West Palm Beach is the ideal spot in South Florida to host a birthday celebration. There are tons of activities in our neck of the woods that incorporate everything this city is known for, including outdoor fun in the sun. These five West Palm Beach birthday party ideas will keep everyone in your crew happy, especially the birthday guest of honor.

West Palm Beach Birthday Party Celebration Ideas

1.   Food Tours

We happen to think that celebrating a birthday with a food tour is way better than choosing just one restaurant for a birthday dinner.

Choose between our two popular public tours; you can either jump on one of our regularly scheduled tours or book a private one. Hang out inDowntown West Palm Beachfor three hours, sampling Peruvian and Colombian food plus the best Key Lime Pie in the state. This tour also offers an optional cocktail pairing at certain spots. Or, discover hidden gems in our historic neighborhoods on the Historic West Palm Beach Neighborhood Food Tour where you’ll get a coveted spot at the table of a five-time James Beard nominee.

We can even customize your birthday party food tour to cater to the tastes of the birthday guest of honor.

2.   Sunset Cruise

A sunset cruise is a great way to celebrate a birthday on its own — or paired with one or more activities on this list. This 90-minute cruise departs from downtown West Palm Beach at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

You’ll get great views of some of the fanciest mansions and yachts in the area, all while sipping cocktails, beer, wine and soda aboard your vessel.

3.   Cycle Party

Sometimes you simply want to be a passenger when it comes to birthday fun. Other times you want to get in on the action, too. Cycle Party lets you power your own cycle party through the streets of West Palm Beach. Your trusty driver knows the way and will guide you along a route that passes by some of the city’s most iconic sites.

Sip on beer, wine and cocktails along the way. You can also opt to stop at some famous bars for happy hour. Tours can even be customizable if you book a private tour.

4.   Dinner and a Show

If you’re looking for a more intimate activity, book a dinner and a show. This is perfect for a romantic birthday dinner or for a fun but quiet night out with a few couples.

The Kravis Center for Performing Arts has something for everyone on their calendar. From local performers to nationally known names, you can buy tickets for a show that’ll keep everyone in your party entertained. The theater books comedians, musicians and traveling Broadway shows.

Before or after the show, grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. We happen to love RH Rooftop Restaurantand the Regional Kitchen and Public Housefor special event dinners.

5.   Afternoon Tea

What better way to get your friends together than with afternoon tea? You can customize your high tea experience at each venue, depending on how big you want to splurge.

The Chesterfield

The Chesterfield is known for its traditional high tea menu. The English afternoon tea includes a selection of sandwiches, homemade scones and seasonal pastries. They also offer a Champagne tea that’s perfect for special events and birthdays that includes everything from the afternoon tea menu and a glass of Champagne.

Serenity Garden

We love Serenity Garden because of its ornate, shabby chic décor. High tea consists of a cup of soup and an assortment of sandwiches, scones and a pot of tea. The royal tea includes everything from the high tea menu and a glass of Champagne and pink lemonade.
