Prospect Park Homes Walk, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach FL

Description

West Palm Beach is lovely because of its historical buildings. To see some of the homes from the 1920s and their unusual architecture, take a stroll in the Prospect Park- Monceaux neighborhood. Here you will feel happy as you walk along palm-lined streets taking in the tropical flowers and the pretty details of the homes. There are gothic windows and all kinds of fun architecture. After your walk, relax a while at small George S. Petty Park and enjoy the views of the intracoastal waterway.

While in the area, walk to Barcelona Rd and check out the tropical paradise (interspersed with large ominous sculptures) that is the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden
