Lake Worth Beach

An easy going enclave worth discovering

"With “Lake and Beach” in its name, it’s a sure bet that Lake Worth Beach offers all the water-soaked fun you’re after on a Florida vacation. This seven-square-mile city is wedged between some of the most action-packed waterways in The Palm Beaches, and its revitalized downtown has its own distinct charms worth discovering.  

The palm-dotted streets of downtown Lake Worth Beach are lined with eclectic boutiques, art galleries, antiques stores and restaurants with plenty of local flavor. Quaint bed-and-breakfasts are tucked into quiet side streets, and there’s even a historic playhouse that hosts everything from ballet to Broadway. Colorful events pack the streets throughout the year including a Lake Worth Beach Street Painting Festival.

Just across Lake Worth Lagoon – a boater’s playground that stretches all the way to West Palm Beach – are postcard-perfect shores, a new fishing pier and restaurants on the beach that afford endless views of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean.

To the west, see a local side of Florida at Lake Osborne. You can fish this well-stocked freshwater lake, with boat launching ramps and fishing piers at John Prince Memorial Park. Or, settle in and stay awhile: there’s a lovely campground complete with volleyball and tennis courts, grills and just about everything else you need to rough it in Palm Beaches style."
