In the early 1900s, former oil baron Henry Morrison Flagler took an interest in Florida's south coast and began developing an exclusive resort community. He laid a railroad that would make the area more easily accessible and then built two hotels - he hoped America's first families would come to populate the area. This modest community would later grow into an iconic American destination, hosting British royalty, American movie stars, and becoming the home away from home for some of the country's most prominent families. As the century progressed, Palm Beach established itself as a luxury retreat synonymous with old-fashioned glamour and new world sophistication.
In this beautiful book, longtime Palm Beach resident and social regular Aerin Lauder takes us through her Palm Beach. From favorite restaurants like Nandos and Renatos to favorite homes like La Follia and Villa Artemis, she takes us to the elite stores of Worth Avenue and the scenic hiking trails of the Lake Worth trail, all the while telling us about the history, faces and places so identified with Palm Beach.
