Going to the beach is a must when visiting West Palm Beach. And if you are on your way there, make sure to check out the entrance of Worth Avenue. Right there you will find the Clock Tower, a landmark surrounded by palm trees and with the Atlantic Ocean lying behind. It is the perfect spot to take pictures with friends and family and also, it is the perfect place for a date, especially during the sunset.
The clock was destroyed in 1930 due to a hurricane and the reconstruction was part of a $14 million makeover to the stylish shopping mecca Worth Avenue. The clock symbolizes the fact that time hasn't changed and it has become an icon in the city. Also, its location makes it easy to visit it, because, within distance, there are blocks of shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. Examples of retailers here are Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., Ralph Lauren and more.

If you come to explore the labyrinth of pedestrian vias off the avenue, make sure to have enough time to explore everything that is offered. You can start with a relaxing day at the beach, follow by walking across the pier and then, grab a bite to eat.
