Worth Avenue in Palm Beach is often referred to as the "Rodeo Drive of Florida." I thought I had a clear understanding of what that meant, but until I visited in person a couple weeks ago, I didn't realize how special this shopping area really is. Florida is full of great shopping, and so much of it is housed in the lush, tropical landscapes that Florida is known for, but the Worth Avenue shops are certainly the crown jewel!

Located just a few blocks from pristine beaches, Worth Avenue is a luxury shopper's dream. Featuring stores such as Chanel, Valentino, Jimmy Choo and Neiman Marcus, these stores may not be light on the wallet, but I recommend making the trip no matter your budget. The ambiance alone makes it "worth" the trip. Come for a cup of coffee or lunch, and to stroll the beautiful palm tree-lined streets, or take a historic walking tour.
