Palm Beach County Touting Off-Season Promotions

Reed Travel Features

WEST PALM BEACH -- Clients who want to experience Palm Beach County at its least expensive should consider a visit May 1 through mid-December.

Officials at the Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau estimate that the savings are up to 50% compared with winter prices.

In addition, there are many free events.

Off-season promotions include:

* Discount coupons. The seventh annual edition of the $500 Worth of the Palm Beaches for Free discount booklet was published. It contains two-for-one offers and shopping, dining, sports and attractions deals.

The coupons, valid April 15 to Dec. 20, actually are worth more than $1,000; the bureau chose not to change the "$500" in the name of the booklet.

* Room discounts. A seventh night free is available to guests staying six consecutive nights at more than 70 participating hotels and motels based on room rates listed in the bureau's 1997 Vacation Planner.

* Reduced-rate golf. The Summer Golf-A-Round card gives visitors an 18-hole round daily at a choice of courses for free or with reduced greens fees.

For a copy of the coupon book, planner and golf card, call (800) 554-PALM.

* Free events. There is the Summer Music Series in Boca Raton's Mizner Park. Musical groups perform Sundays at 7 p.m. July through September.

Clematis by Night, sponsored by the city of West Palm Beach throughout the year, features music, food and art from 7 p.m. Thursdays along Clematis Avenue.

Sunset at Sailfish is celebrated all year, on Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. at Sailfish Marina, Singer Island. Art, music and food are featured.
