It's easy to understand West Palm Beach's appeal.

Whether you're a professional on the move, part of a growing family, or an empty-nester seeking a vacation home, West Palm Beach real estate runs the gamut.
There's always something to do in this vibrant city; West Palm Beach is known as a shopping destination. The Clematis Street District is home to eclectic boutiques, bars, nightclubs and eateries, and the city's waterfront offers the perfect setting to browse. Upscale shops abound in the 72-acre CityPlace development. Nestled in the heart of downtown, CityPlace houses more than 80 shops and eateries, as well as an IMAX theater, a comedy club, a dinner theater and a restored church from the early 20th century that serves as a center for culture and the arts.
And speaking of the arts, West Palm Beach is home to the Norton Museum of Art, a distinguished institution that houses a permanent collection of more than 7,000 works of art from the Americas, Europe and China, with pieces by luminaries such as Gauguin, Miro, Picasso and O'Keefe. The Society of the Four Arts offers sculpture gardens, libraries, galleries and exhibitions. The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens feature pieces by the noted local artist, set in her historic home and on lushly landscaped grounds. Also set in an historic building, the Armory Art Center offers art instruction and galleries.
Other local cultural centers include the Henry M. Flager Museum, a 75-room mansion that served as the home of railway magnate Henry Flager during the Gilded Age. The Palm Beach Maritime Museum brings the region's rich sea-going past to life, while the Ragtops Museum is a classic auto-lover's dream.

Kravis Center for the Performing Arts encompasses 10 acres and offers four venues that together host about 800 plays, musical performances, lectures and events per year.
