Best Things to Do in West Palm Beach

Although the city sits on the shore of the Intracoastal Waterway, West Palm Beach offers only a handful of beaches where visitors can swim. Instead, the area is better known as a cultural hub, featuring museums like the traveler-recommended Norton Museum of Art and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Other major sites include the drive-through Lion Country Safari. If you're on the hunt for watersports in the Atlantic Ocean, head to Palm Beach.
