Get out and Explore Palm Beach County



The Palm Beach County area has many of the staples one expects when visiting a new area. There is a city zoo, great museums and cultural activities. There are also miles of spectacular coastline, wildlife and world class golf courses. 

If you are coming with the family (depending on the season), you will want to make sure and check out the Palm Beach Zoo. This half-day attraction will fascinate both the young and old. The sheer volume of active animals and learning exhibits will keep the minds and cameras active. 

If you are the typical Florida traveler, you will want to know where to go for fun in the sun. Lake Worth has an excellent public beach and pool where you can avoid parking hassles and the pretentious crowd. 

Another big area draw is Roger Dean Stadium. During February and March, professional baseball teams come to the area to train and play exhibition games in preparation of the regular season. This is a great time to meet players, collect autographs and get some great pictures. Later on in the year, the stadium is home to two minor league ball clubs. 

Don't forget the area is great for wildlife consumption. Grab your camera and backpack and head to one of the many parks and hiking trails in the area.
