Today I want to take you around the most instagrammable places in Palm Beach. I've lived in Palm Beach for 3 months and this is my TOP 10 list that I've researched so you don't have to! These are also the iconic, must-see places in Palm let's go!

Most Instagrammable Places in Palm Beach

First one on our list:

1. Sloan’s Ice Cream

If you aesthetic is Pink, this is going to be your paradise!! Sloan’s Ice Cream has several locations but very first was opened in 1999 in Palm. Beach! Like everything at Sloan’s, the décor is over the top with pink walls, twinkling chandeliers, moving trains and magical glass bathrooms. You will have a lot of photo ops here and you can also enjoy amazing ice cream. afterwards! The heavenly aromas of freshly baked waffle cones, cookies and brownies are irresistible. An entire wall of bulk candy, fabulous chocolates, chocolate apples, whimsical gifts and fluffy friends surround you.

2. The Colony Hotel

To continue with our “pink theme”, let’s go to the hotel that is also known as “The Pink Paradise”.

Not only is this the Palm Beach’s pinkest hotel…. Colony Hotel has it’s own, exclusive shade of pink called the “Colony Pink”! To quote the current owner Sarah Wetenhall, “The exterior in ‘Colony Pink’ is an exclusive color, and we worked on getting the exact right shade that will hopefully not fade with sun and salt and will look as beautiful and vibrant in person as she will on film,”

But don’t think that only the pink exterior is photo worthy..check until the see the interior and have a glass of Rosé by the pool.

While you are there, maybe you will be lucky enough to get to meet one of Palm Beach’s celebrities and the Colony’s Mascot - Johnnie Brown! He likes to eat bananas in the silk-lined sombrero that was created for him by Addison Mizner, the famous architect who designed the Everglades Club. In the 1920s, he could be spotted in the heart of town on Addison’s shoulder. (He is a spider monkey who likes to socialize!) Did you know that he once ran to be the mayor of Palm Beach? I know for sure that he would get my vote!

3. Walking distance from The Colony Hotel, you can find Worth Avenue Clock Tower. I recommend to come here at Sunset as you can take some breathtaking and romantic shots. While in the area, make sure to walk around Worth Avenue, which is said to be is one of the most beautiful shopping venues in the country. The Avenue’s romantic vias and celebrated boutiques offer the best of resort and designer fashion, gifts, art, antiques, jewelry, fine and casual dining.

They say, if you haven't been to Worth Avenue...You haven't been to Palm Beach! Right there, you can also find the legendary Ta-boo Restaurant that drew the likes of John F. Kennedy, Frank Sinatra, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and other celebrities.

The bistro became the center for a trove of tales and anecdotes, ranging from one about the German submarine commander who came ashore for a couple of drinks during World War II, to the claim that the Bloody Mary was concocted one morning by a bartender at Ta-boo, at the request of Barbara Hutton for a soothing drink after a night of partying.

4. The Breakers Hotel

If I had to pick one place that is the most instagrammable in Palm Beach, it would definitely be The Breakers Hotel! First known as The Palm Beach Inn, the original hotel was opened on January 16, 1896, by business tycoon Henry Flagler to accommodate travelers on his Florida East Coast Railway.

This hotel is a historic, Renaissance Revival style luxury hotel and literally everywhere you look is just purely beautiful and lavish!

5. The Square

Our next stop is The Square (formerly known as Rosemary Square and CityPlace) , which is an upscale lifestyle center in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida, along South Rosemary Avenue. Considered a New Urbanist mixed-use development, The Square is architecturally composed of Mediterranean and Venetian elements. The 600,000-square-foot (56,000 m2)-center contains more than 60 restaurants and stores, as well as rental apartments, condos, and offices. You will find a lot of cute spots to take your photos and videos there, like the colorful stairs, Harriet Himmel Theater, fountains and maybe get to enjoy some of the Live entertainment if you come on a weekend night. If you are a big coffee lover like me , make sure to visit Pura Vida and snap some photos there as well!

6. Waterfront

To get some ocean and city views, take a walk along waterfront where you will find many piers and docks. The City's public docks are free and open to the public. If you happen to be here on 3rd Sunday of the Month, make sure to attend Sunday on the Waterfront event! This monthly concert series provides an ideal setting for good times and great entertainment. Listen to the hottest acts around against the spectacular waterfront backdrop. This is a perfect weekend outing and a fantastic way to relax and unwind with friends and family on a Sunday afternoon. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs, kick off your flip flops, and sway to the tunes on the West Palm Beach Waterfront.

Every 2nd Friday of the month Screen on the Green transforms the West Palm Beach Waterfront into a theater under the stars. Enjoy family-friendly movies featuring both classic films and newer flicks from the spectacular vantage of the waterfront.

My favorite view is from South Cove on Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach. Visitors can stroll down a 556-foot boardwalk that extends to one of three mangrove islands within the Lake Worth Lagoon. Six acres of restored wetlands support local fisheries, wading birds, manatees, and sea turtles.

Now that we’ve seen the top instagrammable places in Palm Beach, let me show you some bonus locations!

7. Four Arts Gardens

A green oasis in the middle of the Four Arts Campus, The Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden and Four Arts Botanical Gardens have provided a world-class garden experience to visitors of the Palm Beaches since 1938. Explore the beautiful works and wonders of renowned sculpture artists, magnificent floral paths, ponds and fountains in a tropical oasis of two distinct and unique gardens. The garden is open seven days a week from 10 AM to 5 PM and the admission is free of charge

8. Norton Museum of Art

For our art lovers, a perfect location is Norton Museum of Art. Its collection includes over 8,200 works, with a concentration in European, American, and Chinese art as well as in contemporary art and photography. In 2003, it overtook the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, in Sarasota, and became the largest museum in Florida

9. Murals

The many magnificent murals of Florida’s Cultural Capital tell a story of The Palm Beaches through vibrant color. Whether you’re looking for the perfect selfie background or want to plan your own mural tour, here are some of my favorites, but you can find a lot of them just walking around the city.

10. Flagler Museum, Palm Beach Town Hall & The Church of Bethesda-By-The Sea
