Grab a cocktail: HMF! Named for The Breakers’ founding father, Henry Morrison Flagler, HMF is an ode to the golden era of Palm Beach and the new home for a glamorous social drinking and eating experience.

Enjoy brunch: The Breakers famous Sunday Brunch at The Circle is just divine. The magnificent buffet menu features breakfast favorites, a full raw bar, a variety of chef-attended stations, and – our favorite part – an extraordinary display of treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Top of the Point | The Breakers

Share a romantic dinner: Top of the Point is the epitome of a romantic (and delicious) evening. The penthouse level restaurant features panoramic views of Palm Beach and the Atlantic Ocean that are oh-so lovely. (Insider tip: Go just before the sun sets so you can catch every gorgeous minute.)

Worth Avenue

Purchase a cocktail dress: Definitely Worth Ave! From Neiman Marcus to Chanel and Tory Burch, you can browse all of the designer boutiques on the world-famous Worth Avenue. The best part: It’s located just minutes from The Breakers.

Host a rehearsal dinner: With a vibrant atmosphere and a truly tantalizing menu, Echo Palm Beach never disappoints. The restaurant has a private room for events, incredible sushi and cocktails… and we absolutely recommend ordering the chocolate soufflé for dessert!

The Breakers

Rent bikes: You can rent bicycles from The Breakers Entertainment Center and cruise around the island in style. The Entertainment Center also offers daily rentals as well as a historical tour and couples sunset bike ride.

Aerial View of The Breakers

Lounge on the beach: The beachfront experience at The Breakers is truly enchanting. Experience a stunning tropical landscape featuring a myriad of magnificent amenities and experiences designed to complement the half-mile private beach and the resort’s Beach Club.

Enjoy an outdoor concert: Located just over the bridge in West Palm Beach, Clematis Street is the historical heart of downtown and always the spot to find great live music both indoors and out.

The Spa at The Breakers

Get a couples massage: The Spa at The Breakers is an oasis of relaxation and renewal — the perfect spot for a sensual message with your special someone. (Insider tip: If available when you visit, be sure to ask about the moonlight couples massage!) 

International Polo Club

Play Polo: If you want to watch an incredible game of polo, head to the International Polo Club of Palm Beach. There’s no better place to see the world’s finest players compete on the field.

Match at The Breakers

Shop for stylish shoes: We love shoes! Luckily, our favorite boutique, Match, is located at The Shops at The Breakers. With an amazing selection of resort shoes from leading designers and contemporary brands, there’s a shoe to fit your style. (Insider tip: After you find the perfect shoes, complete the outfit with new jewelry from Mix.)

Mix at The Breakers

Take last minute dance lessons: Fred Astaire Dance Studio in West Palm Beach caters to every age and level of ability. The franchise began in 1947 with the legendary dancer himself.

Find a flower girl dress: We just love little girls in Lilly! While the grownups can shop in the Lilly Pulitzer boutique at The Shops at The Breakers, Lilly clothes for kids can be found in the children’s fantasyland boutique Coconut Crew just next door.

Donna Newman

Find a Florist/Floral Designer to call for wedding reception décor: From the simplest to the most extravagant, The Design Studio at The Breakers can create it for you. The full-service design team is conveniently located at the resort, creating a one-stop shopping experience ideal for planning and execution of your special event.

Where to buy a Palm Beach bowtie: We just love a groom in a bowtie, especially the colorful bold bowties you can find at Ralph Lauren at The Shops at The Breakers.

Get your hair done: We have a few favorite full service salons on and just off island – Frank Cassi Beauty, Cosmo & Company Salon and Lotus Hair Studio.

Pretty Suite Inc.

Get your face made up: We love Pretty Suite Inc. Makeup artist and hair stylist Ivette Gil recently opened the posh Palm Beach boutique, but she’s been doing the makeup for so many beautiful Breakers brides for years! (Ivette even helped beautify our team for a photoshoot!)
