The barrier island of Palm Beach is one of Florida’s most exclusive areas, with spectacular homes, tony restaurants, and high-end shopping. As a historic area developed in the early 1900s in a grand style, the area is also eminently walkable, with gorgeous, palm-lined boulevards and side streets. Our guide to running in Palm Beach also features numerous great routes in the area, including West Palm Beach just across the Intracoastal waterway, Jupiter just to the north, and south to Lake Worth. We have separate running guides to the Boca Raton area, and Fort Lauderdale/Holywood Beach.
The best places to run in Palm Beach are the nearly 5-mile Lake Trail, and along Flagler Blvd. on the water, just across the bridge in West Palm Beach. We’ve also created ‘runseeing tours’ of Palm Beach’s scenic highlights, the area’s numerous historic districts, and out to the end of the island. Nearby Jupiter, just across the inlet, has some very nice running, as well.
For transportation in this area, there are some buses, but a car is generally needed. Also, be aware of the sun and heat, especially in summer.
