Society offers a variety of historical tours including: Boca Express Train Museum, Boca Raton Resort & Club, Town Hall, Boca Raton, and other specialty tours.
