A Complete Guide to the Island


The island of Palm Beach is known as a winter retreat for the wealthy and the famous, but all year round it is a town full of wonderfully fun things to do and see, from shopping along legendary Worth Avenue to hitting the beautiful beaches, from riding a bike to searching for the best espresso martini, from joining a spooky ghost walk to relaxing in a stunning sculpture garden. 

Palm Beach: A Complete Guide to the Island covers all of this and more. Written by a well-known author who is also a local resident, the book offers everything you need to know to have fun and enjoy this famous and exclusive island.

A Year in Palm Beach

“A love story.”

“A book for baby boomers looking

Life in an Alternate Universe

This book is an adventure, a memoir, a love story, and a coming-of-age book for baby boomers. On a whim, the authors move to Palm Beach for one year. What begins as a playful adventure turns into a life-changing event. This wise book shows it is not the stuff we have but how we live our life that is important.

You will find out about wonderful restaurants, bars, shops, beaches, sports, art galleries, happy hours, museums, activities, historical sights, spas, and more. There are also seven original walks designed to help you fully explore the island. 

Whether you want to walk the island, enjoy a leisurely brunch, paddle board with your dog, shop until you drop, wander through art galleries, relax with a massage, or dine under the stars, this book is for you.

Note: This book is only on the island of Palm Beach. West Palm Beach is not included.

In the style of Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence and Frances Mayes’ Under the Tuscan Sun, this book shows that sometimes a move to a new location can also mean a move to a new and better place in your life.

As the authors’ year unfolds, they also provide a finely-painted portrait of Palm Beach, from the mega yachts, mansions, and millionaires to laws that forbid dogs from barking or dictate the height of one’s lawn. The authors swap stories with Jimmy Buffett, kick soccer balls with Rod Stewart, and have cocktails with monkeys on a yacht.

This remarkable book gives readers the chance to live a fun, adventure-filled year in Palm Beach and to see how one couple came to find out what was most important to them and how they wanted to live the rest of their life.
