Established as a luxury vacation destination for the rich and famous in the early 1900s, Palm Beach is synonymous with old-world glamour and new world sophistication. In this exquisite volume, longtime visitor Pamela Fiori shares with readers the heritage of this tropical paradise. From its world-renowned resorts, dreamy estates, and flashy cars to its endless shopping opportunities and impeccable golf courses, In the Spirit of Palm Beach presents a full spectrum of everything the island can offer.

An insider s guide featuring Fiori s selection of hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops completes the book.
