Clematis Street Waterfront

Downtown West Palm Beach is blessed by its location on a very beautiful section of Florida's intracoastal waterway, nestled between the island of Palm Beach and the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Clear Lake to the west. Above and below are views of the West Palm Beach waterfront from near Okeechobee Blvd., looking north toward the new piers in front of Clematis Street.

The City of West Palm Beach waterfront project at the eastern end of Clematis Street should be done by the end of 2009. In the meantime, it's already an extremely attractive area. If you haven't seen the City of West Palm Beach for a few years, you really must come to see it. At the turn of the 21st century, West Palm Beach was really more of a small town than a city. But the Florida building boom from 2002-2006 has transformed it into a real city. The pictures below were taken facing west from the island of Palm Beach and from the bridge connecting Palm Beach to West Palm Beach. As you can see, West Palm Beach now has the appearance of a real city, though it maintains a wonderful small town charm.
