The Top 10 Reasons to Buy Property on the Island of Palm Beach

By Jeff Lichtenstein

Palm Beach is a great place to vacation and an even better place to live. Below I give you my Top 10 Reasons for choosing the island of Palm Beach as your permanent residence or second home.

  1. There are no income taxes in the state of Florida.
  2. It’s 70 degrees in January. When your friends are stuck in New York City all winter, you can send them pictures of your feet buried in the sand with the ocean in the background. If you have a spare bedroom, your friends will probably invite themselves down for a long weekend. Can you blame them?
  3. The lake trail. This beautiful 5-mile walking/biking path stretches along the Intracoastal Waterway from Royal Palm Way to the inlet at the northern-most point on the island. Residents and visitors walk, run, and bike past some of the prettiest homes on the island.
  4. The beach. The beach is never more than a 5-minute walk from anywhere on the island of Palm Beach.
  5. Walkability. Between Royal Palm Way and Worth Avenue is a 5-block stretch of real estate that has some of the best restaurants and shopping on Palm Beach. Speaking of restaurants…
  6. World class restaurants. Residents of Palm Beach have access to world famous chefs, and up-and-coming award winners. We might not have the quantity of restaurants as New York City, but we certainly have the quality.
  7. It’s a great long-term investment. Palm Beach will always be a highly desirable place to live or have a second home. Assuming you buy your property at fair market value or better (which is what I’m here for), your investment is safe on Palm Beach.
  8. The ice cream sundae at Palm Beach Grill. Is a dessert a legitimate reason to buy property on the island of Palm Beach? If you have to ask, you clearly have not experienced the sundae at Palm Beach Grill. Yes… it is just that good.
  9. Great shopping on Worth Avenue. Ralph Lauren, Jimmy Choo, Cartier, Brooks Brothers, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and the famous brand names go on and on. There is a reason that Worth Avenue is one of the most famous streets in the world. After a day of shopping, make sure to stop at Island Company for free drinks at their in-store bar. They have a variety of flavored rums, but alas, they limit the free drinks to 2 per customer.
  10. Palm Beach is only 10 minutes away from Palm Beach International Airport. No matter where you’re flying in from, Palm Beach is easy to get to.

Next month I’ll tell you my Top 10 Restaurants on the island of Palm Beach and what to order at each one.
