Palm Beach

Palm Beach has some of the ritziest designer shopping in the country, from Armani to Chanel to Gucci, but West Palm Beach caters to the masses, with everything from chain stores to antiques. Delray Beach also has an eclectic, artsy downtown shopping district. The ultimate Palm Beach purchase? A sexy bikini from Bottega Veneta creative director and part-time Florida resident Tomas Maier, who has an eponymous boutique just off Worth Avenue.

Shopping in Palm Beach


This sprawling outdoor shopping district patterned after an Italian town center offers 80 retailers, 20 restaurants, a performing arts center, and a 20-screen Muvico cinema with IMAX theater and full-service bar. Even when Palm Beach is a summer ghost town, CityPlace, though not packed, still feels alive.

Clematis Street

West Palm's historic downtown has had its share of business turnover, but you’ll still find an interesting mix of shops – buy cashmere linens and Mardi Gras beads within a few blocks of each other. It's equally well known for its nightlife, attracting a younger crowd than Palm Beach, just over the bridge.

Downtown at the Gardens

This two-story, open-air shopping plaza with 40 stores and restaurants, a movieplex, and a Whole Foods Market anchors Palm Beach Gardens' city center. A rotating collection of sculptures adds visual pizzazz through the city's active Art in Public Places program.

Downtown Delray Beach

Delray's eclectic downtown shopping district, along Atlantic Avenue, runs the gamut from couture to quirky one-of-a-kind boutiques. The adjacent Pineapple Grove Arts District, a collection of galleries, shops, and cafes, is dotted with public artworks. In between, the Old School Square Cultural Arts Center houses exhibits and live performances.

West Palm Beach Antique Row

Everything from hand-painted ceramics and 18th-century French antiques to mid-century modern furniture and designer fabrics can be found among the more than 45 shops of Antique Row, congregated along a one-mile stretch of Dixie Highway. A street festival is held here each spring.

Worth Avenue

Most often described as Florida's version of Rodeo Drive, the palm-lined thoroughfare overflows with high-end specialty stores and designer heavyweights like Pucci, Chanel, and Jimmy Choo. Don't overlook the lovely, shop-filled courtyards tucked into side streets along the avenue – like Via Mizner where Tomas Maier's ultra-chic swimwear can be found.
