The apogee of resort style thrives in this classic society enclave, and finds its epicenter along three shaded blocks of Worth Avenue—a mind-expanding parade of world-renowned boutiques and colorful local labels.
Add to this potent cocktail the home design, furniture, and decorating emporiums that line West Palm Beach's Dixie Highway, just a woven clutch's throw across the bridge, and you'll see why this destination is positively intoxicating.

One of Worth Avenue's great charms is its narrow, curving walkways (called "vias") that meander off the main drag. On Via Mizner, this bright boutique reflects a knowing curation of Palm Beach prep and island-boho chicness; cjlaingshop.com.
