A Peek Behind the Hedges in Palm Beach

A vintage photo of the Lake Trail from Reflections of a Vagabond blog

A few weeks back I was in Palm Beach for a wedding and I couldn’t get over how idyllic the town is–the architecture especially. My favorite spot to see some of the prettiest houses in PB was Lake Trail, a beautiful 5-mile path with Lake Worth on one side and candy-colored mansions on the other.

The trail was designed by Palm Beach founder Henry Flagler and it is a perfect place to bike, blade, run, or stroll.

For those of you who like design, it is a wonderful way to get to see the architecture of Palm Beach (although at times the hedges are so high you only get glimpses!)

Many of the houses along the water were built in the early 20th-century and each one is more stunning than the next.

I was there on a Saturday afternoon, and I couldn’t believe how quiet it was.

The houses are all painted in the sweetest hues–lots of corals, pale pinks, and creamy white.

Happy travels!  I am on vacation this week, will have TONS to share with you next week! So stop by then.

PS-While you are there, you have to stop by the fabulous vintage furniture shop, Circa Who. I went there on the advice of Marisa Marcantonio from Stylebeat and fell in love with everything! Read Marisa’s post on the shop here.
