The Perfect Stroll

Downtown West Palm Beach offers much of the South Floridian charm with our dazzling waterfront views, perfect year-round weather, dancing palm trees and renown murals at the turn of every street corner. Whether you’re alone or with company, don’t forget to carve out some time to visit these locations on your stroll through DowntownWPB! 

Begin your journey at Jose Marti Park off of Flagler Drive and 2nd Street. The quaint park is surrounded by murals from local artists, which were installed earlier this past year as a part of the City of West Palm Beach’s Art In Public Places (AIPP) initiative.  

Remain on Flagler Drive and head a few blocks south to the Downtown West Palm Beach Waterfront for unbeatable views of the Intracoastal. Walk down one of the docks and take a seat on a bench to truly enjoy the sounds and views of the only local downtown district with a waterfront. Don’t forget to wave to boaters cruising down the waterway. Also, don’t miss the photo-op at Visit Palm Beach’s “Greetings from West Palm Beach” oversized lawn chair! 

After taking in the beautiful sights of the water, you’ll find yourself at the eastern end of our iconic Clematis Street where you can pause and enjoy a synchronized light and water show at the newly renovated Nancy M. Graham Centennial Fountain. The fountain is located directly north of the large grass-covered stretch known as the Great Lawn and lined with delicious restaurants on either side.

Make your way down Clematis Street and end your stroll on the historic 500 Block. Pass by shops, restaurants and music venues hosted in some of the oldest buildings in the Downtown District. Stop and snap photos in front of iconic Downtown murals and sculptures including the Einstein mural, the 610 Sphere, and the latest wall art by Street Art Revolution honoring Civil Rights’ activists. Check it out during the weekend when the block closes to vehicular traffic and enjoy a pedestrian-friendly day or night of activities!

Additional Tips:

  • While strolling, take a look at our street names. Notice anything? Each street is named after flowers, trees, and plants native to South Florida!

  • Take advantage of the extra outdoor seating and sidewalk space. The curbless and repaved street was part of the “Clematis Streetscape” renovation project, which was spearheaded by the City of West Palm Beach. The project was completed in 2020.
