One of Florida's first waterfront restaurants. Old Key Lime includes a ton of outdoor seating right on the water, an over-water projector screen for a one-of-a-kind way to watch tonight's game, second floor sky bar with panoramic views of the intracoastal, outdoor tiki bar, live music all the time, floating bar (repurposed large pontoon boat), etc etc. This is south Florida living at its best! Be sure to choose whether you want to eat at the main restaurant which has a larger/more diverse menu with better food, or in the bar area which is a more bar food menu. We prefer to eat well and then move over to the bar for the live music and scenery!

I'm weary to tell anyone else about this hidden gem just 10 minutes south in Lantana. Sushi Bon has the freshest, most delicious sushi anywhere around. While they shy away from the crazy creative rolls that drown out the flavor of the actual fish and rice, they make up for it with (you guessed it) really delicious fish and perfectly-cooked and perfect-temperature rice. Make sure to check the daily specials board which will include varieties that aren't seen in most restaurants but are frequent visitors to the waters just minutes away. My favorites include wahoo and hog fish - let the chef wrap those up in a custom hand roll or just enjoy them sashimi/nigiri style!

While the service at Benny's has never been the fastest, you really can't beat eating right on the pier, overlooking the Atlantic, with the ocean breeze in your hair. It may take a while to get a table because they are ALWAYS on a wait, but once you get your food (whatever you've ordered) you will be impressed.

One of my favorite south Florida hangouts, Banana Boat is literally on the intracoastal and immediately next to the Ocean Avenue drawbridge in Boynton Beach. Enjoy the waterfront with boats going by, a freshly renovated bar and restaurant inside and out, and some of the friendliest staff around! Also, if you are "in the biz" (a restaurant/hospitality worker), there is usually a steep discount of drinks and some food items!

Funky Buddha Brewery was founded in 2010 in Boca Raton, Florida, and is committed to producing bold craft beers that marry culinary-inspired ingredients with time-honored technique. Their mantra is big, bold flavors, made exactingly with natural ingredients. So, for example, if they say a beer will taste like peanut butter and jelly, you can be sure you’ll smell and taste the fresh roasted peanuts and fruity berry jam. Flagship beers such as Hop Gun IPA and Floridian Hefeweizen, also strive towards big, bold flavor.

The Blue Heron is one of my favorite ways to fish in south Florida. This is a family-run operation that both WON'T break the bank ($50/person) and is fun for the whole family. The crew is top notch and always helping you with fresh bait, fishing tips/tricks, and storing your catch to get ready for the next haul. This is what some call "party boat" or "head boat" fishing so there will be anywhere from 12-40ish people, but the boat is huge and the excitement is always there as someone is always catching something!

Known as "Billionaire's Row", take a cruise down Ocean Boulevard for views of mansions which range anywhere from $10 million to $100 million + ($10mm might get you a small lot to build on the beach).

Not a zoo per se, they help rescue injured or ill turtles in the Palm Beach County area and only keep them on site for as long as they need for a little R&R.

Either way, take the time to explore A1A from the north end of Palm Beach, and you will be blown away by the billions of dollars of homes which flank the coast all the way down to Boynton Beach. The most impressive is a very large lot just north of the Boynton Beach inlet - consisting of over 15 acres on both sides of A1A, this 62,000 compound has a total of 33 bedrooms, 45 bathrooms, and is currently listed for a bargain $138 million.
