Palm Beach, Florida
Why bother with the rest of Palm Beach when you're staying at the Four Seasons?

From the April 22, 2002 Issue of New York

The next time you're in Palm Beach, duck the social whirl in town and check into the Four Seasons. It's right on the ocean and only fifteen minutes from the airport. You could easily while away an entire weekend here, sipping cocktails on the chaise lounges by the beachside infinity pool, listening to the pianist in the library, playing tennis on Har-Tru courts, and getting outdoor massages by the ocean. For more active types, there are catamaran, Windsurfer, and jet-ski rentals, as well as daylong fishing excursions, and the concierge can arrange tee times at the Atlantis Country Club or Emerald Dunes. For dinner, the Four Seasons' excellent dining room, called simply the Restaurant, features southeastern regional dishes like yellowtail snapper with watermelon relish and shrimp skewered on sugarcane and served over pineapple risotto. And if you simply must sneak onto Worth Avenue, it's just a taxi ride away.
