Making the list is The Thompson, a new hotel on the once-again-fashionable northern end of Miami Beach. The retro beach chic look of the pet-friendly hotel is meant to remind us of the ’50’s, when the neighborhood was the the hang-out of the Rat Pack. There’s even a Carmen Miranda suite. Michelle Bernstein, the former chef at the Omphoy (now Eau Palm Beach) helms the kitchen at the hotel’s Seagrape restaurant.
Another hotel on the list has a Palm Beach connection, although it’s located a thousand or so miles south. The Playa Grande Beach Club on the Dominican Republic’s north shore was designed by Celerie Kemble, who grew up in Palm Beach and whose mother, Mimi McMakin, is the founder of Kemble Interiors. Designed in a colonial style with gingerbread fretwork, copper soaking tubs and a soft pastel palette, the nine bungalows were created to look like they’d been around for decades, Kemble has said.
The list includes other new hotels in the Carolinas, Virginia and Savannah.
Stock up on sunscreen and dig out the beach towels. Spring break is busting out all over Florida this month. College students from the East Coast and Midwest have begun their annual coastal invasion while Palm Beach County public school students are off from Friday, March 18 until Monday, March 28.
Whether you’re staycationing or visiting, there are plenty of options to fill sunny days (although we Floridians may require wet suits for frigid ocean temperatures still in the low 70s).
Here are the best beaches, waterfront bars and things to do in Palm Beach County for Spring Break 2016:
A few weeks ago we wrote about why we love the beach so much. And we polled our readers on which beach in Palm Beach County was their favorite. With 283 votes out of 540, Lake Worth Municipal Beach won!
It’s no wonder why. From Benny’s on the Beach to a beloved pier, from an Olympic-size pool to modern monkey bars that kids will have to be pulled away from, this beach park has more to offer than just grains of sand.
If you go: Lake Worth Municipal Beach: 10 S. Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth; 561-533-7395; $2 per hour for parking.
If you’re looking for a day at the beach, but without all the crowds, two Palm Beach County destinations were listed as two of the best options in the state.
Thrillist compiled a list of the “Best beaches in Florida without crowds” with Palm Beach County’s Juno Beach and John D. MacArthur State Park coming in at numbers four and six. The top ten also included: Caladesi Island State Park, Blowing Rocks Preserve, Captiva Island, Amelia Island, Cayo Costa State Park, Playalinda, Ponte Vedra Beach, and Boca Grande.
According to the list, Juno Beach was ranked highly for its excellent surfing and for being the county’s “most dog-friendly stretch of sand and most densely nested turtle-nesting beach in the world from May through October.” They also recommend visiting the Square Grouper Tiki Bar in Jupiter, which was listed as one of our favorite local beach bars for Spring Break.
John D. MacArthur State Park was favored for its array of animal life with manatees and the zebra longwing butterfly being seen around the territory. The report also remarks that the state park features a two-mile stretch of sand with very few swimmers.
