Hey y’all! I am sorry that I haven’t posted in this area over the past 2 weeks. My family came to visit here to Orlando for vacation for a week. After they left, we came down with a terrible sinus infection. I didn’t want to half-ass any of these posts, so I decided to just wait until I felt better.
I cannot believe that June is already here! And The Pink Retreat is only TWO WEEKS AWAY! So much to do, so little time. Today I am going to cover some activities in the Palm Beach area that you can do if you have some free time over the weekend! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out my blog posts on free activities, transportation, where to eat, and where to shop for Lilly!
Let’s get into some of the paid activities in the area!
On The Island
While The Colony offers free bikes for guests, other hotels do offer them for an extra charge. The Chesterfield offers bikes through an outside company for $24/day. Bikes at The Brazilian Court are $15/hr, $26/half day, and $39/full day – they offer Lilly Pulitzer bikes! There is also a little bike shop near Publix that offers rentals called Palm Beach Bicycle Trail Shop. They also offer scooters and electric bikes.
Boating & Fishing
The Colony offers services to set up half day and full day boating/fishing charters. I am sure any hotel would also have a great recommendations on boating companies in the area.
The Colony offers spa and salon services that come right to your room! Speak to the front desk for more details. There is a salon and spa at The Brazilian Court as well, open from 9am-6pm and closed on Sundays. If you’re looking for an unforgettable spa experience, head over to The Spa at The Breakers, open 8am-8pm every day.
The Flagler Museum is a great place to visit if you’re interested in history, architecture, or design. Tickets are $18 per adult and they offer guided tours throughout the day; see the time guide HERE. This is a great way to spend a few hours learning about local history and viewing the priceless pieces of art the museum has to offer.
Off The Island
For $12 you can get a roundtrip ticket on the water taxi to Peanut Island. Peanut Island is a great place to swim in the ocean, snorkel (equipment available for rent), and just relax. Learn more about the water taxi and hours here.
Palm Beach Zoo
Visit the Palm Beach Zoo, open daily from 9am – 5pm. Entry is $24.95 per adult. On Saturday, June 22nd there will be an Elton John tribute band performing from 6:30pm-9pm, and they will be serving alcohol 😉
This is a bit of a drive, but for someone who wants to see it it’s worth it. Admission to the Jupiter Lighthouse and museum costs $12 per person and is open Tuesday-Sunday. Admission includes an optional guided tour at 11am or 2pm.
I wouldn’t normally put something like this in, but I know some have plans to go to CityPlace (Rosemary Square). There is a great movie theatre right in CityPlace! It might be fun for Saturday night – get some dinner & drinks, then head into a movie.
Palm Beach Improv
Also located in CityPlace (Rosemary Square) is Palm Beach Improv, a comedy club! Ticket prices vary and there are new performers every few nights. However, I will tell you in advance there is a 2 drink minimum!
Well y’all, that’s all I have for today! I hope you enjoy some of my recommendations for paid activities in the area. While I know most of us have a busy weekend, I wanted to include some ideas for those of you who may not be attending all of the events or that might be staying before or after the retreat. I cannot wait to see y’all in just a few short weeks! Don’t forget to download/print the PDFs on my guides so far to take with you. Next week I will be making one large PDF for y’all to print and enjoy!
