I highly suggest you get on the free trolly and let it take you around downtown. It's probably the best way to see almost everything. They have a few trolly lines, we took the green and yellow. If you take both, you'll get to see the water front in addition to the shops and entertainment in the area. They have... More

I love downtown West Palm Beach. Clematis by night was a great night out with friends, then we strolled around downtown. The Farmers market is another great activity, everything is so fresh and vast variety of vegetables, breads etc. I wish is open the whole year!

Has some nice restaurants and shops to look at. Has that urban feel yet still a bit down home. Nice waterfront. Clean. Parking can be a hassle or a bit pricey so the best bet is to try the public garages. You can spend the night around City Place or Clematis St. Has a good trolley going from one place... More

The wonderful view of the ocean and the bridge recently built makes it very soothing experience. Downtown West Palm Beach have many amenities for locals and visitors. For example many restaurants like Rocco's Taco ( Really good food and always packed) We also have the Diva Duck attraction, which is a truck that rides on the streets of Downtown area... More

After breakfast at The Circle at Breakers, we went for a walk around downtown West Palm Beach and had a great time. Lots to see and shopping. But be mindful of where you park. The people working the meters were out in full force ticketing.

West Palm is Avery polished and generally upmarket place to visit, as evidenced by the number of Porsche and Lamborghinis driving around. But it does have some cultural charm too.

I have lived in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida, for the past eleven years and have witnessed its vitality, Busy, busy entertainment, restaurant, shopping and theater attractions make this area an oasis for tourists and residents alike. It is also home to City Hall and nearby County and Florida State offices. Its San Francisco like bright red trolleys that bring... More

WPB was a revelation to us. It's such a relaxed and friendly city - not at all intimidating. Excellent choice of shops and restaurants and only a short stroll from the lovely waterfront area. Make sure you use the free Downtown Trolley - brilliant for tourists.

While City Place is enjoyable, the stores are too oriented to high wealth shoppers. The restaurants and venues are good, but frankly the whole area is suspect when it comes to feeling safe. In 14 years living in WPB, I've rarely felt completely safe or valued by the shops and restaurants. I would not dare to take my wife to... More
