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.
