There are many options for lodging. Singer Island has several hotels right on the beach, plus there are several near the WPB airport or just north of the airport. If you are looking for an RV Park, check out Vacation Inn Resort (VIR). VIR has 400 ownership lots with several lots available for rent. This RV Park is only 8 km (5 mi) from the ocean and Singer Island and over 11 km (7 mi) from WPB City Center. VIR has weekly and monthly rates. If you do not own an RV, they have several owners who rent out their RVs.

Parking here is plentiful along with many restaurants, shops, a movie theatre and a bowling alley. Within 16 km (10 mi) of City Center you will find Palm Beach Outlet Mall and Palm Beach Gardens Mall. (There are also many restaurants near these shopping destinations). If you are looking for suggestions on a good restaurant, the Owners at VIR will be happy to help.

If you end up staying at VIR, they have several sport activities, which include tennis, pickle ball, horseshoes, shuffle board and bocce ball. The owners of VIR have tournaments throughout the year that are open to owners and renters. One of the favourite activities each year is the weekly golf outing. The Activity Chairman keeps the golfers well organized with their tee times and the annual highlight is “Quebec vs The World” golf tournament.
