Worth Avenue Association Historic Walking Tours

Beginning Wednesday, December 1, 2021 and ending April 27, 2022

Every Wednesday starting December 1, 2021 the Worth Avenue Association conducts a 75 minute historical walking tour led by Mr. Rick Rose, our historical docent.  Through colorful anecdotes and commentary, the exciting and informative tours explores the origins and character of Worth Avenue, its unique architecture, the historical significance of may of its legendary landmarks and some of its famous residents.

The tour begins at 10:30 am in Via Amore at 256 Worth Avenue across from Tiffany & Co. and Chanel.  There is free two hour parking on the street or at the Apollo parking lot for a fee.  The cost of the tour is $10 per person and a portion of which benefits the Historical Society of Palm Beach County as our “charity of choice”.  At this time there is no registration required.  Please be prompt for the tour so that we may issue your participating wrist band for identification.

You can also pick up a copy of Rick Rose’s book, Palm Beach: The Essential Guide to America’s Legendary Resort Town and take a self-guided tour of iconic Worth Avenue and the surrounding Palm Beach area.

Palm Beach: The Essential Guide to America’s Legendary Resort Town is a comprehensive illustrated guide to the “American’s First Resort Destination”. The hard-cover book is a rich and beautifully curated collection of the destination city, filled with the top must-sees, restaurants, one-of-a-kind shopping and attractions.  Copies are available at local bookstores.
