Things to do from Holiday Inn-Airport

Hi!

I'm tagging along with my husband to WPB. He will be in meetings for two days, and I'd like some advice on things to do during the day. We will be staying at the Holiday Inn-Airport.

I'm aware of a shuttle to City Place. Are there any other malls or outlets in the area? Is it easy to get to the beach? Does anyone recommend (or not recommend) renting a car and drivng to Sawgrass Mills for a day of shopping?

Thanks in advance for any information!

If you are a die hard shopper, Saw Grass Mills is it. It is a full day so FYI. It will take a little over 1 hour from the hotel, and you will need a rent-a-car. As far as locally, you already know about City Place which you should not miss. There is upsacle shopping on Palm Beach on Worth Ave. The beach is right near there as well. You will need to either get a rent a car or a cab over there as your hotel is about 3 miles from the beach/Worth ave area. Another good mall we have in the area is Palm Beach Gardens Mall. If you head North on 1-95 about 8 miles(10 minutes), get off on PGA heading East. The mall will be on your left about 1 mile east. If i were in your shoes, I would get a rent-a-car. Have fun.

Thanks! We will have a car. I'm trying to decide if I want to drive to Sawgrass Mills or not as I'd be pretty nervous driving on unfamiliar freeways....would you recommend the turnpike or I-95 south? Palm Beach Gardens Mall would probably be my best choice since it is closer. I looked at the directory and they have some great stores. Are there any other discount places near the Palm Beach Gardens Mall such as TJ Maxx or Marshall's?

The Gardens Mall is off of PGA, if you go east on PGA after coming out of the mall there is both a Marshalls and TJ Maxx located on PBG . They are before you come to a bridge to cross over the intercoastal. If you google both stores and do Palm Beach Gardens as location a map should come up.

That should say located on PGA, not PBG...both are on the right heading east a couple of miles past the mall. Signage here is lower to the ground so you'll need to be looking for them!!
