West Palm Beach Area Map

Neighborhoods

West Palm Beach's eastern shore is lined with miles of shoreline, pristinely kept and dotted with palm trees. While the city boasts stunning water views, West Palm is best known for its museums and historic homes. The region also features plenty of high-end retail shops, casual eateries and parks, where visitors can participate in a variety of outdoor activities.

Downtown

Downtown West Palm Beach sits in the middle of the city and houses most of the city's hotels, restaurants and attractions. Nightlife is also centered here along Clematis Street, a street between the Intracoastal Waterway and Clear Lake that features tons of bars and restaurants. CityPlace, a few blocks south, is home to performance venues for culture hounds who want to catch an evening show.

Flamingo Park

South of downtown is Flamingo Park, an area that was once a pineapple plantation and is now known for its Mediterranean Revival- and Mission Revival-style homes. The Armory Arts Center – a historic art deco building – resides in this neighborhood as well. For additional Mediterranean-Revival style homes, visitors can travel just southwest of Flamingo Park to the historic neighborhood of El Cid.

Mango Promenade

Just to the east of Flamingo Park and south of downtown West Palm is Mango Promenade. The highly regarded Norton Museum of Art sits in this neighborhood, as well as Palm Beach Atlantic University.

Northwest

The Northwest area started as the city's segregated black community in the mid-1900s. Now, visitors can check out a variety of architectural designs, including Bahamian-style homes and American bungalows. Two homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places – the Gwen Cherry House and the Alice Frederick Mickens House – are also located here.

Grandview Heights

Located to the south of downtown West Palm Beach is the Grandview Heights neighborhood. This area once housed the city's hotel construction workers and is considered one of West Palm's oldest intact districts. Though part of the neighborhood was demolished to make way for downtown's CityPlace complex, Grandview Heights remains one of the city's best places to see early Craftsman-style bungalows.
