The best tourism promoters in Palm Beach County are The Breakers and the Flagler Museum. While the gorgeous architecture and tropical climate of Palm Beach island is already enchanting to tourists and locals alike, these alluring landmarks are continually boosting its sophisticated presence.

Discover the Palm Beaches, a non-profit whose mission is to promote tourism, presented well-earned Accommodation Partner of the Year Award to The Breakers, and Non-Accommodation Partner of the Year Award to the Flagler Museum to recognize their innovative marketing programs.

“When Henry Flagler first bought land on a little known barrier island called Palm Beach, he built churches, hired baseball players to entertain people, landscape painters to capture Florida’s exotic landscape and built the Lake Trail for everyone’s enjoyment,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and chief executive officer of Discover the Palm Beaches. “Visitors have been coming to our destination since then — in effect, America’s first resort destination.”

Henry Flagler also built Palm Beach island’s first luxury resorts, The Breakers and the Hotel Royal Poinciana. Continuing Flagler’s civic-mindedness, Flagler Museum’s public affairs director David Carson led 56 tours last year for visiting media and travel writers.

Carson’s efforts have not gone unnoticed. Tourists visit the Flagler Museum from around the globe. Enough so that the museum accommodates its wide range of continental guests by offering audio tours in English, Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese.

The Breakers hotel arranges its lavish accommodations at a discounted rate for travel writers hailing as far as the United Kingdom, Brazil, Canada, the Bahamas and China, and is an active member of the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association.
