A mecca for shopping, Worth Avenue's also a spectacle in and of itself. Elegantly arrayed in European-accented architecture, the Palm Beach village between Lake Worth and the Atlantic Ocean has a long history as a resort destination. Its oldest stores date back to the 1920s, when the four-block avenue became an anchor of Palm Beach's growing appeal as a swanky jetsetter's getaway.
Many of the shops featured on Worth Avenue are high end department stores or designer boutiques, but you'll find a full range or shops with everything down to custom couture for your dog.
If dropping a few pretty pennies in boutique stores such as Gucci, Tiffany's, and Ralph Lauren isn't really your thing--or you just need a break from the shopping--Worth Avenue's "worth" it for its overall mien and heritage. In the winter, guided walking tours introduce you to the district's history: a good way to get to know this glossy Palm Beach landmark's rich backstory.
