Why should kids have all the fun? As more baby boomers crave experiences, Palm Beach County’s Cultural Concierge helps visitors plan fun and enlightening summer activities.


Palm Beach County, a region so dense in arts and culture that it has the world’s first Cultural Concierge to help travelers plan their cultural experiences, is leading a new trend in travel — “summer camp” adventures for grown-ups. As baby boomers and sophisticated travelers shift their focus from collecting “things” to collecting “experiences,” they are rediscovering The Palm Beaches as a beautiful and enriching summer destination for cultural tourism.

The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County is encouraging travelers to get away from it all this summer with learning, exploration and memorable adventures surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of The Palm Beaches, curated especially for them by the Cultural Concierge.

“From photography classes to film appreciation, to birding by kayak and surfing lessons, The Palm Beaches offer so many fun and educational experiences for adults,” said Bama Lutes Deal, Cultural Concierge at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. “What better time than summer to get away from it all in a tropical paradise that offers so many cultural adventures?”
