Forbes Travel Guide’s 18 Top Destinations Of 2018 has ranked the Palm Beaches of Florida No. 4 on the illustrious list. The magazine cited the 47 miles of sandy beaches and abundance of cultural attractions as some of the best reasons to visit.
Forbes says the 39 cities and towns “draw you in” and we couldn’t agree more. The Norton Museum and its new expansion was acclaimed by Forbes as a valuable asset to the area. The Warehouse District’s culinary variety and the Grandview Public Market food hall caught the attention of the esteemed list-maker as more cause to take a Palm Beach County holiday.
Upcoming attractions such as pro-surfer Kelly Slater’s 80-acre wave park, and surf school (set to open in 2019) helped to set the area apart from other locations around the world.
Accessibility was highlighted for ranking the Palm Beaches too. Forbes noted Brightline’s 30-minute trips to Fort Lauderdale and anticipated express rides to Miami as a further way to enjoy more of South Florida along with a Palm Beach vacation.
The coveted 18 spots on Forbes List were lead by Sydney, Australia. The famed Sydney Opera House made a grand reopening on New Year’s Day 2018 after an incredible seven-month rehab which improved acoustics, lighting and more.
Sydney may be number one on Forbes World list, but the Palm Beaches are certainly number one in our hearts.
