While looking for the new-age sophistication in shopping centers and world-class restaurants think of the old-world West Panama Beach. What today serves for modern entertainments once was fabulous mansions and historic homes for early settlers.
Juan Ponce de Leon was the first new comer in 1513. Since the area was settled, it thrived under Spanish rule till America purchased it for $5 million. Nevertheless, West Palm Beach was anything but prosperous and instead was referred to as unusablel swampland. The change happened when the oil giant, Henry Morrison Flagler found this land can be very tourist-orientated in future and built in the area two grand hotels. The idea didn't initially catch on and Flager initiated the railroad in the city and spanned a bridge over the St John's River.
This is how West Palm Beach began treading the path toward becoming a chic destination. From swampland to the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway lined with luxury yachts in private ownership, West Palm Beach is home to the largest art festivals and music events in Florida along with interesting museums and galleries.
