Palm Beach County Expeditions
Historic Palm Beach Bike Pedal
Join us on a leisurely 7-mile bike ride around Old Palm Beach which promises to bring to life this buttoned-down resort enclave that first became famous as a giddy, 1920’s era playground. We are retracing the Old Lake Trail towards the northern tip of the island as we pass under a cooling canopy of native and exotic trees and manicured flora of every hue. Witness the architectural splendor of Addison Mizner’s Mediterranean-revival palaces set amid the backdrop of semi-tropical seclusion.
Explore the grandeur of “Whitehall,” railroad baron Henry Flagler’s love-inspired, 55-room, 60,000 square foot wedding gift to his wife. This opulent landmark was singularly responsible for establishing the “Palm Beach Season” for the wealthy of the Gilded Era and every era since.
Ride with us and experience the breathtaking views of the Palm Beach Inlet as we double back on the ocean side of the island. Learn how the personalities and stories of prominent families shaped the fabric of this elegant city as you glide by such famous sites as the Kennedy mansion and the Revlon estate. Navigating through the “Styx,” we come upon a few of the oldest cottages in town, carefully preserved for history. Be sure not to miss this invigorating ride through time!
