Why Live in Palm Beach County?

Named after one of the area's oldest settlements, Palm Beach County is a popular destination because of its beaches and pleasant weather. Even since the 19th century, Palm Beach County has been a hot spot for development activity; in the late 1800s with the extension of the railroad, new hotels like The Breakers in Palm Beach and Henry Flagler's winter estate Whitehall (now the Flagler Museum) were constructed as winter retreats for the wealthy.

Today, Palm Beach County continues to be a popular vacation destination for visitors and a primary home, winter retreat, or retirement destination for residents.
