How to get ready for Fall in Palm Beach Gardens

Fall is right around the corner and while the palm trees may not change color, there’s no better place to be than Palm Beach Gardens. The cooler temperatures and lower humidity make fall the perfect time to enjoy autumn activities, and you’re never more than a few minutes away from something the whole family will enjoy. From sweater shopping to snorkeling, from golf courses to breweries, the only question is, what do you want to do first? 

So, grab your Pumpkin Spiced Latté (iced, of course) and get ready for fall in Palm Beach Gardens. 

Get Outside

Fall brings with it a whole host of things to enjoy, from apple pies and fall flavors to football and Halloween. But, without a doubt, the best part of fall in Florida is a reprieve from the 100 degree temperatures and high humidity. Now that going outside doesn’t feel like walking into a furnace, it’s the best time to get out there and enjoy all that Palm Beach Gardens has to offer. 

Blue Heron Bridge

No matter what type of diving you’re interested in, Blue Heron Bridge has it. From muck diving to shore diving, Blue Heron is often touted as the best diving in the Americas.

Delray Beach

If art and culture is more your scene, go no further than Delray Beach. With outdoor concerts and art galleries, this quaint beach town is highlighted by murals in the streets and a great restaurant on every corner. 

Golfing

There’s a reason Palm Beach is considered the golf capital of Florida. There are more than 160 different golf courses, from the legendary PGA National Resort & Spa, to The Champion, a course designed by Jack Nicklaus.

Shopping

Shopping is a special experience in Palm Beach Gardens. Home to the wide concourses and exquisitely maintained grounds of some of the best outdoor malls in the country, a seasoned shopper would be remiss to go through fall without visiting. 

The Gardens Mall

With every name brand you can think of, The Gardens Mall has everything you need to get into fall fashion. From a new sweater from Brooks Brothers, to a new handbag from the Kate Spade autumn collection, The Gardens Mall is sure to scratch that shopping itch. 

The Royal Poinciana Plaza

The Royal Poinciana Plaza is a unique shopping experience. Designed by John Volk, it’s a perfect example of Palm Beach style. Organized around two courtyard gardens, the Plaza is sure to delight the eye and the shopper alike.

Antique Row

If you’re more interested in history than shopping malls, you can’t miss Antique Row. A district in West Palm Beach, it’s home to more than 40 shops, with selections of 17th to 20th century antiques.

Pretend It’s Fall

Fall is a unique experience in Florida. It may not be the quintessential leaves changing, pumpkin carving, and flannel experience that you see on television, but that’s not a bad thing. Just because it doesn’t drop to 40 degrees once it hits November, doesn’t mean you can’t have a wonderful season. 

Enjoy a Festival

Few things say ‘Fall’ more than craft festivals. It’s a good thing there are so many coming up! From a Marine Arts Festival to a traditional Japanese Fall Lantern Festival, there are plenty of activities to enjoy during the upcoming fall season.

Breweries

Breweries have become all the rage these past few years, and for good reason. They’re a blast! So, check out some seasonal beers and don’t forget to find one with outdoor seating, such as West Palm Brewery and Wine Vault.

Seasonal Fall Food

Fall food in Florida doesn’t mean pumpkin pie and apple cobbler. It means stone crab and red snapper! So, check out Cod and Capers, a fish market and café specializing in locally sourced fish.
