At one time, Worth Ave. was an exclusive enclave for old money. After a couple of major remakes, it has become a bit more touristy and added a few chain stores. There's even a mall at the eastern end with a Starbuck's. (In fact, the mall's parking garage is a convenience.) Nevertheless, Worth Ave. remains the preeminent, beautiful, and pricey commercial district of Palm Beach. I recommend visiting during “the season” (winter) for a few reasons: the weather is temperate, there is more activity, and, during the holidays, the decorations are special. If you only plan to window-shop, try visiting after dark; many shops are closed, but the lights are nice, nearby nightspots are open, and it's cooler. If you plan to buy, go during a sunny afternoon. There are spaces between the buildings, called “vias,” that are accessible only by foot. Some of these feature decorative tile-work, pools, and gardens. Take time to explore them, but please do not call them alleys. In short, if you're in the Palm Beaches, Worth Ave. is still a “must see.”
