Last week the Post’s Frank Cerabino ranked all the cities in Palm Beach County. Based on Cerabino’s top ten picks, we asked our Post readers ‘what is your favorite city,’ and the results are in!
You all agreed with Cerabino…with a total of 490 votes, West Palm Beach was the readers’ choice winner! Other favorites were Delray Beach, with 381 votes and Jupiter with 379 votes.
Here’s why Cerabino picked West Palm Beach as the top city in Palm Beach County:
Reason for ranking: West Palm Beach is the center of gravity in Palm Beach County. And not just because it has the zoo, the county courthouse, convention center and the only county stop on the yet-to-be-built All Aboard Florida route. West Palm Beach has led the way with the arts — with the Kravis Center, Palm Beach Dramaworks and SunFest — and figured out that nurturing public space, even if it’s just a big fountain that kids can play in, is really important. It’s a city of muraled walls, rental-bike stations, and an ever-changing roster of trendy dining spots and re-invented neighborhoods.
