Get to know Palm Beach Gardens

Palm Beach Gardens is, truth be told, more about gardens than beach, but the sandy stuff is in such supply in South Florida that this city’s greenery is a true treasure. PBG is a city of 50,000 inland from North Palm Beach and the John D. MacArthur Beach State Park. Since MacArthur also founded Palm Beach Gardens, the park functions as the city’s unofficial slice of salty blue. The dominant color in the city, however, is green — and mostly in the greens of golf courses. A dozen championship courses call the area home, including PGA tour venues (the organization has its headquarters here), and gorgeous gated communities surround each of them. Where it’s not growing grass for putting, the city boasts towering banyans and elms, and lush tropical vegetation thrives everywhere you look.

Commerce & Culture

High-end shopping and dining are PBG staples, particularly at retail destinations The Gardens Mall and Downtown at the Gardens, but also at several other commercial centers. Life here is serene, with cultural cachet from gala balls and Ballet Palm Beach, and fairly easy commutes to more densely populated spots in the Miami area. Transportation by train, plane, or boat is never far away. This is no bedroom community, however; PBG plays host to an active nightlife that teems with live music. The streets are safe and clean, and the locals are friendly and unhurried. Unless, of course, they are late for a tee time.
