More Fun Things in West Palm Beach

City Place, West Palm Beach.
To have had only two full days (not counting travel days) in West Palm Beach, my cousins and I managed to pack in a lot of fun things.  We spent part of one afternoon at John MacArthur Park along the beautiful sandy beach.

Beautiful beach in Macarthur State Park.

The beach was not crowded, and the sand seemed to stretch for miles along the ocean where the color of the water was reminiscent of that of the Mediterranean Sea.
Spoto's Oyster Bar.

Later that evening we enjoyed a scrumptious seafood dinner at Spoto's Oyster Bar.  It was difficult for me to choose from the extensive menu: maybe steamed mussels? but I love oysters too-- I finally decided on yellowtail snapper, and it was a fine choice.
Green's Pharmacy Luncheonette.

After we had spent one morning touring The Breakers, we lunched at Green's Pharmacy Luncheonette in Palm Beach. This place has been in business since 1938, and it seems like something right out of the 50s of my high school days.  I could not resist having a chocolate ice cream soda---soooo good.  And the grilled cheese and tomato sandwich hit the spot too.
Ice cream soda.  Yum!

After lunch we headed over to City Place to meet Elizabeth where we enjoyed an afternoon  movie, Sapphires

The Parisian 20 Theater with a theme of Paris in the 20s. 

Three story lobby of theater.

Beautiful stairway in theater.
Sapphires was a good movie.

Indeed we packed in a lot of fun during our visit to West Palm Beach.
