Traveling on the Brightline from Miami to Restoration Hardware in West Palm Beach

All Aboard! Traveling on the Brightline from Miami to West Palm Beach

These past few weekends I’ve been lucky to explore the Brightline’s many offerings and have been to the three stations in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach!

The Brightline provides express service with premium train travel and hospitality to make your ride an experience like no other. Since most of my friends departed Miami and moved to Fort Lauderdale, Boca and West Palm, it’s convenient that the Brightline keeps us connected. We’re able to avoid traffic and kick back with a glass of bubbles.

Navigating the Brightline and Selecting Your Seats

I’ve enjoyed Brightline’s SmartPlus and Select services. Both are designed for leisure and business travelers seeking a premium travel alternative. So what are the various options for travel?

SMART – a comfortable business-class option, with food and beverages available for purchase. Pricing ranges from $10 per short segment and $15 per long segment.

SmartPLUS – offers all the benefits of SMART, plus one complimentary snack and beverage to sweeten the ride. Pricing ranges from $20 per short segment and $25 per long segment.

SELECT –  a first-class experience with unlimited amenities to take care of your every need. From complimentary parking at the Brightline Stations to bubbles on the train, everything is included with the fare. Pricing ranges $30 per short segment and $35 per long segment.

Perfect Girls Brunch at Restoration Hardware in West Palm Beach

Restoration Hardware in West Palm Beach is like a girls dream come true. It’s four floors of interior decor fun. You can spend all day there and enjoy meals, exercising by taking the stairs, and cat napping on leather sofas… not that I would ever do that.
My favorite part of the store is that there is a dramatic 10,000 square foot rooftop space perfect for brunching! The central area is covered by a glass atrium decorated with beautiful trees and plenty of chandeliers. The menu is curated by Brended Sodikoff and offers decadent dishes like a gooey grilled cheese sandwich.

There’s plenty of vino in the wine vault and we certainly indulged… because we were taking the Brightline (and a Lyft) back to Miami.

And did I mention that out on the terrace you can catch incredible views of West Palm Beach? Well I just did!

What to Do in West Palm The Brightline station in West Palm Beach is conveniently located in City Place, so there's plenty to do!  We decided to head over to Restoration Hardware to check out their restaurant and enjoy a day of window shopping.

If you are looking for a quick weekend getaway and an opportunity to explore other parts of South Florida, then check out the Brightline! It’s the perfect way to escape without sitting in hours of traffic. The best part is you can get some work done while enjoying bubbles. A win-win-win if you ask me 😉
