Two weeks ago Preston and I took a long weekend trip to Palm Beach and then a day trip to Miami. This is seriously one of my very favorite places to travel and has been for as long as I can remember. Palm beach is so unbelievably beautiful and there is so much to do! We kept this trip pretty low key: hung by the pool, explored, ate out and watched the Masters. Although I still thought it would be fun to share a recap of our trip and a few of our favorite spots. I’ve put together this mini travel guide featuring where we stayed, where to eat and what to do. I’m also including everything I wore + all of my outfit details below each photo!
Where we stayed?
My Nana lives in West Palm Beach and was sweet enough to let us crash at her newly renovated home. We stay with her every time we are in town- I just love spending time with her and getting to visit her sweet self!! I definitely don’t get to see her enough! Sorry if this isn’t much help to those of you looking to visit, but I stay with her every single time I’m there.
Where to eat.
Little Havana: This neighborhood was recommended to us a handful of times. Apparently the coolest area with incredible authentic Cuban food + shops. We unfortunately ran out of time and weren’t able to make it over there, but it’s definitely on our list for next time.
Baoli: Such a cool spot!!! Perfect for a date night or bachelorette party. This place is on the pricey side but is worth the splurge for the incredible experience and delicious eats!
Bice Ristorante: Yummy Italian food! The outside of the restaurant is so cute for photos.
Buccan: A MUST!! Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time.
Cafe Boulud: Super cute restaurant inside of The Brazilian Court Hotel!
Ta-Boo: Located on Worth Avenue. We stopped here for a bite to eat while shopping! The decor inside is absolutely stunning!!
What to do.
The Design District: This was by far the coolest part of Miami. The Design District is filled with the most amazing architecture, lots of art, incredible shopping, restaurants + more! We even stumbled upon a pop-up concert… Wish we could have stayed here longer!!
South Beach: We hung out at South Beach for a majority of our day trip to Miami. This is a super upscale part of town that you have to experience for yourself. We had so much fun hanging by the pool, strolling the beach, and exploring the area.
SHOP TILL YA DROP: No, but seriously. Palm Beach has the absolute best shopping and I was in complete Heaven. My favorite spots are the Gardens Mall and Worth Avenue (for window shopping, because I can’t afford anything there…ha!)
Beach + Pool: This is a given, but Palm Beach has some of the most incredible beaches and pools. The weather was unreal during our trip and we were sure to soak up all the rays!!
Take Photos: Palm Beach is seriously so picturesque and there is truly a photo op around every corner. The area around Worth Avenue is probably one of my favorite places to shoot photos. There you will find some of the cutest neighborhoods and the most beautiful flower covered walls!
