Whether you are planning to arrive by car or by boat, getting to the 30th annual Palm Beach International Boat show is easy and convenient. Taking place along scenic Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach from Lakeview Avenue to Banyan Boulevard, the Palm Beach International Boat Show offers several accessible options for drivers and boaters alike to get to the show.
If you are planning to drive, the show is surrounded by multiple municipal and privately operated parking lots and garages. Parking locations are within walking distance of the show’s three main entrance gates, which are located at Trinity Place, Evernia Street and Clematis Street just off Flagler Drive. There is plentiful signage along U.S. 1 directing drivers to boat show parking and entrance gate locations.
A new option this year is $10-a-day parking at the Phillips Point west parking garage at 777 S. Flagler Drive, a short walk from the show’s southern entrance at Trinity Place.
If you park at CityPlace, located at 700 S. Rosemary Ave., catch the free Downtown Trolley and ride it to Clematis Street and Narcissus Avenue, just steps away from the show’s northern entrance. Picking up passengers every 10 minutes, the trolley’s CityPlace stop is located in front of Macy’s on Rosemary Avenue, between Hibiscus and Gardenia Streets.
Boaters who prefer taking advantage of Palm Beach County’s beautiful waterways are invited to come to the show by boat and tie up free at Come-by-Boat docks located south of the in-water boat show displays starting at Fern Street.
The Palm Beach International Boat Show is owned and sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, Inc. (MIAPBC), managed and produced by Show Management, presented by Palm Harbor Marina and co-sponsored by Gosling’s Rum, Yachts International Magazine, Smallwoods Yachtwear, GEICO, Budweiser, Land’s End and The Palm Beach Post.
