Compared to other cities/Boston, NY, Philadelphia, etc...it seems tiny, but not quaint. There are large buildings, but no real skyscrapers, gorgeous views and weather, but with a feeling of being just one step from coming together. As others have said- construction, little shops and cafes- in Winter, it is nice to walk around but not easy. Lots of bars at... More

The city is stretching and yawning and circulation is starting to be felt with the construction on each street corner. Coffee, a quick donut, in and out here we go by the water, running opposite traffic. This time of year is busier than most, but there is no other place where people are friendlier than right here in West Palm.

Missing some of the skyscrapers of other downtowns. But vibrant with galleries, cafes, museums, boutiques, gym, bowling, ice skating, comedy club, and live entertainment Friday and Saturday nights. Coming Dec. 11, Winter Fun Fest and New Year's Eve celebration with taste of the city, and snowfalls.

Very small for a downtown, not a lot of skyscrapers and buildings. However the nightlife and food downtown is some of the best in palm Beach county. Area needs to add more daytime activities, laser tag, fec, mini golf, escape house, go-karting, etc

Downtown West Palm Beach is the perfect place to take a nice walk - that's the way I like to see the area. Great shops in the area, and just a perfect respite, I suppose. It's worth the time now and again to visit this area.

It truly is a beautiful little city that offers all kinds of entertainment and a variety of vey good restaurants. In my opinion, it is best if you find a parking space for your car and spend your time walking and touring through the quaint shops, restaurants and waters edge.

It is like any strip mall in america in anywhere america. Nothing cultural. Nothing exciting. Nothing stands out. I wouldn't go here unless I had to.

Clematis Street is full of restaurants and shops, as well as clubs for night life. There is also a free trolley that can shuttle you to City Place.
