This tour explores the historic contribution made by Henry Morrison Flagler, as we drive to the house he had built for his wife, Mary Lily. "Whitehall" has been proclaimed as "more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world". Known as the "Flagler Museum", you'll explore the estate, and stroll the beautiful grounds, and even step inside Flagler's personal railroad car.
Next, you will be guided through the famous Breakers Hotel. Originally the site of Flagler's "Palm Beach Inn", which was often requested where guests could watch "the breakers" of the ocean.
Inside, you may select to visit the oceanfront "Seafood Bar". It has be refurbished to resemble the interior of a large super-yacht! Stay and have lunch here, or choose any restaurant you like. Finally, shop on Worth Avenue as time permits

Steven B picked us up from our cruise ship in Miami and drove us to the Palm Beach area. He provided very useful information along the way and then interesting sights in the various areas in and around Palm Beach. The estates and mansions were amazing. We visited the historic Flagler Museum and learned so much about Mr. Flagler and his profound influence on the development of Florida. We visited the extraordinary hotel, Breakers, and we enjoyed a seaside lunch at the wonderful Seafood Bar. Amazing day!
