Published by Passport Publications in West Palm Beach, Florida, the Facility Guide to The Palm Beaches is the definitive publication on sports venues in Palm Beach County. In the comprehensive guide, readers will find that large-scale professional spectator sports are just one part of what makes The Palm Beaches a world-class sports destination. In addition to the many professional organizations that have hosted events in Palm Beach County, hundreds of amateur and youth sporting events call the region home each year. The Palm Beaches boast diverse and versatile venues, including immaculate multipurpose fields, two Major League Baseball Spring Training venues, softball diamonds, hardwood courts, hockey rinks, equestrian fields, swimming pools, and so much more – all of which can be found in the Facility Guide to The Palm Beaches.
“Creating a robust comprehensive guide takes many months of designing, writing, photography, and editing,” said Michael Zeff, Senior Director of the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. “It is an honor to be recognized by the Florida Magazine Association for that hard work.”
