Spending time alone with my dear hubby is a precious commodity these days. However, we love to sneak in dates whenever we get the opportunity. While Miss Cupcake was enjoying a day with Nana and Papa, we decided to spend the day exploring Palm Beach Island.
While doing a recent internet search on "Things to do in South Florida" I came across iScoot Palm Beach. This seemed like a fun mini-adventure that my dear hubby and I could share. We rented a motor scooter for several hours and headed off to explore the island. Before leaving, we were given a quick lesson on how to operate the scooter since this we were both novices.
Palm Beach Island is breathtakingly gorgeous and packed full of rich history. With the ivy-covered buildings and precisely groomed bushes, I basically felt like we were in the Secret Garden the entire afternoon.
On the east shore of the island, we were greeted by the bluest ocean I have ever seen in my life!
We decided to park the scooter and take a few moments to enjoy this amazing view.
And what's a good view without a good smooch?
We also made a quick stop by Phipps Ocean Park which was directly beside the first schoolhouse in Palm Beach County. The quaint schoolhouse was constructed in 1886.
Another highlight of the afternoon was the Flagler Mansion. This gorgeous home (now a museum) was once a wedding present to Henry Flagler's bride in hopes that it would be "more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world..."
Palm Beach Island is home to a variety of other attractions such as an abundance of beaches, cafes, shops, and a lovely sculpture garden. My dear hubby and I had such a fabulous afternoon with our rented scooter from iScoot Palm Beach. This is definitely something we hope to do again!
