Playful pinks, lime greens and palm themes blend harmoniously at The Colony Palm Beach, a recently revamped très chic boutique hotel perfectly situated for a sweet escape — solo, paired up, with friends or the whole family. Steps from the beach and all your favorite designer shops, each guest room and suite has a unique design, décor and personality, making every stay a highly Instagram-worthy adventure that will keep you coming back again and again. Grab a poolside cocktail, brunch or dinner at Swifty’s and don’t dare leave without an introduction to Johnnie Brown, the property’s mischievous monkey mascot! — Photo c/o The Colony Palm Beach
A sunrise on the sand, a dip in the sea and a snap by the iconic Worth Avenue Clock Tower is the perfect start to a day of adventure. A 12-mile ride along the Lake Worth Bike Trail is highlighted by breezy vistas, yachts, lush gardens, a majestic kapok tree and expansive mansions, including Whitehall, Henry Flagler’s grand Gilded Age estate at the Flagler Museum. Stop to recharge at rustic French-inspired Almond Palm Beach, where market-fresh and locally sourced ingredients (and signature cocktails!) are served up with gusto. Reserve a guided private bike tour with @IslandLivingPB and Palm Beach insider Leslie Diver to get the inside scoop on all the hush-hush indiscretions of the island’s storied past. Guaranteed to make your jaw drop and have you questioning everything you read in the history books!
If shopping is your pleasure, art, fashion and an endless array of life’s little treasures can be found on Worth Avenue and The Royal Poinciana Plaza, where luxury shops outfitting fashionista favorites can be found among meticulously landscaped courtyards, soothing fountains, arched entryways and whimsical patio walkways. Bring that laid back beachy vibe back home with a visit to the massive Restoration Hardware showroom where you can catch the sunset over a glass of wine and a nibble at RH Rooftop while picking out new furnishings to take a little slice of paradise back with you when your journey’s reached its end. — Photo c/o The Palm Beaches
