If one is in the Palm Beaches on an extended stay, or if one has a particular interest in the art and architecture of the Gilded Age of American history, then plan to devote one morning or afternoon to the Flagler Museum. The centerpiece of the property is “Whitehall,” a grand mansion built as a winter home by Henry Morrison Flagler in 1902. One will gain a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of that period as well as an appreciation of Mr. Flagler's importance as a foundational figure in the history of South Florida (Palm Beach in particular). If possible, plan to visit during the Christmas season, as the decorations are exceptional, but at any time of the year, plan to take a docent-led tour.
