Situated on a beautiful stretch of Atlantic shoreline, West Palm Beach, Florida is an understandably popular vacation spot. An atmosphere that fuses Florida coastal chic with small-town charm also makes it a great place to live in an apartment as well.

The historic Breakers Palm Beach Hotel, built in the Italian-Renaissance style in 1926, has timeless appeal to visitors and residents of the Palm Beach area.

Another area highlight is Amici Market, a fine grocer and specialty food market just a ten-minute walk from the Breakers. If you have some skills in the kitchen, pick up high-quality groceries here and put those skills to the test in your West Palm Beach apartment. At Amici, you can find the perfect ingredients for just about any French, Italian, or seafood dish you want to prepare.
The upscale lifestyle center CityPlace, home to a Banana Republic, Gap, L’Occitane, and Macy’s, is a great place to beat the heat and upgrade your wardrobe or apartment decor.
