Whether you are head­ing south for a few days, a week or sev­eral months there is much to do and see in West Palm Beach (WPB). If you are fly­ing there are op­tions: WPB has a nice air­port; plus, Fort Laud­erdale or Miami Air­ports are just south of WPB.

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.

Driv­ing in WPB is less crazy than most large cities. The main city streets are wide with mostly four lane roads. City Cen­ter is the main shop­ping cen­ter near down­town WPB. 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. A few favourites are: Is­land Jakes and Bi­mini Twist on Okee­chobee Blvd, PF Chang’s, Too Jay’s & Brio Tus­can Grille are near the Palm Beach Gar­dens Mall, Vic & An­gelo’s and The Water­way Cafe on PGA Blvd.

Sports fans will be thrilled to watch the Hous­ton Astros and the Washington Na­tion­als Ma­jor League Base­ball Teams for spring train­ing at The Ball­park of the Palm Beaches — just two kilo­me­tres from VIR. 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. On the hot days you will find many VIR own­ers or renters at the two heated pools at VIR. Start­ing in March, the Rapids Water Park, ad­ja­cent to VIR is open. The park has a wave pool, thirty-five water slides, in­clud­ing dual seven-story speed slides, and a fab­u­lous quar­ter mile lazy river.

The own­ers of VIR be­lieve that they have a fab­u­lous and beau­ti­ful RV Park – they call it their “lit­tle piece of par­adise.”
