History & Culture
West Palm Beach is the oldest incorporated city in South Florida, and although it began as a place for hospitality workers catering to the exclusive hotels and mansions of Palm Beach, it has eclipsed its rich uncle in its variety of cultural offerings. Weekly concerts and festivals are a part of life here, and more formal events — such as SunFest, Florida’s largest waterfront music festival — happen throughout the year. The Norton Museum of Art hosts world-class rotating exhibits as well as educational programs, and the sculpture gardens are not to be missed. Families will also enjoy the Palm Beach Zoo and the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium. The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts hosts touring Broadway shows, performances by the Palm Beach Opera and Ballet Palm Beach, and concerts by classical, jazz, and pop stars from the world over.
