Palm Beach — Ever since Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railway arrived in Palm Beach in 1894, this barrier isle north of Miami on the state’s eastern coast has basked in its reputation as a winter resort for the wealthy. Also worth exploring: the 37 surrounding municipalities of Palm Beach County, a mixture of cool urban sophistication and vintage Florida beach-town charm.

Why Go

For sun-soaking in the playground of Rockefellers and Kennedys at oceanfront mansions, tony shops, and PGA golf courses.
