We've decided where would be a safe, fun place close to the airport area where we could come down on vacation and Palm Beach was our decision on a lot had to factor with the fact that the inlet here in Palm Beach is very safe, inevitable and beautiful Marinas here, great restaurants, the airports 20 minutes away. Um, and we just fell in love with this place where so many great venues to go to festivals to attend. It's just a spectacular place. I really, really enjoy it.
