If you have a chance and are in the Palm Beach area for a while, consider taking a course or going to a lecture at the Four Arts. Otherwise just walking in the gardens in this iconic cultural haven is a wonderful experience.

They offer wonderful lectures by nationally known speakers, great concerts, great art exhibits, interesting authors conducting book discussions and on and on. Lovely outdoor garden area to stroll through and learn about native plant species. The pride of Palm Beach!
