    Just north of Palm Beach Gardens is the St Lucie channel. This cuts all the way across Florida and goes thru Lake Okeechobee. There's no charge. Its just a great way of spending the day driving around and seeing a part of Florida most visitor don't see.

    I have a link for more information.

    Jonathan Dickinson State Park is located about 10/15 miles north of Palm Beach Gardens. This park is well worth a day visit.

    There is a tower that provides an over-look from which most of the park can be seen. To the west is like jungle and if you look east you can see the Atlantic Ocean.

    The Park is named after Jonathon Dickinson, who's vessel shipwrecked here in 1696. His party was captured and later released by the local Indian tribe called Jobe (Hoe-bay), which was later changed to Hobe

    The park is like a jungle and gives the visitor an idea of how south florida was 200 years ago before developement took place. The Loxahatchee River, Florida's first federally designated Wild and Scenic River, runs through the park.

    I highly recommend the river boat cruise. There is a great amount of wildlife to be seen with great photo opportunities.

    There's an old trappers homestead that is included in the boat cruise and the guides give a great account of not only the park but the earlier history of south Florida.

    This state park is right in Palm Beach Gardens and is located on the beach. It's a nature oasis in the middle of the city. The beach is undeveloped, which is very unusual for south Florida. Its quiet and offers hiking, birding watching, fishing and surfing opportunities.

    For more information, please see link to the park's website.

    The Tiki Bar

    This is a very popular restaurant and will be very busy at certain hours. Its very nice but has a laid-back atmoshere.

    It has a floating tiki bar and is located on the intercoastal waterway. This location is a great spot for taking photos of boats and the drawbridge.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Tuna salad for lunch. It's great!

    I love sushi and have been to many of the local sushi places. I would have to say that Ebisu is the best place in this area. Their rolls are very tasty and they always seem to have the freshest fish. Their tempura soba is also very flavorful. The desserts here (especially their unique take on tempura bananas) are a must try. Top it all of with excellent service by a friendly and attentive staff and you cannot go wrong.

    Favorite Dish: The eel roll is excellent. For lunch you can get their sushi lunch special or the don buri which is also great. I love their Vietnamese coffee too.

    Great gelato with a very modern decor. They also have very good coffee, coffee based drinks, sandwiches, and salads. The owner works the counter and she is very pleasant.

    Favorite Dish: All the gelato flavors are great and much better for you than ice cream.

    The cleanest, best kept mall in Palm Beach County. It has almost any store you could want and most of the large department stores. The food court has a wide variety of food and PF Chang's and Brio are there as well.
