Price from £2156
Palm Beach was the upmarket resort created by Henry Flagler in the late 19th century, when his railroads opened up the state to tourism for the first time. This was where the well-heeled and the well-to-do came to escape the northern winters, and now it is home to a wonderful mix of shops, restaurants and culture, with the added bonus of great beaches along the palm-fringed Atlantic shores. Today, Palm Beach includes the city’s two must-see museums as well as the best of the local nature at Jonathan Dickinson State Park. Of course, there is also time for golf, spas and the essential Palm Beach pastime of upmarket shopping, and the dining opportunities are equally spectacular.
