The Purple Passport to Palm Beach is part of the eBook guide series by The Purple Passport (www.thepurplepassport.com), which also includes The Purple Passport to London (http://www.amazon.com/Purple-Passport-London-ebook/dp/B005G5179W/) and The Purple Passport to Paris (http://www.amazon.com/Purple-Passport-Paris-ebook/dp/B005VHL1F0/). Essential reading for hip, discerning travelers and on-the-go locals, the Palm Beach guide provides insider tips on the South Florida resort town’s choicest hotels, nightlife, restaurants, shopping, sights, and spas.
The carefully curated selection of venues, organized by venue type for quick and easy reference, allows readers to create distinctive Palm Beach experiences. These include checking into a lavish, grand dame resort inspired by Rome’s Villa Medici with a pamper-you-silly beach club; capping off a spa day in a relaxation garden complete with hanging chairs over a reflecting pool; shopping for everything from couture gowns to flirty resort wear amid lush, flower-lined vias; scoping original Pollock and Picasso canvases under a Chihuly glass ceiling; dining on delicious Milanese fare while taking in the buzzing crowd on the hottest see-and-be-seen restaurant terrace; and dancing the night away at Palm Beach’s best party spot. Helpful maps and city-orienting information about transportation, seasonal highlights, and local culture are also included.
The Purple Passport to Palm Beach will soon be joined by eBook guides for Los Angeles and other cities found on The Purple Passport’s website. Users of the website can also take advantage of the site’s unique functionality features, including mapping and trip planning tools. Founders Jennifer Garcia-Alonso and Emily C. Brands launched The Purple Passport (www.thepurplepassport.com) in 2010 with online guides to London, Beijing, and Los Angeles, and Palm Beach and Paris guides followed in 2011; guides to New York and Washington, DC are forthcoming.
The Purple Passport team personally visits every spot that it reviews and never accepts compensation for featuring a venue on the site or in its eBooks. First-person accounts of the team’s travel experiences can be found on the companion blog, The Diary of The Purple Passport (http://diary.thepurplepassport.com).
