Palm Beach Travel Guide

It's been exactly one week since I returned home from Palm Beach, and no words can describe how much I miss it. If I had to describe Palm Beach in five words, I would use the words beautiful, relaxing, colorful, tropical, and perfect. Palm Beach is nothing short of a paradise. My trip was over all too soon, and I find myself already wishing that I could go back. I've been on many vacations, but this one was easily one of the best I've ever been on. Palm Beach was a little escape from everything; the many stores in the town gave it a bustling feel, but the serenity of the beach created the perfect balance between worlds.

I can't describe it for you any more; you'll just have to see the pictures and take my word for it. If you are going to Palm Beach soon, I hope you find this travel guide helpful! Even if you're not taking a trip to the area, keep reading for some gorgeous pictures!

Beach // The best part about Palm Beach was the beach, obviously. We stayed at the Marriott on Singer Island, so we had access to a private beach. I had so much fun with my family, and we took a bunch of cute pictures! If you want to see some of my (many) beach pictures, take a look at my Instagram!

Starbucks Breakfast on The Beach // Live The Prep Life

On most mornings, we ate breakfast on the beach. We had Starbucks Coffee from the hotel, and these mini muffins from Whole Foods. It was really peaceful to sit back and soak up the sunshine as I ate.

The Breakers // While we didn't stay at this famous hotel, we did take a peek inside one evening before dinner. The hotel has such a classic design, and you must go walk around inside. They also have several cute little gift shops - we went after all of the shops were closed, but it seems like it would have been fun to pop in the stores there!

C.Orrico // In Palm Beach, there is a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store called C.Orrico. It was my first time in a Signature Store, and I was in awe. Everyone in there was so friendly, and they have an amazing sale selection! I also spotted some more of my favorite brands such as Lauren James in there.

Sisters Shopping on Worth Avenue // Palm Beach Travel Guide // Live The Prep Life

My favorite thing that we did on the trip (besides the beach, of course) was shopping on Worth Avenue. I'm not going to go into much detail on this, because I did an entire post for that day, but you should click here to read about it!

Lilly Pulitzer // Of course, I had to visit the biggest Lilly Pulitzer store in the world. It's located in the Palm Beach Gardens Mall, and it is gorgeous! They have the prettiest dressing rooms, and since the store is so big they can carry a lot of clothes! I loved all the design aspects of the store, and I found myself taking several pictures as inspiration for my room. (Unfortunately, I'm not redesigning my room any time soon, but you can see what my room looks like here!) I'm saving my money for the big August sale that's coming up, but I did purchase this top.

Pizza Al Fresco // After going to The Breakers, my family and I went to dinner at Pizza Al Fresco. Pizza is a family favorite for us because everyone loves pizza, and we all agreed that this restaurant was one of the best! Their pizza is so flavorful, and the atmosphere is so pretty with all of the little twinkle lights. I got the vegetarian pizza, and it was beyond amazing.

Rocco's Tacos // I loved this casual restaurant! I was a huge fan of their mushroom tacos, because mushrooms are my favorite vegetable and I'd never seen a mushroom taco on a menu anywhere before. We also got the tableside guacamole, and it was incredible. Rocco's Tacos has such a fun atmosphere, and I recommend it!

Nick & Johnnie's // We ate here after we went shopping on Worth Avenue. My quinoa and kale burger with hummus and avocado was delicious, but the best part of the restaurant had to do with the chairs! Confused? Click here to see the chairs, and it will all make sense.

Waterway Cafe // One day for lunch, we ate at this lunch place that was on the water, hence the name Waterway Cafe. My chicken sandwich was so good, and we sat outside so we could watch the boats go by. They also have a little dock that you can walk out on - it's perfect for taking pictures!

Sloan's Ice Cream // Palm Beach Travel Guide // Live The Prep Life

Sloan's Ice Cream // This little ice cream shop was probably one of the best, if not the best, ice cream shops I've ever tried. The flavors were mind blowing! I got Tracy's Scrumptious Pretzel - "caramel ice cream with milk chocolate covered pretzels and peanut butter swirls," as per their website. However, deciding between that flavor, the Chunky Peanut Butter Cup, and the Birthday Cake was the hardest decision ever. I only wish that there was a Sloan's Ice Cream in Dallas so I could try all of the flavors!
