Lionfish in Delray Beach is now open as the new Atlantic Avenue hotspot for sustainable seafood and local organic fare. Lionfish provides fresh-catch cuisine, grass-fed meats and local, seasonal ingredients in a chic yet approachable, casual setting.

While serving more than just mouth-watering food, Lionfish is also doing its part to help save the ocean’s ecosystem by serving its namesake Lionfish, a species that is ravaging the ocean, particularly the Caribbean, by devouring fellow sea life and damaging coral reefs. The rare, delicious white flaky fish will be served in a multitude of ways, including whole fried and as the centerpiece of a citrus-infused ceviche. Every Lionfish removed from the ocean helps preserve future generations of other fish.

While the beach has historically been a good place for casual wear, the 1910 motorboat races in Palm Beach provided a place to see and be seen, as you can see in this image of the spectators by Bain News Service.

The Palm Beach Motor Boat Regatta was held annually by the Palm Beach Power Boat Association. Palm Beach society and high society from northern states would  set up chairs and umbrellas on Palm Beach to watch "speedy" motor boats race at a speed around 20 miles per hour.

Amidst everything that has been happening in the past year, meal delivery services are swiftly gaining in popularity. National and international companies have made their way onto TV screens and into homes, some of which are shipped from other states and even other countries. What if we told you that there is a local company who delivers healthy fresh food to your door? What if we also told you that this company gives back to local youth in foster care? Well, “Fit Fixins” is here, and they do all of that, and then some. Let me start by saying, this is NOT an ad. We actually really love what Fit Fixins is doing for the South Florida community.

Based in Port Saint Lucie, Fit Fixins delivers from Sebastian, Florida, through Stuart, Jupiter, Palm Beach,

The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.

These attacks impacted every American, and will never be forgotten, so on September 11, 2010 a memorial was founded in Palm Beach Gardens by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.

At Fire Station 3 on Northlake Boulevard, a large 12 ton steel beam from the South Tower of the World Trade Center building can be viewed as a memorial art piece.

The memorial is open to the general public and is located at Fire Station 3 at 5089 Northlake Blvd #5075 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

One of the most interesting characters in Palm Beach County history is “Trapper Nelson”, a legendary woodsman with a scandalous past who owned 858 acres on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter, Florida.

Originally born as Victor Nostokovich of Trenton, New Jersey, Trapper Nelson served time in Mexico for gun-running, and headed east after his release to settle in Jupiter with a new name.

He built a private paradise along the Loxahatchee River, where he constructed a handmade zoo where tourists would come to view his bobcats, raccoons, possums, alligators, and snakes.

Known as “Tarzan of the Loxahatchee”, he’d wrestle alligators, trap panthers, and amaze guests with his dashing good looks and stories of the wild.

Peanut Island is one of the many treasures of the Palm Beach County outdoors. This small island near the mouth of Palm Beach Inlet is known as a Florida wonderland of boats at the sandbar, snorkeling, camping, and kayaking. Most people assume that Peanut Island got its name because of its size or even shape, but its name is actually rooted in its history.

Peanut Island was created in 1918 with material dredged while digging out Palm Beach Inlet for safe passage. It was actually originally called “Inlet Island”, and became known as Peanut Island years later when a plan was made to use it as a terminal for shipping peanut oil. In 1946, the plan was abandoned, but the name “Peanut Island” stuck for good.
