Sunshine, Beaches, amusement parks! West Palm Beach, Florida has everything to attract people from other states and countries. Every day here feels like a summer day. We're one of the most known cities in the world. This is because we tend to take care of our city, show it off and love to live in it. I was born and raised in such a paradise-setting environment. This city is also very helpful. Anything you need is literally right around the corner. People love to visit for vacation! I can't see myself living anywhere else. This is my home.

West Palm Beach is not only a great tourist destination, but it is also a wonderful place to live. There is so much to do here! Within a 10 mile radius you have the beach, the outlets, restaurants, bowling, and occasionally concerts green markets. It makes you appreciate where you live and all the fun activities you can take part in throughout the week or even during the weekend. I have never lived anywhere besides here and it's safe to say that out of all the places I've visited, there is no place like home.
WPB is a beautiful place to live and vacation! With exceptional weather practically year round, and the beach just a few miles away, what's not to love! There are many local tourist attractions, fine dining, nightlife, and also great beaches to explore. I've lived here for several years and I am still finding new places to go.
