Palm Beach: Full of history & manicured beauty

The island of Palm Beach is the exclusive winter home of billionaires. For the rest of us, it’s a fun place to gawk at mansions and their ficus hedges sculpted into works of art. The town is full of history, too, from Henry Flagler to JFK.

Key West chickens: Noisy, colorful, just like Key West

2015 sea-turtle walks: One of Florida’s natural thrills

Sea-turtle walks are like seeing a National Geographic film in person. But you need reservations to join these night-time beach walks to watch giant sea turtles nesting. May is the best time to book a turtle walk because many programs fill up immediately.

Caladesi Island: Kayak to a wild beach

Caladesi Island State Park, off the coast of Clearwater and Dunedin, has been called the best beach in America. What’s even better? Kayaking to Caladesi and seeing wonderful wildlife along the way.
