Though winter is officially over, spring is still a fantastic time in South Florida. Think late-season cool fronts and brisk (even blustery, we’ll take it), heat-crushing, ocean breezes. This is still the time to venture outside enjoy festivals, greenmarkets and the area’s incredible entertainment. This weekend get your motor running with a ride through the trails at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, focus your body and mind during a beach yoga session in Delray Beach and check out great works of art at The Square in downtown West Palm Beach.

In addition to the top five events listed there’s always something great happening at places like The Norton Museum of Art or the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. On top of that you could always just enjoy a great meal with an equally great view at one of Palm Beach County’s waterfront restaurants from Jupiter to Boca Raton. Plus, we’ve curated a list of the best things to do all year in the county, and here it is: your bucket list of 55 fun must-try things to do in Palm Beach County.
