Try lunch in the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens

As if you needed another reason to be outside this time of year! But here’s a great reason: The beautiful, tropical Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach now offers lunch, with catering by Christina’s Catering. You can sit surrounded by rare palms and cycads and Norton’s huge sculptures while nibbling on salads, panini and desserts. The tropical birds that live in the gardens will add the music. Admission to the gardens is separate and costs $15 for non-members, $10 for seniors 65 and older, $7 for students, and is free for kids under 5. The lunch service will be offered throughout the season.
