Why Palm Beach is a Center of Culture

Norton Museum of Art | 1450 South Dixie Highway

A couple falls in love. That couple falls in love with collecting art. Then they fall in love with Palm Beach. So, they did what anyone with a vast art collection would do: they opened a museum. The aforementioned couple, Ralph and Elizabeth Norton, began the museum in the 1940s, and since then the Norton has grown in size in scope. Over the past two decades, the museum has expanded several times. Most recently, it underwent a renovation that added new galleries to house its American, Chinese, European, and photographic art.

Four Arts Garden | 100 Four Arts Plaza

Take in all the flora Florida has to offer in the verdant splendor of the Four Arts Garden. The Society of the Four Arts—one of Palm Beach’s foremost cultural organizations—owns and operates the gardens, while a local garden club is responsible for day-to-day upkeep. But anyone can visit seven days a week and experience the Spanish-designed buildings, the tranquil fountains, and, of course, the lush plants.

International Polo Club | 3667 120th Avenue South, Wellington

You might even be inspired to take up the sport yourself since the IPC is only 30 minutes away from 3550 South Ocean.
