Where to Eat and What to Do in West Palm Beach & Palm Beach


We love food, and we love West Palm Beach, so consider us experts when it comes to restaurants and things to do around town.   Every day on our West Palm Beach Food Tours, guests ask “where to eat” and “what to do,” and we have answers.

This isn’t meant to be a comprehensive list of the best restaurants and best things to do in the West Palm Beach/Palm Beach area; it’s just a list of what we’d do, and where we’d take our houseguests to satisfy every craving.

Note: We limited our list to restaurants, things to do and hotels in Downtown West Palm Beach and Palm Beach. Near the bottom of the list, we’ve added some of our favorite restaurants and things to do that are a short drive away from Downtown West Palm Beach.
