Updated: New Things to Do in Palm Beach and More!

Earrings from the shop of the Norton Museum of Art

 

Since the pandemic started I’ve been to Palm Beach four times, the latest visit lasting four days. Sometimes the visit includes beach time but usually not, and I always find new discoveries like bike and walking tours, lots of eye candy, manage to do damage shopping, and fine dining. Plus, now with popups of major New York art galleries,  the reopening of the Norton, Society of The Four Arts and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, top cultural offerings too. Here are my recent finds, places to put on your list of things to do and in part 2 coming up, look for a list of restaurant picks, some tried and true, and others new.

A Jewel of a Miami Experience

Thanks to a good friend and the Funding Arts Network (FAN), I made a jewel of a discovery that I’d never imagine existed. It’s the Chapel of Our Lady of La Merced and the exceptional Martha/Mary Yamaha concert series that it hosts. Next up is a concert by Queen’s Six men’s choir . Based at Windsor Castle, they often perform  before the English Royal Family.  No ordinary venue this, it’s part of the Colonial Florida Cultural Heritage Center LLC in Allapattah that operates La Merced Chapel and La Casa. Besides being a house of worship, the Chapel is home to significant original works of art, both Spanish Colonial Art created in the New World and works imported from Europe by colonial settlers. There are tours offered and more.
