Palm Beach, Florida is located on a barrier island approximately 70 miles north of Miami. Across the Inland Waterway is West Palm Beach and Lake Worth. Palm Beach, in the heart of the Florida Gold Coast, is surrounded by towns such as Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Jupiter, and, to the south, Boca Raton and Lantana.
The Island of Palm Beach comprises about 10.4 square miles, about 40% of which is land and 60% is water. Contrary to Miami, this is not a town consisting of high rise condominiums. Instead, there are stately mansions and estates. Many well-known people have homes on the island, including Donald Trump, Vera Wang, Jimmy Buffett, Malcolm Glazier, and other celebrities. The average per capita income is a little over $100,000 per year. The town has approximately 10,500 residents, and most of them are over 65 years of age; women slightly outnumber the men as would be expected in that age group.
Palm Beach was developed in the early 1900s by Henry Flagler, an oil and railroad mogul. He commissioned two hotels on the island, as well as his own mansion. The Breakers is still in existence today, but the magnificent Royal Poinciana Hotel was torn down in 1935 due to hurricane damage and the economic conditions during the Great Depression. Whitehall, Henry Flagler’s 55 room mansion, has been turned into the Flagler Museum which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
While the residents of Palm Beach are mostly retirees, they may be up sizing or downsizing their residences and moving about on the island or to neighboring towns. They may be looking for a moving helper in Palm Beach. These older people will be seeking a quality mover to move the precious belongings that they have accumulated over a lifetime.
