With roughly 4,200 seats spread throughout four venues (including an outdoor amphitheater), the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts is the spot in West Palm for the performing arts. The venue puts on approximately 550 gospel, jazz, classical and dance performances each year, including a variety of musicals and outdoor concerts. Notable past guests and performances include "Cats," William Shatner, the Miami City Ballet and Michael Bublé.

Though some former guests said audio quality and sight lines were hit or miss depending on your seat, overall, visitors rave about the diversity of performances offered. Many also praise the venue's friendly staff and convenient free parking.

The Kravis Center is located adjacent to downtown's CityPlace complex and can be reached by car or the West Palm Beach Trolley's yellow line. Palm Tran's No. 1, 41, 44 and 45 buses also stop within a half-mile of the venue. Event ticket prices vary depending on the show, time and seat selection. To purchase tickets, visitors can buy online on the Kravis Center's website, order by phone or visit the box office, which is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to free parking, the venue also features a casual eatery, a gift shop, restrooms and valet parking services.

#1 McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary

Featuring more than 170 animals, including lions, tigers, panthers and lemurs, McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary is an ideal attraction for animal lovers. Unlike Lion Country Safari and the Palm Beach Zoo, McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary affords visitors an up close view of various animals, as well as interactive opportunities with many of the property's smaller species. In fact, travelers can hold everything from baby alligators to pythons during each tour.

Overall, past visitors appreciated McCarthy's mission to rehabilitate injured or abandoned wild animals. Not only are the grounds well-maintained, but the tour guides are also informative, polite and engaging, according to reviewers. Remember, though, to make arrangements for this attraction well in advance since appointments are required. Another note: Children younger than 5 are not permitted.
