West Palm Beach has plenty to offer for families with children looking for a fun vacation. Families will easily find plenty of things to do in the area once you find a great place to stay. Not only are the beaches close by, but the intracoastal waterway and watersports are also popular. Snorkeling and boating trips are common. Clematis Street is the heart of the historical downtown area with plenty of restaurants that cater to families. Or, take the free trolly over to Rosemary Square, another popular spot full of family-friendly dining and shopping options. Kids will love the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium (as will grown ups). Then head over to the Palm Beach Zoo to make some new animal friends. Also, Rapids Water Park is always a great way to pass some time when you're tired of the beach. Or, maybe you're headed to WPB for baseball's spring training? In that case, you'll want to be near the stadium.
