1. Blowing Rocks Preserve Florida

Blowing Rocks came in first on our list for a good reason. For the adventurous soul, this is a must! We highly recommend coming here during high tide because this is when you will get the water splashing against the rocks. It is located about 20 min outside of downtown but is well worth the drive. It makes for a great place for pictures, for relaxing or swimming. There is a lot of interesting rock formations and little caves made by the water. We want to warn you to wear proper footwear, such as closed-toed shoes if you go in the summer. The sand there is scorching! This place was definitely our favorite thing to do near West Palm Beach!
