With an estimated year-round population of around nine thousand residents and a seasonal population of roughly twenty thousand, this well-established community has much to offer vacationers and prospective homebuyers alike. Incorporated in 1911, Palm Beach was originally a resort created by Henry Morrison Flagler.

Since its beginning, the neighboring communities of Lake Worth and West Palm Beach have been separated from Palm Beach by the glistening waters of the Intracoastal Waterway.

Covering 10 square miles on a 16-mile barrier island, Palm Beach is a resort town dating back to 1894 when the founder of Standard Oil, Henry Flagler, built the Royal Poinciana Hotel only 22 years after the first settlers arrived on the island. Famous architect and Palm Beach resident Addison Mizner spent the early twentieth century designing and building the iconic Mediterranean-style architecture ubiquitous throughout the town.
With a year-round population of nearly 9,000 people, the town’s numbers balloon to 25,000 people during the winter months. Despite the $125,000 median income for the town, Palm Beach boasts 43 billionaire residents from the annual Forbes list. Fittingly, “Billionaire’s Row” is a stretch of oceanfront homes, including Mar a Lago, in the “Estate Section” of the island.
Palm Beach is also home to the five-star luxury oceanfront resort hotel, The Breakers, as well as to many other oceanfront resorts. Shopping districts Worth Avenue and the Royal Poinciana Plaza feature storefronts such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Hermes in addition to a number of restaurants. From $100 million homes to $100,000 condominiums, Palm Beach offers residents every aspect of the South Florida lifestyle.
