Are there any new restaurants or other spots in your market you’ve been loving lately?

Yes, Palm Beach has more restaurants opening this year than any year in the past. LoLa 41 from Nantucket, Almond from Bridgehampton, Shifty’s from NYC, and a new location for Italian dining, Trevini.

It’s time for spring break. What is a fun activity in your market?

One of Palm Beach’s best activities is going to the beach. Lucky for us, we can go to the beach at any time of the year! We find that spring breakers love the beach too! With our influx in population from 10,000 to +30,000 in season, the beach is a hot spot, along with delicious al fresco dining and the beautiful Vias of Worth Avenue.
