Get to know Palm Beach Gardens

Truth be told, Palm Beach Gardens is way more garden than it is beach. With the sandy stuff in such supply up and down South Florida, this city’s greenery is a rare treasure. PBG is inland from North Palm Beach and the John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, but since MacArthur also founded Palm Beach Gardens, the park functions as the city’s unofficial slice of salty blue. However, the dominant color in this city is green. Mainly, this is in the greens of golf courses: A dozen championship courses call the area home—including PGA tour venues—and gorgeous communities surround each of them. Actually, PBG is so golf crazy that the PGA keeps its headquarters in the city. Where it’s not growing grass for putting, Palm Beach Gardens boasts towering banyans and elms, and lush tropical vegetation thrives everywhere you look.

Palm Beach Gardens Commerce & Culture

High-end shopping is a Palm Beach Gardens staple, particularly at its malls—bonafide retail destinations—and several other commercial centers. Life here is serene but far from unexciting. Cultural cachet comes in the form of gala balls plus various artistic events, including from the local ballet company. The city is also an easy commute to more densely populated areas, even as far south as Miami. Transportation by train, plane, or boat is never far out of reach. However, this is no bedroom community: PBG plays host to an active nightlife teeming with live music. Local cuisine combines surf and turf, encompassing the beach and gardens part of the city’s name. People you’ll meet along the way are generally friendly and unhurried too. Unless, of course, they are running late for a tee time.
