Sunrise Ave, Palm Beach Island

Palm Beach, FL

Sunrise Ave, near N. County Rd, is a pretty area of Palm Beach Island. Here, as you look down the street, you see the beautiful architecture of the yellow Biltmore apartments. On the street corner is St. Edward Catholic Church, lovely to admire from the side (see the cylindrical hedges) and from the front (cross County Rd to get a good view). After a mass, pop inside to see its stained glass and dark interior. The nativity scene, out on the lawn on N. County Rd, is very deluxe at Christmastime. 
On the other corner of the intersection, Paramount, which was formerly a movie theater, is a 1920s building with little awnings and a dome. Along the entry hall, check out the old movie posters and props- it is quite a weird sight! Green's Pharmacy, also across the street from St. Edwards Church, is a famous spot for a malt or sandwich but it has quite a tired interior. It has toys and supplies you might need on your vacation. Amici Market, next door to it, also has a tired, crowded interior, but some say has good lemon bars and other baked goods. 
Have a chocolate croissant, or quiche and orangina, at Patrick Leze (good pastries but a super rude lady) a few steps west of St. Edward Catholic Church.  
Enjoy the architecture of the Palm Beach Synagogue one street south on Sunset Ave, also on the corner of N. County Rd. One more street south is the amazing area of Via Flagler shops.
Walk along Sunrise Ave 300m east and you're at Sunset Ave Beach! You can find a public beach access at the end of Root Trail. From Sunset Ave Beach, take a 1-mile stroll on the sand to the main beach, Midtown Beach
Or, instead of going to the beach, walk west on Sunrise Ave, right on Bradley Pl, and left on Park Ave to the intracoastal and have a magical walk up the N. Lake Trail. You can walk for three miles to the top of the island on a wide paved trail, along the intracoastal waterway, and it is quite shady in the morning.
Or, on a cold winter day, if you don't want to be outside, get a pastry at Patrick Leze, then drive north for six minutes and park your car at 760 N. Ocean Blvd, where you can watch the ocean from your car while eating your pastry!
