Welcome to Palm Beach Gardens
Experience a flawless shopping experience in this beautiful suburban setting that's the world's golf capital
Palm Beaches is known for being the best place for golf. However, Palm Beach Gardens stands out as the undisputed golf hub in Florida, the U.S., and internationally. To nail it down, Palm Beach Gardens is the headquarters of The Professional Golfers Association of America.
Palm Beach Gardens is a relatively new town located just west of the beaches, but close enough to smell the ocean breezes or easily visit the beach. Before John D. MacArthur, the legendary insurance mogul, started plans in 1959 to develop the city, the land now Palm Beach Gardens was predominantly cattle ranches, pine forests, or marshland. The following years through the 60s, 70s, and 80s saw the city steadily grow both in development and population, with the Gardens Mall opening in 1988.
