Welcome to Palm Beach County
Golfing haven paired with a vibrant cultural scene
Stretching along Florida’s Atlantic Coast with miles of rural landscape and masterfully designed golf courses, Palm Beach County is a relocation hotspot for retirees and golf bluffs and a vacation haven for the uber-wealthy. Home to some of Florida’s finest restaurants, luxury hotels, and shopping outlets, Palm Beach County’s temperate climate is characterized by plentiful sunshine with residents soaking in the beautiful weather on pristine beaches and lush greenspaces.
Established in 1909 and named after one of its oldest settlements, Palm Beach County boasts two flourishing industries today — real estate and agriculture, the latter of which earned its nickname as the “winter vegetable capital” of the nation. Quick accessibility from the Palm Beach International Airport makes the area easy to arrive and leave, while its excellent public and private schools, family-friendly atmosphere, and immersive community culture have made it a great place to raise the kids.
Experience the luxury of Florida’s wealthiest County with palatial homes strewn across charming streets. With pruned hedges and beautiful private gates, properties in the area are truly gorgeous. From luxurious waterfront townhomes to sleek beachside condos and incredibly spacious single-family residences offering the ultimate in convenience, there is something for every taste in this locale.
