The Town of Palm Beach is truly a beautiful, private and serene place to live in. The island is 11 miles long and about 2 miles wide controlled by 3 spawn bridges that connect the island to the mainland West Palm Beach. The island development was the brainchild of Henry Flager a Railroad Tycoon of the 18th Century who first came down to Palm Beach in 1897 and invisioned a vacation paradise that he could bring people from the east in his railroad

Mr Flager original home is now a museum in the Island called the "Henry Flager Museum" formerly called "Whitehall", and Built the Breakers Hotel a historical Hotel Landmark in the Island. There are no Mc Donalds, Bowling Alleys and even Movie theathers and the Locals prefer it that way.

There is what is called old money, and new money what the islanders refer to families that had it , Rockefellers, Kennedy's et. and the Dot Commers, Industrialist, Music Artist and Foreign Buyers such as the Russian Billionaire that just reportedly bought a $100 million estate owned by Donald Trump.

If you havent visited the Breakers Hotel and strolled is magnificent halls or dined at is famed "Le Escalier" restaurant you dont know what your missing.

Palm Beach is truly beautiful,
