Best Ways to Travel If You Live in Palm Beach County

By air is just one of the ways you can take a vacation from Palm Beach County.

Being an active adult doesn’t just mean staying active in your community. Whether you’re retired or soon to be, travel is probably something in your future. We’re taking a look at some of the best and most affordable travel options if you live in the popular Palm Beach County.

Palm Beach County runs along the Atlantic Coast of Florida, stretching from Jupiter to Boca Raton. It’s the third-largest county in Florida and the state’s wealthiest. It’s considered part of the Miami metropolitan area.

Whether you’re looking for budget or luxury travel, Palm Beach County provides a number of options. You can fly, drive, or jump on a boat. Spend a day exploring another part of Florida or plan to escape the heat for a few weeks with a late summer vacation. Whatever your travel plans happen to be, you can usually get where you want to go quickly and affordably.  

Take a Drive: Florida Destinations

Interstate 95 goes straight through Palm Beach County making it easy to drive south to Miami or north to Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, or even Georgia. When you’re looking for a road trip that won’t take you too far from home, consider a scenic drive for your staycation. To stay on the coast, take the 30-mile drive from Boca to Palm Beach. You’ll wind along the A1A highway enjoying scenic views and passing the small town known for its trailer homes – Briny Breezes. This drive shows you the Intracoastal waterway, lots of spots to stop and admire the beach, and even some nature with a stretch of road that features towering pine trees.

Other road trip options can include a 90-mile trip to the Everglades, where you can take an airboat ride, look for alligators, or just stop and enjoy the state’s natural beauty. You can visit the other side of the state with a two-and-a-half hour trip to Tampa. From I-95, take FL-417 west, through Orlando. If theme parks aren’t your thing, a stop in Old Town near Kissimmee is a good opportunity to stretch your legs, grab some ice cream, or watch thrill seekers do their bungee jumping.
