Beauty of the Breakers

The Breakers might be called a hotel. It could be called a resort. But really The Breakers is an experience in American history and culture. The gorgeous hotel that stands today was built in 1926 after fire destroyed the previous building.

The ceilings in the mail lobby and first-floor public rooms were painted by 75 artisans who were brought from Italy. The entire building is modeled after the Villa Medici in Rome, and it is a site to behold. Even if you aren't staying a night at the hotel, it is a focal point of Palm Beach and should be checked off any tourist's list.

Utrip Tips

*Need an excuse to stick around? Grab a drink at HMS or treat yourself in the spa. They're both open to the public, but you'll probably want to make a reservation ahead of time.
