What do you love most about Your City  Palm Beach is a fantastic place to live work and raise a family. Like New York it’s an  island packed with smart people and terrific restaurants. But Palm Beach is unique in  several respects.  First it is the closest spot in the United States to the gulfstream which provides a  surprisingly temperate climate year-round. If you’re an athlete you can swim bike or run  every morning.  Second while it attracts outstanding people it lacks the density of a big city so it’s easy  to go quickly from one place to another. A traffic jam in Palm Beach typically means a few  minutes for the bridge to go down.

Third it combines a small-town feel with global reach. Palm Beach has been the site for  two Winter White Houses serves as the home for dozens of billionaires and is building  world-class institutions including new schools like the ​Greene School ​.
