The holidays are officially over.. (sigh). While it’s always sad to say goodbye to the holiday season, it is nice to escape the craziness and get back to a normal routine.
This year for the holidays, my family and I went to Palm Beach right after Christmas and through New Years. It was an absolute blast ! Growing up, I had always gone to Palm Beach with my family so I was familiar with the area, but this time I loved it more than ever! Check out my favorite places to go below.
Where we stayed:
This trip, we stayed in a condo at the PGA Club in Palm Beach Gardens with my grandparents. We went to the hotel a couple times and the hotel wasn’t my favorite, but it wasn’t awful. One day at the pool, the entire pool was swarmed by birds to the point it was very uncomfortable. While this wasn’t the resorts fault, the service when this happen was very disappointing and we no longer went to the club.
Other than that, the location was great and overall it was a nice place to stay. If I were to do it again though, I would stay at the Four Seasons, Breakers, or the Eau.
Worth Avenue is a must. From cute restaurants to high end shopping and department stores, you cannot go to Palm Beach and not visit Worth Avenue. Some of my favorites include Intermix, Nemain Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Palm Beach Gardens Mall is a great mall to go to, especially when the weather is not so ideal in Palm Beach. The Gardens Mall has so many stores like Lululemon, Anthropologie, Athleta, Apple, Bloomingdales, Express, Forever 21, H&M, Madewell, Michael Kors, Nordstrom, Pacsun, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tory Burch, and so much more !
Okay so by far one of the best parts of the trip was that there was a SoulCycle pop-up in Palm Beach exactly while we were there! The pop-up was SO cute and fun, it was sponsored by Smart Water and the decorations as well as apparel were so cute. The classes were so popular, that they waitlisted every class. The instructors I went to were Conor, Eve, and Amanda. I would highly recommend all of them!
Other than that I tried Orange Theory in Palm Beach Gardens. I like Orange Theory, but this studio was nothing special and I like Barry’s Bootcamp a lot more.
One of my favorite restaurants of all time now. This Italian restaurant hidden in an alley off Worth Avenue is so adorable you feel like you are in Italy ! The food is also to die for. Definitely request to sit outside !
This restaurant has been on Worth Avenue for forever. The atmosphere is super fun and the food is really good too ! Definitely recommend for lunch, brunch, dinner, or just drinks.
This restaurant is right off of Worth Avenue on the ocean and is super cute! The food is good, the only down fall is that it is an amazing location, however the only way you can see outside is through a few windows.
First of all, the store is four floors of absolutely amazing decorations and furniture. This brand new store in the middle of Palm Beach takes up an entire block and is actually extraordinary. On the top floor, there is a rooftop cafe that is amazing. While they don’t take reservations and there will likely be a wait, it is worth it to walk around and see the store.
While a lot of the Breakers is only for members and guests, the Seafood bar is open to all and is so fun ! With an amazing view of the ocean and great food, I definitely recommend.
This restaurant in Juno Beach has been one of my family’s long time favorites. The seafood is so fresh and the atmosphere is super fun due to it being small, local, old, casual, and fun.
This restaurant by the pool and right on the beach is so cute and the food is so good ! We came here straight from the airport and it was by far one of my favorite places we ate.
Celis Juice Bar: This juice bar was in the same plaza as SoulCycle and was seriously so cute ! Along with carrying kombucha, healthy snacks, health cookies, smoothies, acai bowls, and so much more, all their produce is so delicious and organic. We came here almost everyday after SoulCycle. One day the whole family even came to get acai bowls for lunch!
