There’s never a bad time to visit The Breakers Palm Beach, where activities such as walking the beach, playing a round of golf or hitting some tennis balls fill the calendar year-round. And since The Breakers is constantly adding amenities and renovating existing venues, no matter when you’ll go, there will be new additions to explore.

Of course, you may want to experience — or avoid — certain seasonal draws. January through April is Palm Beach’s high season, so while temperatures are mild and everything is open, restaurants may be crowded. Go in mid-April for the annual Palm Beach International Film Festival, which has brought celebrities and filmmakers to the island for screenings and discussions since 1996.

The November and December holidays are another blockbuster time at the Palm Beach hotel. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are celebrated with weeks of events, buffets and dinners, plus Florida extras such as beach bonfires and guided snorkeling trips. December also brings the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival to the resort and the area — in 2013, The Breakers participates with a Savannah-themed “Evening in the Garden of Good and Evil” four-course dinner.
