Palm Beach Bike Tour
Join us on a leisurely seven-mile bike ride around Old Palm Beach that promises to bring to life this buttoned-down resort enclave that first became famous as a giddy, 1920’s era playground. We will retrace the Old Lake Trail toward the northern tip of the island as we pass under a cooling canopy of native and exotic trees and manicured flora of every hue. Witness the architectural splendor of Addison Mizner’s Mediterranean-revival palaces set amid the backdrop of semi-tropical seclusion. Explore the grandeur of “Whitehall,” railroad baron Henry Flagler’s love-inspired, 55-room, 60,000 square foot wedding gift to his wife. This opulent landmark was singularly responsible for establishing the “Palm Beach Season” for the wealthy of the Gilded Era and every era since.
Ride with us around the breathtaking views of Jupiter Inlet as we double back on the ocean side of the island. Experience how the personalities and stories of prominent families shaped the fabric of this elegant city as you glide by such famous sites as the Kennedy mansion and the Revlon estate. Navigating through the “Styxx,” we will come upon a few of the oldest cottages in town, carefully preserved for history. Be sure not to miss this invigorating ride through time!
