People generally think of Palm Beach County as one region, from as far north as Jupiter to Delray in the south. West Palm Beach is right in the middle: a ritzy, exclusive beach town known for its wealthy society, beautiful beach homes, and designer shopping. The county embraces LGBT visitors and locals, welcomes cruise ship passengers, but banned spring-break crowds from the very start. Self-styled as "Florida's Golf Capital," the county has more golf courses than any other in the nation 160 in total. There are famous resort courses like PGA National Resort & Spa, but there are also 39 public courses. Tennis is also huge here; Andy Roddick and the Williams sisters are all residents. Finally, there's polo for the society set. If leisure sports aren't your speed, explore the surrounding area with Lion Country Safari, or visit the iconic Breakers Hotel to experience West Palm at its most retro-elegant.
