4 Best Places to Shop in Palm Beach, Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast

Worth Avenue

Fodor's choice

One of the world's premier showcases for high-quality shopping runs half a mile from east to west across Palm Beach, from the beach to Lake Worth. The street has over 200 shops (more than 40 of them sell jewelry), and many upscale chain stores (Gucci, Hermès, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Tourneau) are represented—their merchandise appealing to the discerning tastes of the Palm Beach clientele. Don't miss walking around the vias, little courtyards lined with smaller boutiques; historic tours are available each month during "the season" from the Worth Avenue Association.

For those looking to go a little lighter on the pocketbook, just north of Worth Avenue, the six blocks of South County Road have interesting and somewhat less expensive stores.

Betteridge Jewelers

Jewelry is very important in Palm Beach, and for well over 100 years the diverse selection here has included investment pieces. Window-shopping is allowed.

Royal Poinciana Way

Cute shops dot the north side of Royal Poinciana Way between Bradley Place and North County Road. Wind through the courtyards past upscale consignment stores to Sunset Avenue, then stroll down Sunrise Avenue: this is the place for specialty items like out-of-town newspapers, health foods, and rare books.

The Church Mouse

Many high-end resale boutique owners grab their merchandise at this thrift store run by the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, in business since 1970. The Mouse accepts cheese from October to June, Monday–Saturday, 10–4. The store's end-of-season sale draws crowds that line the block. You can feel good about your purchases here: proceeds go to regional nonprofits.
