The Breakers

The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida was built by the Standard Oil Company magnate, Henry Flagler in 1896. It burned down in 1903 and was rebuilt in 1926 modeled after the Villa Medici in Italy.

I visited here on a beautiful spring day for a birthday luncheon.

After lunch, we took a stroll around the grounds taking in the aquamarine water views and a wedding party taking pictures.

If you're interested in staying there, the hotel includes a beach club, four oceanfront pools, 25 beach bungalows, two fitness centers, 36 holes of golf, 10 tennis courts and 11 boutiques including Guerlain, Lilly Pulitzer and Ralph Lauren. Prices start at $329 per night for a standard room.

And if you have a very special event to hold, having it in this gold ceiling ballroom would make it extra special!
