Brazilian Ave and Pan's Garden walk, Palm Beach, Palm Beach FL

Description

Palm Beach is a barrier island with one of the highest concentrations of wealth in the US. It's wonderful to walk the side streets between the intracoastal and the ocean. One of my favorite streets is Brazilian Ave. It's blissful to walk along it past hibiscus flowers, bougainvillea, coconut trees, tall hedges, and mansions, down to the sea. Duck into the courtyard of the yellow Brazilian Court Hotel to see its lush garden. As you head toward the beach you will come across the Memorial Fountain Plaza with its pool, seahorse fountain, arbors, and flowerpots. The beach here, Midtown Beach, has pale beige sand and a good-looking youthful crowd (rare in Florida).
Make your walk as long as you want, checking out all the side streets (Australian Ave, Chilean Ave, and Peruvian Ave) until you get to Worth Ave, a fancy shopping street.
On the corner of Chilean Ave and Hibiscus Ave, you will find Pan's Garden, a small gated garden with a pond, a 1920s tile wall from the Casa Apava estate, and a sculpture of the Greek god Pan playing a flute. It's a sweet little spot to chill out on a bench with your love.
