Wow! Downtown West Palm is so upscale, it's unlike any other big city's downtown that I've seen on here. Completely grit-free.

Also finally nice to see another Florida city other than Miami or Orlando. I was trying to convince people that there were other cities in Florida, but many had their doubts.

Lol thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos. West Palm is certainly an awesome city, it has two entertainment centers, City Place, and Clematis street. But dont be fooled, there are some gritty areas.

The one thing that amazes me about Florida is that there ARE so many cities to choose from. Just 40 minutes South of West Palm is a larger city known as Ft Luaderdale, which is also incredibly beautiful. And an hour west of Miami on the Gulf Coast is Naples, a very ritzy beautiful city, and 30 minutes north of that is Ft Myers, another hour or so north of that is Sarasota which is about 2 hours away from the Tampa-St Petersburgh area, all wonderful cities.

Here are some pics of West Palm including Clematis Street.

This is Philips Point, its one of my favorite WPB towers. Hope you guys dont mind the photo shoping.


And this is Philips Point in color




Good Progress on City Plaza which is visble here from Flagler Dr.


And here are two pics of Clematis Street, if you ever go to WPB this is the place to go.





When I left I noticed this sign in the parking garage, someone spray painted a mohawk onto the sign, lol

Its not completely grit free these pictures are great because they only show the nice areas but it doesn't paint the real picture of West Palm Beach. You're from Orlando and your downtown is much nicer and lively than West Palm Beach is.

Cityplace is great...we always drive up to the Imax there to see the really good movies. It never gets packed and WPB is generally clean.

There's also a diner we enjoy going to there called 'Perkins'....the service is unbeatable.
