Take a step back in time with our History Walking Tours! The HSPBC’s tours of Downtown West Palm Beach are led by architect and historian Rick Gonzalez of REG Architects. The 90-minute guided tours showcase the evolution of the city’s buildings and landmarks, including a historical overview of urban design, through recent development. The tours have been organized each season since the development of CityPlace in West Palm Beach. The fee is $10 per person with reservations required at hspbc.org. Tours are rain or shine. Call 561.832.4164 ext. 2 for more information or reservations. Tickets are limited, so walk-ups are not guaranteed inclusion in the tour.
