 Palm Beach (or Palm Beach Island) is a town in Florida which was developed by the millionaire industrialist Henry Morrison Flagler in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Hotels were opened from 1894 onwards, and the area became a sought-after holiday destination for America's social and cultural élite, including the Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts, U.S. presidents and European nobility.
