Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach has been named the best park in Florida by Money Magazine, a Time publication. 

In their new article, "This is the Best Park in Every U.S. State," Money Magazine says Wakodahatchee Wetlands was chosen based upon its plentiful wildlife, beautiful property, and highly-rated visitor reviews.

Wakodahatchee, means "created waters" in the Seminole language, which is a perfect name considering the park was developed by the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department. The 50-acre site used to be a wastewater treatment facility 20 years ago and the wetlands, now filled with flourishing life, were used as percolation ponds to allow reclaimed water to regenerate the water table.

Enjoy fresh, local seafood just steps from the ocean. In Palm Beach, there is only one true outdoor restaurant at the ocean’s edge. Atlantic Bar and Grill, located in the Four Seasons Resort, 2800 South Ocean Boulevard, Palm Beach serves lunch and dinner daily.

The Executive Chef, Tory Martindale, feels food should be fun and whimsical.  He is quoted as saying, “I love to create dishes by mixing different cultural pinpoints of flavor and style. A chef’s mind is a giant library of flavors, combinations, techniques and plating concepts. Whenever I build a dish, it’s like flipping through a massive directory and finding the nuances that may connect one item to another and then synergizing it all into what you are creating at the moment.”
